Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 577690
blocks yum backend, no option to disable
Last modified: 2010-03-28 17:57:14 EDT
Description of problem:
kpackagekit apparently blocks the yum backend and it is entirely non-obvious how to disable it in the kde-desktop.
Only way to disable it that worked for me was removing it with "rpm -e", however a more fine-grained approach (eg per user config) would be nice. Just because I prefer other packaging tools should not force system-wide uninstallation.
Up to date Fedora 12
This is not a bug, its just how the system works. Kpackagekit and yum are both package managers and while one is running the other is locked out.

so how do I stop it without uninstalling it? Sorry about the dumb question but is not obvious.
It can be disabled in System Settings / Advanced User Settings / Service Management.
