General :: RHEL 4 Reboot Causes Tomcat Process To Not Be Started By Non-root Account

May 25, 2010

I have a startup script placed in /etc/init.d wherein I make the following call:

nohup sudo -u myuser $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh 2>&1

This causes Tomcat to be run as myuser, which is expected. However after issuing the reboot command the system starts up and root is now the owner of this process. How can I force the process to be started off as myuser on reboot?

Ubuntu :: Phantom User Still Logged In - Bash: Kill: (5485) - No Such Process

Sep 13, 2010

$ uptime
09:55:00 up 7 days, 6 min, 2 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

..but I'm the only user logged in!

$ who -a
system boot 2010-09-06 09:48
run-level 2 2010-09-06 09:48 last=

[code]....

looks as though this is the culprit, but...

$ kill 5485
-bash: kill: (5485) - No such process

This process doesn't exist in the /proc folder or the output of ps. Does anyone know how this happened, and how to remove this ghost user from my system without a complete reboot? I think I have seen a similar thing on a RedHat machine ages ago but I have never figured out how to log out these ghost users.

$ uname -a

Linux ubuntu 2.6.24-28-server #1 SMP Wed Aug 25 16:07:16 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

General :: Kill Remote Processes Started With SSH?

Aug 26, 2009

I've run into what is apparently an age-old SSH problem, which is that killing an ssh client process does not kill the remote process (unlike e.g. rsh). There seem to be lots of patches and a couple of open bugs on this topic that have been there for about 10 years or so... Having convinced myself by googling that there is no easy solution, I'm now looking for a workaround of some sort. I'm writing a testing framework so the processes I'm running remotely could be anything at all, i.e. I only have control of the client side. Also the remote processes are of course highly unstable and I need to be able to terminate them if they hang. ssh -t won't work for me as I don't necessarily have a terminal. Finding the remote process ID would be enough so I can do ssh <machine> kill <pid>, but I don't see any way to do that either. Just using ps, pgrep etc seems to suffer from not being able to uniquely identify the correct process, and killing the wrong process is of course very bad.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kill The Entire Session (as Root) For A User?

May 5, 2010

I've got a somewhat anemic box, resource-wise, set up in the office where any authorized user plus a guest account can log on. Guest is tightly restricted, but we get a lot of people passing through who need one-time or occasional access - this isn't the big problem. What's causing me problems is that a user will log in, walk away or go to the john and the screen locks. Next user (or this one comes back) and winds up doing another login. At the end of a week or so, I may have a couple of dozen sessions listed when I ask for "users". Since some of these session contain open applications they eat up an awful lot of a marginal amount of available memory. How do I kill the entire session (as root) for a user? Gotta be simple but it's not obvious to me.

Ubuntu :: User Not In Sudoer File?

Jan 17, 2010

I an a relative linux newbie who just installed ubuntu 9.10 workstation (I have enstalled around 4 times on viurtual machines but generally do nothing with Ubuntu other than get Apache, MySql and php going) and was able to do most of want I wanted with the initial user (user1) using sudo.

It was painful however to work with Nautilis and Gedit, because everything i tried to do said I did not have the permissions.

I then added my user (the initial user) to group root. Nautilis and Gedit then allowed me to easily edit files (I only used to verify I COULD edit files - I did NOTactually edit any)

I then rebooted my computer and since then I cannot so anything with sudo. I get a message "user1 is not in the sudoers file". If I do groups user1 I can see user1 is listed as a member of user1 and root. However, Nautilis and Gedit respond with no permission to everything again.

I also cannot su to root because it says invalid password (I had not originally set a password for root but it will not accept leaving password blank and now it will not let me sudo to create a password).

what I need to do to make user1 work with sudo again?

Software :: Unable To Kill Process With Kill -9

Jan 13, 2011

the process is mcelog. When I do as root kill -9 2323 which is pid of mcelog the process is not killed. I tried doing the same from top, press K and enter pid of mcelog. doing ps auwx | grep mcelog I see there are several results. I tried killing all of them like kill -9 2355 2341 3425 2345. But re-running the above commands still shows them as running. How else would I troubleshoot this to avoid restarting of the box.

General :: What To Do When Ctrl-c Can't Kill Process?

Feb 9, 2011

Ctrl-c doesn't always work to kill the current process (for instance, if that process is busy in certain network operations). In that case, you just see "^C" by your cursor, and can't do much else.What's the easiest way to force that process to die now without losing my terminal?

Summary of answers below:Usually, you can Ctrl-z to put the process to sleep, and then do "kill -9 process-pid", where you find the process's pid with 'ps' and other tools.On Bash (and possibly other shells) you can do "kill -9 %1" (or '%N' in general) which is easier. If Ctrl-z doesn't work, you'll have to open another terminal and kill from there.

General :: Kill Process Hogging Tcp Port?

Feb 25, 2010

I just bought an SSL cert and installed on my Apache server. When I restarted something went wrong so I had to change some config stuff and when I tried to restart apache for the second time I got this:

$ sudo apache2ctl start
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Problem is that apache isn't running. For some reason there is something hogging my tcp 80 port, preventing apache from starting properly. How do I fix this? Is there a way to "free" a port?
