Re: ps aux

Hi people,

I am running RHEL5 and looking at the result from

'ps aux | more',  I see this line

/bin/sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.0/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.0/firefox

Does this means that firefox is running?



This means that the sh process calls the mozilla.sh script. However there should be another process which is the actually binary running itself. In my system for example:

[georgios slartibartfast xsltmodule]$ ps aux | grep firefox | grep -v grep
georgios 26071 0.0 0.0 105580 1300 ? S 17:07 0:00 /bin/sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/firefox georgios 26086 6.4 1.0 751968 86940 ? Rl 17:07 0:13 /usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/firefox

The latter is the actual binary running.

Why? You do not see the Firefox window?
