I am currently reading/doing LPIC-1/CompTIA Linux+ Certificalation All-in-One Exam Guide by Robb H. Tracy (McGraw-Hill, 2012).

It's harder going through this book than I originally thought that it would be; hence, my reason for creating an account here.

So, OK: I'm sitting at my computer reading my textbook. When I look up, I'll occasionally see a rectangle being briefly shown with a percentage; if I move the mouse, then the rectangle will reappear and the percentage will go to 100%. If the rectangle shows up with 0%, then the screen will blank and I have to reboot.

So, OK: The below text comes from LinuxMint 15; but the problem's the same. I'm trying to look at /.profile with $ vi /.profile but what I get is a new file with that name. WTF?!
