Assassin doesn't close packagekitd anymore and so blocks opkg

Assassin starts packagekitd but doesn't close it if itself is closed.

This makes other interfaces like the non-gui opkg unable to work. This patch should fix it:

om-assassin-read-only/src$ diff assassin.c assassin.c.old
< system("killall packagekitd");

I couldn't test it because I couldn't manage to compile assassin on my neo at all..

Hi Rorschach,

Thanks for reporting and writing patch for this.

I had thought about this, and decided not kill packagekitd few months ago. So it's a feature.

packagekitd will terminate itself automatically after 5 mins without requests.

GUI users will not know the existence of packagekitd, it's transparent. For power users, I think they will know how to deal with packagekitd. (Use it or kill it) :-P
