I was reading the "post a screen shot" thread the other day and thought yeah that monitoring thing "gkrellm" looks like the thing to see what the system is doing.
So I install gkrellm and manage to get it looking OK, and have go it set to look at CPU, Proc, hda and ppp0.
Most of the little graph's are self explanitory, but under "Proc" it tells me that I have XXX number of procs, and then it tells me that there are 2 or sometimes 3 users.
How do I identify the users, because as far as I am aware I have only got my account and the root account set up (I am the only person who uses my pc under linux) and a while ago I started this thread
, and while some of the answers about the "curious message" reassured me, now it appears that gkrellm says that there might be someone/something looking like another user, I am once again concerned/curious.
Unfortunately, until I can work out how to configure a fire wall, I have to re-boot back into wind0w$ to make use of the one that I have there (much to my annoyance).
The "curious message" mentioned in the linked thread actually comes up when I am disconnecting via the mandrake control centre>network&internet>connection and I hit the "disconnect" (though what is more confusing is that at the moment, as far as the MCC etc connections app is concerned, I am not connected and dont have a valid connection configuration - but I boot up, log in, click opera and I'm online, I can see the connection if I "su" and "ifconfig", gkrellm see's the connection as ppp0 - so that's another ???)
p.s. I have tried to access the /var/logs/messages mentioned in the linked thread, but I get "permission denied" as me or as root.
