MyelinHello, What is the command to know the missing dependencies of the package?
arencinosadelire?
pengwyn219.166.34.81 is evil
exit
Dave_is_sexyok let's say, some terrible program decides to download 3,000,000 words. use all cpu and memory. how (tf) do i kill it
this is the sinlge most important ability to have. control
dutchfishMyelin, apt-cache depends?
arencinosadave_is_sexy: kill -9 <pid>
Dave_is_sexyno, i can't get a terminak
l
arencinosadave_is_sexy: why?
Dave_is_sexyi can't do anything but cut the power.
pickcoderdave_is_sexy: so why even ask?
Myelin<dutchfish> Ok. And Thanks.
Dave_is_sexybecaus eit's using 100% of ALL resources
arencinosaso, what do you want?
Dave_is_sexybecause in windows if i hammer ctrl+alt+delete, it takes 10 seconds for task manager to come up and let me kill the bad process
arencinosadave_is_sexy: please, take calm, be patient, and go to a terminal
Dave_is_sexyi want a way to handle processes which take over
no, i've done it now. by cutting the power
i know how to kill a process
zinxdave_is_sexy: sounds like it's monopolizing the hard drive
dave_is_sexy: possibly due to swapping
arencinosadave_is_sexy: what about alt+f2?
Dave_is_sexybut the os is like "oh, i'll ignore the user's input because this process is more importnat"
pickcoder(over)swapping
arencinosadave_is_sexy: I guess zinx is right
Dave_is_sexyi want to b the os's number 1 priority. it should listen to me above all
dutchfishdave_is_sexy, no, you dont, but if read about renice
arencinosadave_is_sexy: sorry, but *you* are not a process :)
Dave_is_sexyhow about i configure the escape button, to kill the most intensice process
pickcoderdave_is_sexy: if the program had any sanity it would have limited it's memory usage
itchidave_is_sexy: That will be sad, imagine in vim hehe
Dave_is_sexyno, but monitoring the keyboard input is a process. debian should always respond to key strokes
arencinosadave_is_sexy: maybe you can create an script that check for resources use
pickcoderdave_is_sexy: there are monitoring packages available
itchidave_is_sexy: That all depend of the 'state'
Dave_is_sexylinux is like.. old. it must be able to do a simple thing like prioritise
itchidave_is_sexy: It does too, see nice
dutchfishdave_is_sexy, dont try to re-invent the wheel, if dont understand the kernels innner workings, read, read, read
