mint7 openoffice zombie

Postby talkeetnik » Mon Jun 22, 2009 9:32 am

Just noticed this the other day
openoffice still runs fine....
Happens every reboot and start of OO in Mint
Ubuntu 9 does not have this issue.

Running ps ax in terminal

3805 pts/1 Ss 0:00 bash
3820 ? Z 0:00 [ooffice] <defunct>
3833 ? Sl 0:02 /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice.bin -writer -spla
3846 pts/1 R+ 0:00 ps ax

Haven't dealt with zombies in awhile.....
Of course kill -9 doesn't work with these guys

Not a critical issue just thought someone would like to know. !?

I get exactly the same
Z 0:00 [ooffice] <defunct>
if I open OO
I wonder - could it have to do with he splash?
We both got -writer -spla which of course should have been -splash
I don't find it in top so I would not worry to much
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
