    Did you try rebooting?

    Sorry. One more thing. Are you doing this as root?

    OK...
    need some more info here buddy....

    remember you CANNOT install rpms via two methods simultaneously becoz while installing the RPM database needs to be locked...
    so i m guessing ur installing it from the CLI while YaST or SMART is running in the background....

    just close whatever is lower priority...and u should be on ur way...
    cheers
