    Adept frozen. Can someone help?

    Hey all. I just recently installed Hardy Heron, and the KDE 4 desktop environment, and I'm having issues with Adept. While trying to download the sun java 6 package, Adept seems to have froze. I let it sit for close to 2 hours without any change, so I then switched off my computer, and attempted to run adept again, but every time I try, I keep getting the error message that its already running/another instance is already running, and I can't seem to unfreeze it. I was thinking about installing Synaptic from source, then uninstall Adept, but since its frozen, I can't get changeinstall and the one build program for converting source files into DEB. files. Can someone either help me unfreeze it, or get Synaptic running?

    Thanks in advance

    (PS. I have a 64 bit system.)

    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?

    This is the message I get in terminal when I did that.
