   I've come to an interesting problem.  I can't run any programs,
I my system is still running, 15 days.  This is what I did:
  cp /bin/ls ~/bin; gzip ~/bin/ls
  ---nothing happens---
  ---nothing happens, but I can't switch screens now---
  So I login from another machine,
  ps -x
  kill <pid>
  ---nothing happens---
  ---nothing happens, and I can't use the terminal anymore--

  So I login again via telnet
  kill -9 <pid>

  It works, both unless terminal are recovered.

  now I can't run any new programs. apache is still running, I've
  still got irc, but no new processes.  Is there anything I can do
  to get the exec server working again without rebooting?
