Re: TUX processes WON"T DIE! : Are we running windows Danny?



Nicholas, your problem is that tux hangs on YOUR machine, and after that you
cannot stop it with the standard "tux stop"
i have experienced that in prevous version (read the 100% cpu bug) threads,
which seems to be solved now.

and as to stopping tux, the rc file simply runs

/usr/sbin/tux --stop

nothing platform specific there
