  wedged adj. 1. To be stuck, incapable of proceeding without help. This
     is different from having crashed. If the system has crashed, it has
     become totally non-functioning. If the system is wedged, it is trying to
     do something but cannot make progress; it may be capable of doing a few
     things, but not be fully operational. For example, a process may become
     wedged if it deadlocks with another (but not all instances of wedging
     are deadlocks). See also gronk, locked up, hosed, hung (wedged
     is more severe than hung). 2. Often refers to humans suffering
     misconceptions. "He's totally wedged -- he's convinced that he can
     levitate through meditation." 3. [Unix] Specifically used to describe
     the state of a TTY left in a losing state by abort of a screen-oriented
     program or one that has messed with the line discipline in some obscure
     way.
  
     There is some dispute over the origin of this term. It is usually
     thought to derive from a common description of recto-cranial inversion;
     however, it may actually have originated with older `hot-press' printing
     technology in which physical type elements were locked into type frames
     with wedges driven in by mallets. Once this had been done, no changes in
     the typesetting for that page could be made.
