Hi, I'm new to Fedora and new to linux.
My machine is running slow (AMD64 1gig ram, 200gig sata drive), and I am trying to diagnose the problem. I tried to update with yum and it says
"Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 7367.
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit..."
I found the yum.pid file and renamed it but it was a temp fix. The gui package updater is not running, as far as I can tell but I'm not sure how to check the background apps.
Has anyone come across this and is there a simple fix?
Alternately, could a total machine slowdown be caused by faulty video drivers?
Thanks for the help
