CTRL-C Doesn't work??!! ....
Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but... I'm using Debian. I
use Debian. I know this list is full of knowledgeable individuals.
;-) Other than that, my question's a little off-topic. Pointers to
where else to ask/look would be appreciated.
I've got a system here that I've been building from scratch - just to
***learn*** how Debian / Linux works from the ground up (right from
building my own boot disk - initrd, etc.). I've got everything working
great; however.... Hitting CTRL-C does not kill a running process.
The only clue I've got is that, sometimes, I get a message "Job Control
Disabled" when starting a shell. Seeing as CTRL-C is a "form" of job
control, I'm thinking this might be related. I'm using BASH as the
Any ideas would be ***greatly*** appreciated.
i.e. What manages Job Control in a Linux system? The kernel? The
shell? Init? (I've rolled my own init, btw.) And, why might Job
Control be disabled?
.... TIA for your help/comments.
