[Fedora Linux] Yum Problem Fix 1

When trying to install some packages using yum, sometimes we get this error:

Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 5191.

In this post, we’ll see how can we fix it.

To fix this problem, it’s easy: open /var/run/yum.pid and remove that pid number from the file.

echo > /var/run/yum.pid

Enjoy !
