Another application holding yum lock.
August 20, 2009 2 Comments
Many a times it so happens that when you trying to do some stuff with yum command when you are connected to internet.It shows
“Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit…”
you can resolve that by following the command
# ps aux | grep yum
This shows you the processes holding the yum lock.
Now you can do:
# kill -9 31542
# kill 31542
whatever the processes may be.
Now your yum will work fine.
