Zombie processes

When I hit ctrl esc to get the list of processes up I have a couple that have zombie in the CPU column. Does this indicate a problem or is it normal behaviour?

You mean ‘defunct’ processes? Like when you kill Yast and a y2base process stays defunct? Rebooting solves it. I would not worry about it, unless a program leaves a defunct process for each time it’s been run. That would be a bug to be reported.

A few zombies are not a problem.

Thanks. No problems then :slight_smile:

Nah, still say a head-shot works wonders rotfl! rotfl!
