Part of the telco merger between Vodafone and 3 means a reimaging of the brand. For many years 3 has supported the endeavours of the Australian cricket team, but from this upcoming Ashes tour Vodafone Hutchison Australia will pick up the cheque. iTWire spoke to Vodafone CEO Nigel Dews about cricket, Android and 3G networks.
I was using my Ubuntu when suddenly, probably due to a lot of processes running, it stopped working. So I did Ctrl+Alt+F1, and then searched for a command to kill the process which was causing all the trouble. I am a novice, so I thought that maybe "kill" might be some command to kill some process.
So I typed
There I saw "kill -9 -1" as a command to kill all processes I can.
I imagine that kill -9 still just sends a signal to a process. If the process is not behaving well, I would imagine that kill -9 would have no effect. Indeed, today for the first time I saw kill -9 have no effect when sent to a stuck ruby process. So here is my question: Is there some harsher way to kill a process?
I can't figure out how to kill this process. I ran du, but it took too long so I tried to kill it. It didn't die. I've tried SIGKILL, SIGSTOP, SIGINT, etc, with no effect (can't kill it, can't stop it).
