close multiple sessions


Hi, how can I close or "kill" sessions that I donīt want anymore?, Can you explain me what is the meaning of tty1, tty2, tty3,


Once more thing, for recompile the kernel, is extremely necessary to create an Ramdisk?, because i couldnīt find the kernel-version.img file

thanks for all

what are the sessions that you want to kill? each console will be a new login session, so you'd just close them to get rid of them... tty1, tty2 are the virtual consoles, accessible by pressing Ctrl+alt+[1 to 6] when in X. why do you want to mess with these? they will use up zero resources.

for recompiles no, you do not require a ramdisk in most instances. i never use them... they serve a lot of very handy and very different purposes, but unless you specifically know you need one, you probably won't. many default distro kernels include one for completeness and compatability.
