Can't access package management after fresh install.

I just did a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.1. It went without a hitch. However, I can’t do any updates, or add any repositories. I keep getting the following message: “ Accessing the Package Management Failed. System management is locked by the application with pid 19892 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base). Close this application before trying again. . . .”

What can I do about that?

Any help given me will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Try opening a terminal and su and type killall y2base

It worked better than a mojo. Thank you very much. Online updates are happening as I type.
