Before hang: david 12822 1.7 3.1 207448 23712 ? S 13:21 0:00 kwrite [tdeinit] After hang: david 12822 9.3 3.1 207912 23900 ? R 13:21 0:07 kwrite [tdeinit] david 12822 66.2 3.1 207912 23900 ? R 13:21 2:32 kwrite [tdeinit] and it just stays there. Now, how do I "use gdb to break into kwrite"? Just a the command form you want like: gdb what :) -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
