KILL signals performed on init (LM 14)

Postby FeatherFoot on Tue Jan 08, 2013 12:16 am

Hello LM forums.

(Not sure where to put this, so it's in this subforum. If anyone knows where this would make more sense, please let me know.)

Earlier today, I decided to try the impossible and try to kill init via terminal. Here are the results.

Signal 1(SIGHUP), 3-5 (SIGQUIT, SIGILL, and SIGTRAP), 7-10 (SIGBUS, SIGFPE, SIGKILL, and SIGUSR1), 12-29 (SIGUSR2 to SIGIO), and 31 (SIGSYS, Bad System Call) did absolutely nothing.

Signal 2 (SIGINT, Interrupt) rebooted the system.

Signal 30 (SIGPWR, Power Failure) shut down the system (analogous to the halt command).

Signal 7 (SIGABRT, Process Aborted) and Signal 11 (SIGSEGV, Segmentation Fault/Segment Violation) both caused a kernel panic.

This post is for informative purposes only. I am not responsible for any loss of data by trying any of this. When I did this I had absolutely nothing important to save or anything. If you DO try this, I STRONGLY ADVISE you to save any work you have open.

Also, I am new to these forums. :)
