Re: Trying to kill a process that just won't die...


[root penguin root]# strace -p 11952
Process 11952 attached - interrupt to quit

Didn't show anything and then I had a hard time killing strace but I did do it.


[root penguin root]# gdb /bin/tar 11952

a) do an strace on it and see where it's blocked
