    A zombie process doesn't react to signals because it's not really a process at all. A zombie is already dead. Therefore it cannot be killed. ;-)

    If you want too kill the parent process of zombie process then do the following:

    ps xal | grep '[z]ombie' The third field on each line is the parent pid. then use normal kill command for that.

    Thx
