Before I started, I rebooted my machine and logged in as root.
usermod -l newname /home/newname -m oldname to change my username.
Results in the error message
user oldname is currently used by process 4391
pkill -9 <processid>, it kills it, but there are hundreds.
pkill -u oldname,
sudo pkill -KILL -u oldname,
sudo pkill -9 -u oldname, but it doesn’t seem to do anything.
I’m out of options, what else can I do to get around this?
