Unable to get exclusive lock
« on: February 18, 2010, 07:39:26 PM »
Hello
This usually means that another package management application (like apt-get or aptitude ) already running.
Please close that application first.

My question is what  (like apt-get or aptitude ) do i close? The only problem i have with Ubuntu 9.10 is the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240 card.I tried to load envyng but it won't load.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
