How do I kill kapcid in suse 9.3 pro


Hi as a " complete " n00bie to linux please detail in as layman terms as you can == cheers ==

I loaded suse linux 9.3 pro and it is running like a dog,

The process table has a process " kapcid " running at 90% to 96%

when I try to kill it, I get the error I do not have the permissions to kill this process.

All and any help is gratefully appreciated

I'm not sure what kapcid does, so I hesitate to tell you how to kill it. You should probably figure that out first...
as root you can kill any process using kill PID is this failing? You can get the PID with
Code:
ps -ax |grep kapcid
this PID is in the first column.

Cheers uopjohnson,

The PID is 19,

but when type " kill 19 " at a # and then refresh the process table it is still there.

Ok well...
The reason it keeps popping up is because another process is starting it. We need to figure out what the parent process is and shut it down.

edit: Removed some bad info here.

kapcid is probably part of the power management system on your computer. Is this on a laptop?
What distro are you running?
