Just installed Fedora 7, receiving yum error


I have just installed Fedora 7 x86_64.

[roy@localhost ~]$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.20-2925.9.fc7xen #1 SMP Tue May 22 09:29:36 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[roy@localhost ~]$
But when I type

[root@localhost ~]# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/*
I get the following error:

warning: cannot get exclusive lock on /var/lib/rpm/Packages
Stopping yum-updatesd with "/etc/init.d/yum-updatesd stop" does not help. I get the same error when I try to import the rpm keys.

Can someone please tell me how to fix this?

Thanks for your help.

Never mind! The command

# chkconfig --level 235 yum-updatesd off

did the trick.
