yum and firewall problems.



Hello everybody,
I am running f8 and it works like a charm, well nearly!
_Problem number one._
Every now and then when I try to update software through yum I get the following information. It does not work all of the time and is downright annoying.

Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 2723.
Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit...

At the same time the front end of f8 "the packet manager" used for software is blocked also. I can not understand why it does this. Could it be the automatic update the style "you have 10 new updates"? Has anybody got a pkill quick and dirty command to get rid of this without too many problems.

_Problem number two
_I can not change my firewall rules through the front end "system-config-firewall.py" A box comes up with the changes which I have asked for and at the end it says "failed to restart iptables" What is more on downing the machine the iptables modules are not removed, they "fail". I would be delighted to get these problems out of the way. Thanks a lot. John Brennan-Sardou.
