Can't close a program.. why? how?


Trying to run IE with wine crashed it, now I have numerous wine-preloader running in the background. I did 'killall wine-preloader' but it didn't work, I did 'kill 4159' and it didn't close that program (wine-preloader).

So now I'm pretty much just clueless on what to do, how do I close the program?????

Doesn't work.
Do I really have to reboot the computer just to close the program?

i cant really say. I use SuSE myself and i dont use wine, although i did try Fedora core recently, i found a lot of the commands i was used to didn't work.
Is the wine-preloader an X program? ie does it have a GUI? you could try xkill if it does.
sorry i cant be more help

Try killall -9 wine-preloader or kill -9 <process ID>.

killall -9 wine-preloader
or
kill -9 4159

Please be careful with the -9 flag... it won't ask questions and it doesn't allow the process time to clean up. But it will kill it.

I tried using the killall -9 and kill -9 command, neather worked, I went to runlevel 3 and then back to runlevel 5 (that would have closed X right?) and that didn't work ether.

I just want to close the program, it can't be this complicated can it?

Well it doesn't really mater though since I'm switching to Debian tomorrow..

When I write 'ps -A' I get:
