I'm trying to install the Pydev in my ubuntu and it gives me error messages that I can't quite understand (I'm a newbie for the linux as well). Below is the error message. Any help would be appreciated.
ysl@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install eclipse sun-java 6-jdk
password for ysl:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
I'm quite new to Linux myself but can it be that you recently had a crash ?
You could try deleting the lockfile, sould be something like
sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_locking#Lock_files for an explanation..
