I want an easy way in linux to kill all my current processes.
The problem with
kill -9 -1 is that it also kills the current terminal. Is there an easy way to kill everything except the current terminal?
This kills all processes except the ones associated with the current terminal:
But just want to say don't use -9 as a knee jerk mechanism as it should be used as a last resort. It can't be caught by the process and doesn't let a process cleanup its resources.
Try maybe kill -15 instead to start.
