    "stuck" processes...how to find and "kill"

    Mostly interested...but also curious ; ) I guess the real final answer depends on what it is, what is actually stuck. When I find out how to find the stuck process, then I when I do run into a problem, I can hunt down a stuck process to see if it's the culprit, and then kill it.

    "stuck" processes...how to find and "kill"

    well that makes sense about the "zombie" processes. when I tried to kill them, I got a message that the PID did not exist. here is an excerpt from the man pages for "ps" (which is what Darkshadow said) When printing using the command keyword, a process that has exited and has a...

    "stuck" processes...how to find and "kill"

    it's definitely not an obvious applications that is either not responding and red in the force-quit dialog. It's an interesting idea, but way too much work, since there are 70 processes and over half taking up 0.0%. I was hoping (figuring based on the power of UNIX), that there would be a...

    "stuck" processes...how to find and "kill"

    In the terminal, using top, I see that there is a "stuck" process. But top does not identify the state of any process, so I can't tell which one is stuck. So I try "ps aux" and get a very long list of items, but they are just active, sleeping, or zombie. None of the zombie items can be acted...

    What's your opinion about Macwarez?!

    I don't mind a little software piracy of M$ products and products that are severly flawed. Of course d/l to try out is okay too. Strange ethics, but i get by with them.

    I agree, moving files is very slow, even on my G4 DP 867Mhz, 10.2.6, 768MB!!!! Try this Test...... 1. Create a text file with just "hi" inside. call it "test" 2. Create 2 folders on the desktop. "Folder 1" and "Folder 2" 3. Put test into "Folder 1" 4. Now duplicate "test" until...

    Software for Mac like Microsoft Project

    I wouldn't say it's better, but it's Mac OS X native. (and I think the newest version has a server option to allow better sharing of project planning.) Product Description: FastTrack Schedule 8 makes it easy to organize, track, and manage all your project details. Project plans come...

    Mac Os 9 Wont Install On Osx New G4!help Me!

    Maybe my 9.2.2 installer CD did NOT come with my computer. It could be from a G4/733 QuickSilver that we also have. Funny thing is that we have two G4/867 and two 9.2.2 install CDs, but only G4/733 and no other recent towers, just TiBooks.
