LXDE: four distributions compared

Posted 08-31-2011 at 10:30 AM by caieng

What is the purpose of LXDE?

In my opinion, LXDE is intended as a light desktop environment, by which one means, an operating system requiring fewer resources, than are required by more typical environments: KDE and Gnome.

To know the culprit line that caused panic, decode the address to line as follows:
EIP wud luk like...
Code:
EIP: [] ip_check+0x45a/0x21a [ip_tables] SS:ESP 0049:c098281a
