If you noticed the number in square brackets next to the process when you suspended it, you can also say "kill %n" where n is the number, e.g. kill %1. You then need to type fg (or bg) to continue the process, so it can die.

Use Ctrl-C to kill the process rather than suspend it. You can run it in the foreground again using "fg" and then hit Ctrl-C, or just use the "kill" command with its PID to kill it.

Good luck,
