This is determined by the 'ctrlaltdel' line in /etc/inittab(p.s. maybe I should say this was in Debian. Not sure if it'll fly in the other flavors.)

If Ctrl+C does not work, try Ctrl+\, it kills the current process harder. In Linux-speak it sends it a SIGQUIT signal, which it is less likely to ignore, instead of a SIGINT signal.AndrewS wrote:Ctrl + C is usually a good betRobert_M wrote:I got stuck in something & couldn't remember how to get out
No, Ctrl+Z (SIGTSTP) stops/suspends the foreground process group without killing it. This allows you to type other commands and then continue the stopped job with "fg". Or, if it does not need to read input from the terminal then you can continue it in the background with "bg".sharpapotheosis wrote:CTRL + z often works also, though I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that it kills the process without killing any processes started by the original process.
