View Full Version : Yum Lock Problems

21st February 2012, 08:15 PM
I have been distro-hopping due to some problems with my current distro. I have decided to try Fedora (Never used this distro before). All has been well and good, until I came to the package manager, I am getting countless errors with yumlock on apper/packagekit. Is this a problem with Yum or Packagekit? If I remove PackageKit/Apper an Replace it with YumEX will that fix my problems?

Not sure. I never had this problem.
If you have an process running in PackageKit and the window is open Yum will remain in queue until PackageKit stops and vice-versa. You can't use both simultaneously.
