Here is the sence.
I had a lot of web pages in RAM at the time and did not want to dump it by unlocking yum through the process of restarting my computer. The daemon that monitors Yum does not always unlock it .

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
If that doesn't work (still locked), then you will need to remove the lock file. I'm not sure where it is located, but it probably starts with a dot, so it will be "hidden" unless you look for it with "ls -a" to show hidden files in a directory.
Anyway, post the contents of /etc/yum/yum-updatesd.conf here just so we can be sure there isn't something in the configuration that may contribute to this problem.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
