    Question problem with software update in opensuse 12.3

    I have installed opensuse 12.3 kde. i am trying to update and install tools i require, but error shows, packagekit is locking, please wait. even after restarting system, 1st command i put is "zypper update". after some time, no response. Is anything gone wrong with suse servers ? what is the error ? i have not faced this problem before. i am using suse since 11.2 version. is anyone facing same problem ?

    Nothing wrong with the servers. Two fixes:
    1. Remove the cd/dvd entry in the repo manager; if the disc you installed from is not available the refreshing of the repos will stumble upon it and produce an error
    2. Remove Apper. Apper calls Packagekit, which then locks the rpm database.

    I had the same problem as well after the first boot. I killed Apper and packagekitd and used zypper as usual. After the second boot, I haven't had the problem again.
