Default ps aux

Hi people,



I am running RHEL5 and looking at the result from

'ps aux | more', I see this line

/bin/sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.0/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.0/firefox



Does this means that firefox is running?



Thanks,



Néstor

This means that the sh process calls the mozilla.sh script. However
there should be another process which is the actually binary running
itself. In my system for example:


[georgios@slartibartfast xsltmodule]$ ps aux | grep firefox | grep -v grep
georgios 26071 0.0 0.0 105580 1300 ? S 17:07 0:00 /bin/sh
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/firefox
georgios 26086 6.4 1.0 751968 86940 ? Rl 17:07 0:13
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/firefox


The latter is the actual binary running.

Why? You do not see the Firefox window?

That is the thing, the machine is my web browser
and I was just wondering why is there a firefox process
but as you said then the firefox executable is not running but
why is the mozila.sh running?

Thanks,

Default ps aux

Yes, I read it and I see:

"An alternate description is that this option causes ps
to list all processes with a terminal (tty), or to list all processes
when used together
with the x option."

Yes, I wanted to see all the process running on my system by user root.

????

Thanks

George,

I see the executable running. I missed it when I first
run the 'ps aux' command.

I see that this process is been running since march 16
Must be some process running wild.

I will kill it.

Thanks that helped!!!
