    Default How to manully unlock file lock?

    Hey guys,

    I had to force kill the yast, however, it didn't had chance to unlock the files it lockes while it workes. I know there is a way to manully unlock them, but don't know how to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to check that the program it says (with PID) is not running. If it
    is not, then look under /var/lock/ to see if it left a lock file and remove it.

    Note: next time, don't use glowfoto. It times out and revert to the main
    page, I have to click back several times to see the photo.

    It is not correct to start with a kill -9. You should first try a normal
    kill, and only if that does not work, change to -9, which will leave broken
    files and such behind.
