I am currently at the command line on my Centos 6.5, 64 bit installation.
When I tried to install binutils
yum install binutils
(please note that I am already root)
I get the error :
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit ...
The other application is: yum
Memory: 19 M RSS (220 MB VSZ)
Started: Thu Oct 23 15:56:20 2014 - 2:34 ago
State: Running, pid 399
And it keep repeating this over and over. Normally when this happens I can kill it in only one way - roboot.
Reboot works and I get the command prompt back and then I enter 'yum install binutils' and the sequence begins again.
Ctrl c will not stop it only a reboot will.
So while I am looking at the command line, how do I stop this from occuring again?
