So I kind of (read: did) run

skill -STOP -u <username>

on my own session... and I don't have root privileges on the machine. Short of getting the sysadmin to restore things (he's away), is there any possibility to resolve that?


Send it a continue-signal (-CONT). Or kill it completely with -15 or -9.

  • Done, thanks. I had to use a separate SSH session. – iegod Oct 6 '11 at 21:20
