Could you please explain "kill kill"?
I am familiar with "kill", and "killall", but "kill kill" confuses me!
Sorry, meant sending signal 9 SIGKILL to the process. It should be unblockable but under Ubuntu this is not the case.
[quote]More helpfully, could you take a screenshot of your System Monitor and show us what these immortal processes are?
Would like to do that but the problem is not related to any particular kind of process and I can't generate the problem by will. I simply don't know why it happens just that it do.
The only solution is to shutdown the system and this might not even work due the rough process. The system ends up waiting for the process to finish. Manual reset is then the only option as far as I know.
