# slay foober slay: -KILL is kicking foober's butt! slay: Whoa, I have the power supreme.
slay finds and kills all
the user's processes at once, saving you the trouble of hunting them
down and killing them yourself.
slay has four modes: nice, normal, mean,
and butthead. Mean mode kills any nonprivileged user who attempts to
slay another user. Set your desired mode in
$ ps U 1007
$ ps U foober 3936 ? S 0:00 xchat 3987 ? S 0:00 /usr/lib/galeon-bin 4209 ? S 0:00 kdeinit: kio_file file /tmp/ksocket-carla/klauncherkF21rc.slave-
You can then kill one by one:
# kill 3936 # kill 3987 # kill 4209
