Archive for August 24th, 2015 trick for Opening UI of the FRITZ!WLAN Repeater 1750E – via: AVM International

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/24

Because points to my Fritz!BOX router, it cannot be used to get to my Fritz!WLAN Repeater. I just learned about the trick does.

Which saves me from remembering the repeater IP-address or name.

Zypper or YaST locked: System management is locked by the application with pid ##### (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base).

A while ago, I got this error:

Accessing the Software Management Failed
System management is locked by the application with pid 17730 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base).
Close this application before trying again.

Would you like to abort or try again?

[Retry] [Abort]

What happened is that a terminal session that had YaST open got disconnected (don’t you love WiFi) while checking for updates.

I tried to re-login and re-check for updates and got this error.

Looking for process 17730 indeed revealed it was YaST:

snap:~ # ps 17730
17730 pts/0    Sl+    0:11 /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base online_update ncurses

A simple kill would get rid of that process:

sudo kill 17730
