Frozen Screen, How to kill the process without Power-Off?
Posted on 2005-04-09
I am still somehow a newbie to Linux, and am missing some essential commands. One is "killing a frozen process" in GUI when I got a frozen non-responsive screen. Here is my details.
My Linux 2.2.14/RedHat 6.2 is stand alone, like a personal computer, and not Networked. The most problematic freezing is the cases when I am using FileManager (GNU Midnight Commander 4.5.42), and am doing the files to drag to copy or drag to print (on printer applet). So, recently I am avoiding "dragging" files, but do other ways (menu -> File -> copy ; OR right-mouse click -> copy). In PC, <Ctrl><Alt><Del>, in Macintosh <Alt><AppleCommand><Esc> works fairy well to kill the frozen process, but I haven't found the counter part command in Linux_X_GUI. Any suggestions? Thank you. mkido
