Exiting a shell
Have installed slackware multilib and it says that after I compile something I should exit a shell.
Do not forget to exit from your shell (and login again) after you have finished compiling your 32bit software, to get rid of the 32bit-enforcing environmental variables!
In a way I'm lost because I don't grasp the full meaning of shell, but I did some googling and it basically says it is that command prompt looking thingy.
I'm logged in as user, running KDE, have Konsole up and running TS3 on it. I opened another tab in Konsole, went "su", then compiled what I need to compile.
Now... what is understood as exiting a shell?
1. Simply using "exit" which returns me to user and then if I go "su" again everything would be... "fine"?
2. Simply using "exit" which returns me to user in Konsole, then using "exit" again to exit that tab, then remaking a tab and everything is "fine"?
3. Exiting both tabs in Konsole, "crashing" TS3 in process and rerunning Konsole?
4. Exiting both tabs in Konsole, exiting KDE, rerunning KDE
5. Exiting both tabs in Konsole, exiting KDE, using "exit" one more time to log out of the user and then relog?
