[SOLVED] Konsole does not close when pressing Crtl+D / defunct bash ?

Dear all,

Since a few days, when I type exit or Crtl+D in a KDE konsole to close the bash session, konsole often does not close itself anymore automatically. I tried to close it manually using the GUI (File>Close tab), but then I have the following message:

The program '/usr/bin/bash' is in this session would not die.  Are you sure you want to kill it by force?

It seems bash is the culprit since ps reveals many [bash] <defunct> lines, probably one for each frozen konsole:

XXXXXX  2002  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        Zs   Nov26   0:00 [bash] <defunct>

XXXXXX  4559  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        Zs   Nov27   0:00 [bash] <defunct>

Any idea of what could be causing this problem?

Thanks a lot!

Aurel.

Re: [SOLVED] Konsole does not close when pressing Crtl+D / defunct bash ?

Did you make any changes to your bash configs (or konsole settings) recently?

Re: [SOLVED] Konsole does not close when pressing Crtl+D / defunct bash ?

No, nothing I'm aware of, neither for bash nor for konsole.

I can investigate further though because it's quite annoying now. Is there something I should be looking for in the config files?

You can post your .bashrc (and .bash_profile if present), so that we can take a look. Otherwise, it is like shooting in the dark.

Re: [SOLVED] Konsole does not close when pressing Crtl+D / defunct bash ?

my .bashrc:

#!/usr/bin/bash

export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bashrc
fi

if [ -f /etc/bash.bashrc ]; then
        . /etc/bash.bashrc
fi

# Environment variables
if [ -f  ${HOME}/.environment ];
then
        source ${HOME}/.environment
fi


# Path
if [ -f  ${HOME}/.path ];
then
        unset TMPPATH;
        for i in `grep -v "^#" ${HOME}/.path `;
        do
                TMPPATH=$TMPPATH:$i;
        done
        export PATH=$TMPPATH:$PATH
fi

# Alias
if [ -f  ${HOME}/.alias ];
then
        source ${HOME}/.alias
fi

ulimit -s unlimited

# Turn off system bell                                                                                                                                                                 
setterm -blength 0                                                                                                                                                                     
#xset -b         

You can notice i use 3 external files: one containing the paths I want to add to $PATH, one for aliases, and a third one for environment variables. The bash session is initialized as expected, hence I don't think it's worth posting them. Moreover, the fact the bash can't be killed and remains a zombie make me think it might not be related to config files.

My .bash_profile:

# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
        . ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

export PATH
unset USERNAME

Hmm.. the only odd thing I can notice is the ulimit setting. Try disabling it.

Also, please change the quote tags to code.

The ulimit thing has been here for ages, and I removing it does not solves the  problems.

Tags changed.

Re: [SOLVED] Konsole does not close when pressing Crtl+D / defunct bash ?

Ah, I just remembered a recent thread mentioning a similar problem. Do you by any chance use an nvidia graphics card?

Take a look here:

Yes I have a nvidia card. This really looks similar to my problem. I'll come back on this thread if I manage to find a solution.

Thanks a lot ! :-)

Problem solved: I downgraded to nvidia 325.15 which I recompiled against kernel 3.12.1-3 with abs, see here.

I think marking this thread as SOLVED gives wrong impression.

True. It's more of a workaround. What do you suggest? Just removing the "SOLVED" tag ?
