    Angry a big problem when aborting updates in YaST2

    i have (and think all opensuse users have) a big problem when aborting updates in yast2. when i try to cancel updatting in yast2, there is no a botton for "abort all" to cancel all the process and i force to hit "abort" botton for each update. for example in my recent update, i cancel the process and press "abort" botton anout 20 times and even whit this, i successed to cancel about 35% of process and i think if i want to continue like this i should press "abort" botton about 100 times more.
    so, is there any way for "cancel" or "abort all" update process?
    here is the picture to clear this situation:

    Pull your ethernet out
    Keep aborting and click the close window button too
    Eventually it should quit

    And don't use update applet (kpackagekit) again.

    Do this

    No.

    You can use kill, but you risk database corruption.

    close botton do not work, also kill command does not kill Yast2 in this situation.

    Kill does indeed work, but you have to use the right incantation >:-)

    This should be fixed in latest libzypp and Yast:

    Try to update Yast from Yast:Head repository.
