Or with less pipes ;-) sudo kill -HUP cat /var/run/lookupd.pid

Oops, cat /var/run/lookupd.pid must be between backticks.

I've never sure whether to trust the /var/run/ directory. It should be the place to go to for all the pid files, but I'm sure in the past, I've had a process running and due to some crash (or another) the pid file wasn't right...(that doesn't sound totally correct, but it's why I tend to grab the running pid from ps).
