What is the command to kill an application that has frozen? I have a few problem avi's that keep crashing XMMS player, and each time I have to reboot the system to get rid of it.
Look up the PID of the process using ps (or use pidof) and then kill <pid>. If it still doesn't exit, kill -9 <pid> should end it. if not, post the line from ps aux corresponding to the process.
well you can type
or do ps ax
then kill the apps pid number
if the process doesn't die
killall -9 xmms
kill -9 pidnumber
or in the gui just type xkill in terminal move cursor over offending app click
Thank you, did the trick! :)
