How do I kill all processes that are owned by the current user but that are not associated with their current login tty.

I have to run ps before killing any processes and display the output on the screen and kill the required processes then re-run ps to display the processes left after the kill action.

Got something to add? Send me email.

It depends on how you want to do this. You could use killall -i to do it interactively, or you simply write a script that picks up the "?" processes and kills them.

Something similar to

kill `ps x --deselect T -o pid`

maybe ?

Play with

for i in `ps x --deselect T -o pid` ; do ps -p $i; done

until you see what you want.
