SUMMARY: How to kill drvconfig process

Date: Fri Feb 19 1999 - 15:28:00 CST

Hello To All:

I received no response on this one. I ended up reboot the server to kill


Here is the original question:

To All Helpers:

I have Solaris 2.6 on Ultra-II system.

I was trying to run pkgadd SUNWpppk package and the process hung after
showing adding ppp....

Here is the screen capture:

Do you want to continue with the installation of <SUNWpppk> [y,n,?]y
Installing Solstice PPP Device Drivers as <SUNWpppk>

## Executing preinstall script.
## Installing part 1 of 1.
[ verifying class <none> ]
## Executing postinstall script.
adding ppp

I then found the drvconfig process is still running in the system after I
kill the telnet session.

I have tried to use kill -9 pid but it still refuses to die. Are there any
way to kill this process without rebooting the system? Does it do any harm
to the system if I force to reboot the system while it is running?

Thanks in advance for your help,
