Re: /bin/kill : Where art thou?

Not sure which Debian version you're running, but in both potato and
slink it should be at /bin/kill according to the output of 'dpkg -L'. 

In potato, /bin/kill is in the procps package, while in slink it's in
bsdutils. In both potato and slink there is also a /usr/bin/skill, and
it's in the procps package.

for potato:
root@newdebian:~# dpkg -L procps      

for slink:
root@newdebian:~# dpkg -L bsdutils
