[NTG-context] lots of luatex process/instances (ps xa| grep lua / top -----sort by memory)

2009-05-10 Thread Amaël Broustet
Dear context users, at first a lot of warm thanks for help and comments on using t-simpleslides. On a different matter, I now have the following problem : I do a lot of testing trying compiling my slides (using the following command : context essai.tex). Sometimes, I get errors and an interactive

Sometimes, I get errors and an interactive prompt that I kill with either ctrl+C or ctrl+Z (at random). You shouldn't do that. Type 'x' at the error prompt, it makes (Lua)TeX terminate. Ctrl+C sometimes isn't enough to kill LuaTeX, though I have no idea why;

I've also noticed something along those lines. I've also found that CTRL+Z/C doesn't really exit the program --- there are stale processes still lying around. What I described is general, it tends to happen across big documents. Is this a known problem? � Broustet wrote: Dear context

On a small example : ctrl+C works, ctrl+Z leaves unkillable (either -15 or -1) luatex and texlua process. kill -9 leaves zombies. killing the parent shell clean everything. Le dimanche 10 mai 2009 à 19:25 +0100, Mohamed Bana a écrit : I've also noticed something along those lines. I've also

On a small example : ctrl+C works, ctrl+Z leaves unkillable (either -15 or -1) luatex and texlua process. Again, that's because Ctrl+Z, in a normal Unix environment, only suspends the process, it never kills it. Try kill -19 first (SIGCONT), then kill -15 or -1. You can try the following

2009/5/10, Amaël Broustet cont...@amael.net: killall luatex and kill -15 PID does nothing. Don't use killall. Linux != Unix. Best Martin ___ If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry
