View Full Version : Adept upgrade
May 23rd 2006, 03:31 PM
Since I've been braggin on Adept. This a.m. doing my daily upgrade, during apply (commit) got a flag warning saying unable to commit. I hit ok and adept closed. Re-booted and tried to open adept and got a flag saying I could not upgrade or do anything because something else was using adept. Noticed during download of upgrade that Adept was going to be upgraded. What happened??

What you could do is CTRL + ESC (KDE System Guard) and see if adept is listed there. If you see 'adept' in the list the there will be a PID number next to it. note this number then in your console :-
sudo kill ####* * *(#### being whatever the number is)
Adept in Dapper is kind of buggy still and a few are using synaptic as an alternative package manager, the other alternative is to use the console to update
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I think it's because adept crashed and left the file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock present,
you should try :
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
Then try again

Thanks all. This is a great forum. Did the sudo apt-get update trick and it gave me dpkg --configure -a to correct problem with some options listed. I gave it y and it cleared the problem. It crashed during commit. Scary thing.
