View Full Version : [ubuntu] Something to be concerned about ?

December 8th, 2008, 02:17 AM

EVERYtime I now go to shutdown Ubuntu, I get the attached error message. Is this something I should be concerned about, and/or is there a way I can know for sure which program it is ?

you can try closing one program/process at a time and see if it was the one causing problems.

System → Administrator → System Monitor

If that isn't working you might need to get more dirty and see what processes are REALLY under the hood.

open up the terminal Applications → Accessories → Terminal

ps -A

This gives you ALL processes (hence the -A)

ps -A | more

This gives you all processes in a list you can move with your keyboard.. like "space bar" and end scrolling through the list by pressing ctrl+c

to kill a process use this (note that 26400 is an example of number of the process.. you'll get the number from ps -A)

kill 26400
