    Default Unable to do a lot of things (no better way to put it)


    I had Windows and Ubuntu dual-booted on my computer, installed Ubuntu to
    the wrong partition, and then ended up crashing both operating systems.
    I bought a CD drive online. To use it, i needed an operating system. So
    I installed Fedora 9 off of a USB Drive, and no I replaced that with
    OpenSUSE 11.1

    Anyway, Whenever I try to Add/Remove programs, it will try and boot
    itself up, then I get an error message saying-

    "System Management is locked by the application with pid 4345
    (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base). Close the application before trying
    again."

    Is this particular application conflicting with old
    windows/fedora/ubuntu files? I found out I still have some from my D
    drive.

    On another note, how can I make OpenSUSE use all of my hard drive
    space? I noticed its on a seperate partition.

    In a terminal try
    sudo kill 4345

    Then try your add/remove again

    Do you mean you want it to use unallocated space on your harddrive?

    Anyway, to start with in a terminal type

    su
    password
    fdisk -l

    and post the results here

    Did you sort out giving openSUSE more space? The fdisk command I gave
    you just lists your current hard drive partitions.

    oh. I thought it did it for me. It says I have all my hard drive space.
    but I did reinstall it, and it asked me to unmount some of the
    partitions, so maybe thats why,

    And for the y2base, i just tried typing the kill and rebooting will not
    work, it just says a different pid.

    Don't reboot after using kill, just give it a couple of seconds to kill
    the process then go ahead and do what you want with add/remove programs

    I had the same problem regarding application management being locked and
    suspected that it was the Updater Applet. I let the applet search for
    updates and once it found the updates and notified me, I went back to
    the application management via YaST and the error didn't show up
    anymore.
