So, can any OSXers out there tell me what to do about this? top reports stuck processes, and they show up as Z in ‘ps’. I can’t kill them, or kill -9 them. How can I make them go away?
rbowen@wooga26 ~ % ps aux | grep Z USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TT STAT STARTED TIME COMMAND root 195 0.0 0.0 0 0 ?? Z 4:40PM 0:00.00 (netstat) rbowen 194 0.0 0.0 0 0 ?? Z 4:40PM 0:00.00 (perl)
Also, I’d kinda like to know why these processes are starting on a reboot, and getting stuck immediately after boot.
Still investigating …
