# zypper ps
PackageKit is blocking zypper. This happens if you have an updater applet or
other software management application using PackageKit running.
Tell PackageKit to quit? [yes/no] (no):

AFAIK zypper ps is based on "lsof" - I see no reason (except annoying the user
;-) why it should kill any software using PackageKit before reading the lsof
output. lsof is totally independent from PackageKit, RPM, libzypp, zypper etc.

Please remove the check for PackageKit usage in zypper ps unless there is a
good reason to keep it ;-)
