An unkillable process is almost certainly hung in a driver, and in this case I would strongly suspect it is a video driver. Can you break to KDB (or get a dump) and get a ps listing and a traceback of the hung process? That may enable someone familiar with the particular driver involved to debug it. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
