just finished installing Fedora 6. It tells me that i have 95 updates available. I try to down load them but i get this error "Another application is running which is accessing software information" I dont have anything running, i've tried rebooting with no luck. I dont know enough about the programs that run at startup to which would be ok to shutdown or not so i have no clue which program is conflicting here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thnks in advanced

Open up a terminal window and run "yum update" as root. What does it do or say?
