Description Hans Erickson 2005-03-17 19:20:20 EST
It would be very useful if, in addition to the aliases already 
in /root/.bashrc, the following one were added: 
alias stop='kill -STOP' 
This makes it easy to stop processes.  Especially useful is 'stop $$' when in 
a 'su' shell.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-18 00:33:28 EST
At this point, the root aliases aren't going to be expanded; they're pretty much
just historic.
Comment 2 Hans Erickson 2005-03-18 10:49:38 EST
Ah, well if a one line change in a script file is too much to ask, I guess it just re-affirms the commonly 
held belief that there is no way for outsiders to contribute to the Fedora project...
Comment 3 Hans Erickson 2005-03-18 12:27:40 EST
Sorry for the earlier flippant response.  I guess 'suspend' is a builtin bash 
command, so I should lobby the bash people to make 'stop' a similar command.  
Sorry to waste your time.
