Hello all -- I am making a complete transition to Linux after deciding that I really hate Windows. To that end, I have been using Ubuntu. I started out with Natty and moved to Oneiric a few days ago. I am experiencing an issue in Oneiric that I did not ever experience in Natty.
It happens when I try to have more than one sudo command running at once -- anything at all that requires sudo, NOT just installing or downloading packages. I get the pair of error messages that says:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
So I am only able to have one sudoed command running at once. To run another one, no matter what it is, I have to kill the other. This issue is NOT associated with frozen processes. Now, I know this never happened to me in Natty, and it is noticeably a pain in the neck in Oneiric. I need to be able to run more than one sudoed command at a time.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?
