Thread: How to invoke the Linux Terminal in LINUX when a process becomes unresponsive?

  1. #1

    Default How to invoke the Linux Terminal in LINUX when a process becomes unresponsive?

    If a process becomes unresponsive in WINDOWS then we press "alt+ctrl+del" to invoke the task manager & then terminate the process.Is there any similar way to invoke the Linux Terminal so that we can end a process by the 'kill' command when it becomes unresponsive?Any help would be gladly accepted.

    Default

    You could try switch to a terminal windows (Ctrl+F1, F2, F3, etc), and the use "ps" to list processes and "kill" to kill whichever one's misbehaving.

    You could also try Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to dump you back to a shell and kill any "(X)windows" applications... better than a full reboot I guess.
