task management...
 
I was just wondering what the madrake equivilent of the task manager is and how to use it. I have been having problems with some unruly programs, and I have had to reboot every time... There has to be some way to kill them!

The best equivalent is the Terminal.

Do a search in your documentation or online for the commands kill and killall.

In KDE press ctrl+esc and you'll get a GUI task manager. Its also in the menus under System->Monitoring or something.

There are also plenty of terminal programs (top, kill, killall, pkill, ps) if you prefer the command line.

Thanks for that tkedwards. I never realized that was there and I have been using Linux for over 6 months. A very handy way indeed to find PID numbers as well.

Hey thanks! That helps a lot! I think I am pretty close to gettting the gui down in linux. All I need to do now is learn all the unix code so I can effectively use the console and I am set!
