I need to kill a few 'vol_id' processes.
Here is the story. After a few unlucky usb drive disconnection, I have a few vol_id processes hanging aroud in my run queue (and they mess-up my server monitoring).
'ps aux' use to show them as :
#> ps aux
nobody 12583 0.0 0.0 14420 736 ? D< Nov18 0:00 /lib/udev/vol_id --export /dev/.tmp-8-0
as root I tried :
kill -kill 12583
-- or --
kill -9 12583
that didn't exactly killed the process, instead, now
'ps aux' shows this :
nobody 12583 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? D< Nov18 0:00 [vol_id]
?!? !!! WTH ???
if kill -kill won't get rid of it what will ??? (I would rather like not to reboot - this is a 24 hour buisness server...)
