Default exe process: what is this?

George Avrunin wrote:

On two Fedora 8 systems, I've noticed a process running for which the
command is "exe". But "locate exe" didn't return anything that fits (or
at least that I recognized as fitting). And it doesn't seem to be in my
path or root's path.

For instance, ps -el gave
0 S 500 2760 2679 0 80 0 - 7874 - ? 00:01:35 exe


and the relevant part of the output of ps -ejH is
2556 2556 2556 ? 00:00:00 gdm-binary
2635 2635 2556 ? 00:00:00 gdm-binary

I also did an lsof to see what files that process had open, and a lot of
them seem to have to do with sound, e.g., things
like /usr/bin/pulseaudio, /usr/lib/libsamplerate, /usr/lib/libsndfile.so,
etc. (plus, of course, a lot of general stuff like libc, libm, libhal,
libusb,...).

So what is this exe and where is it located on the system?

Thanks,

George



if you do a 'ps -ejf' on that process id, you can see that it's
/usr/bin/pulseaudio


not sure what 'exe' means, though

It's the Pulse Audio sound server.
