<defunct> Zombie processes (still not fixed)

    I'm using Plesk 7.5.3 on Fedora Core 2 with latest kernel.

    Plesk causes zombie processes on regular bases:

    #ps aux
    psaadm   14821  0.0  0.0     0    0 ?        Z    12:25   0:00 [httpsd] <defunct>
    How can this be prevented ?

    Cleaning up the RPM databases as described on this forum elsewhere did not help.

    With regards,

    Sander van Boxtel.

    i have the same problem here, i'm running plesk 7.5.3, with redhat 3ES. My box is up2date and i'm also using the art repository. I also tried to clean up the RPM databases without any luck. The only update i didn't do is the kernel, i'm currently on the redhat 3es default. Should i try to update the kernel? I'm a bit affraid on doing so... can i simply run up2date -f kernel without any risk?
