Accessing Package Management failed

Opensuse 11.1 / Gnome
Accessing Package Management failed
System management is locked by the application with pid 4503
What can I do to stop this application ??

You can use kill command.
eg: kill 2524 (where 2524 is the pid no)

this is information after killing pid…

y2base: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0.
YaST got signal 15 at YCP file /usr/share/YaST2/clients/repositories.ycp:1226
/sbin/yast2: line 437: 6203 Terminated $ybindir/y2base $module “$@” “$SELECTED_GUI” $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS…

What can I do to resolve this error??


This is a root process need to be su to kill it

Try this one:

Thread #410519-yast2-stoped-working

Come on, this is about the installer, and about the integrity of your system. You don’t just ‘try this one’. A reboot should have done the job.

The error is just a message that the Yast interface has lost it’s connection with the program. Could have been killed by entering a terminal window and typing: su, enter rootpassword, killall y2base.

> A reboot should have done the job.

WHOA! there is no good reason (i can think of) to support an idea in
help-needed-users that the “reboot to fix” mentality of some other
operating systems is the way to go here…nope!


Thanks, Knurpht. This helps me a lot!
