How to know which process can be stop
I want to stop a process from running but I dont know which process is suitable to be killed cause I'm afraid that if I stop the wrong process, it might make the system unstable. Any suggestion on stopping a process? Is it wise to stop a process from the /usr or /sbin directory which is runned by root?

Please say what kind of machine you have (server or desktop, laptop) and we can give you a list of services that you should keep running on your box.Windows free since 2002 | computing since 1984

cups (if you use a printer)
iptables (if you want a firewall, sometimes it will also start guarddog, shorewall or firestarter service, too)
numlock (optional, if you want to have numlock enabled by default)
Those should be running by default.Windows free since 2002 | computing since 1984

My question is - why do you want to kill processes with a signal ? I do this sometimes during code development or to kill some process that I've really messed up ... but it's only rarely needed in normal use. See 'pkill' for an interesting variant.
