bailing from urmpi in mid-installation locks urmpi database....


Hello!
Since I was being prompted for a disk I didn't have during installation of DVDrip, I hit ctl-z to get out. Now, when I try to run urmpi again, I get the message
"
urpmi database locked
"
How do I go about unlocking this?

thanks in advance,
doug

2 methods............

the easiest is to simply reboot, believe it or not.

the other way is to open a terminal as root, type..........

ps -aux (enter)

that will give you a list of all running processes. look for the PID number associated with any instance of urpmi, rpm, rpmdrake, &/or curl & kill them by typing........

kill (pid number here) (enter)

and don't stop installations or updates with ctrl+z anymore!
