    can't update with yum or pup


    Hey everyone
    yesterdat i installed FC6 on a friend's pc and i have a problem updating with either yum or pup, its something that i hadnt had problems with with my computer, it says that another program is looking for updates and just shuts down.

    press Ctrl+Esc, look for process 'updatesd' or something like that and kill it. actually, 'yum updater' runs in background by default and it doesn't allow other instances of package manager.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
