Thread: Getting a message on running Yast2

  1. #1

    Default Getting a message on running Yast2

    I am getting the following message over and over again when I run YaST2:

    PackageKit is still running (probably busy).

    Ask PackageKit to quit again?
    though I am sure there is no such thing running.

    (Assuming that is on using YaST > Software and not on one of the many other YaST functions).
    How can you been sure? How did you check? Do you have the update applet in your desktop or not?

    Try YaST2-Services-manager and scroll down to see packagekit and packagekit-background.
    If you did a default install you should see the packagekit daemon as Active (Running) which does no harm, and packagekit-background as Active for a few minutes after boot until it has checked whether there are updates to install (which locks other software management applications) and Inactive (Dead) thereafter, when you are able to change software on the system without messing things up.
    If you don't like Package Kit you can disable those services or uninstall PackageKIt and its dependencies altogether.

    YaST2 seems to be working now. I have one last question. Has the upgrade from beta to stable been implemented automatically or one has to do something about it?
