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=


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

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
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?

General :: Script To Kill Process With Specific Character

Feb 11, 2011

I have a command that outputs as follows:

user1 18253 1 0 Feb09 ? 00:00:00 dbr UT:msmenu


I know I can grab the ones with what I want to kill (which are the ones with question marks) with:

# lostjobs | grep ?

what I need to know is how can I loop through the results of the second one and kill them by id (the second column).

General :: Kill All Idle User Processes ?

Nov 18, 2010

All the kill idle user processes scripts I've seen don't take into account that the user might have multiple sessions open. Such is the case with one of our clients. Currently, every hour or two I need to do the following:

This will get the TTY and idle time for all users.

For each idle time over a half hour, I do the following (TTY is the TTY from the previous command with a space.

I then kill those processes.

There must be a way to do this automatically in a bash or perl script. I've tried both, but can't seem to get things to work properly.

Debian :: Can't Kill Zombie Process

Feb 2, 2016

Sometimes (rarely) when I try to open VLC it wont open, but it stays in the background and takes 98-100% of one core.

The problem is that I can't kill that vlc-process.

Code: Select allkillall vlc
will NOT kill it
Code: Select allkill 31641
won't work either

top shows
Code: Select allPID       USER      PR  NI  VIRT        RES     SHR     S    %CPU   %MEM     TIME+     COMMAND
31641  xxxxxxxx   20   0   1320248   64384  39120   S   100.0         1.6     44:51.94     vlc

Is there any way to kill the vlc-process (without booting the machine)? I also tried the "killall vlc" and "kill 31641" as root with the same results.

I have Debian jessie and the only "nonofficial" repositories I have enabled are

#google chrome stable main
deb jessie-backports main

And from those I have installed only chrome, and wine-development, and I dont think those could have anything to do with this problem.

Booting the machine does work, but I don't want to boot my machine just now. This happens about once per week
