    You must have another package manager already running, like update manager, add/remove program, etc...So close anything that might be open.
    Linux doesn't let 2 package managers to work at once, in order to prevent system damage.

    If you are sure that you do not have another package management process running, try
    #rm /var/lib/urpmi/.LOCK /var/lib/rpm/RPMLOCK
    After that try to use urpmi again.

    it gives following lines.

    [root@unknown00e04c106014 comp1]# rm /var/lib/urpmi/.LOCK /var/lib/rpm/RPMLOCK
    rm: cannot lstat `/var/lib/urpmi/.LOCK': No such file or directory
    rm: cannot lstat `/var/lib/rpm/RPMLOCK': No such file or directory
    [root@unknown00e04c106014 comp1]#

    how shall i disable cd/dvd rom media for installation?
    thanx again.
