Apr 11 12:18:17 mxt root: Process did not exit cleanly, returned 255
with signal 0
I get one of these per minute. I can't seem to tweak for more verbosity.
Could someone tell me what is going on or point me to a place to
start troubleshooting this?
When the mxt process appears in ps aux or ps -ef, quickly note the PID
(suppose it's 6789) and attach to the process with strace:
strace -p 6789
I'm pretty sure mxt is Glenn's host name... so you won't find it in ps.
Something is starting a process aprox 1/min, or the process runs for aprox 1 min
before it is restarted.
Check /var/log/cron to see if there's something running there.
What's in your /etc/inittab?
Also, try ps -ef to find new processes. You may have to do this more than once.
