Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to run a command (to open a Konsole session telnetted to multiple devices) at a higher priority. what is happening is every time I run the command the Konsole opens but only opens a few (there are 9 total that I need) of the sessions and gives a message "interrupted system call". well I don't know quite how to fix this or what the error means but I figured I would try to run the /usr/bin/konsole (in fedora 10) at a higher priority. well my book says that a lower nice value means a higher priority for the process. so in other words if I am getting it, the command "nice -n -10 /bin/Konsole" should run konsole at a higher priority which is what I want to try. perhaps it is doing that I don't know but when I then run ps axl and look at the 5th and 6th columns (PRI and NI) I see the following
you can see my pri value is now 10 and my ni is -10. however when I don't run the command starting with nice -n -10 the columns read 20 (pri) and 0 (ni). so shouldn't nice -n -10 command, make the pri value go above 20 (higher) not down to 10 (lower).
so what is actually happening here? I have read on the internet and in my book that starting a command with a nice -n -x (negative value up to -20) should raise the priority of the process and that I should see the priority (pri in the ps command output) up and not down.
help me out please. oh and the command being run is from within gns3 a cisco emulator so I am trying to open multiple telnet session in tabs using /bin/konsole. the complete command run from within the gns3 app is...
oh also in my fedora 10 I am running the gnome desktop but I know the Konsole is a kd3 app..I don't know if that would be messing things up a bit as well, just thought I'd ask. I would love to simply use the gnome-terminal to open multiple tabs but I am not that advanced would need someone to show me the appropriate commands
