cool thanks man...

i made a folder on desktop and it opened... then i tried to put a file or folder in it and it crashed.. so i made another folder then used detail view and created a folder and it works.. i can get into /home by typing it manually but how do i set the detail mode for every folder?

like in windows.. . "view every folder like this"

Glad your problem is getting fixed, if slowly. I'm surprised at the number of people saying "don't use KDE" or "don't use konqueror".

Both KDE and, within it, Konqueror are stable, high quality pieces of software used by hundreds of thousands, if not millions of users without major problems. For example, I've used Gnome on occasion and have nothing against it, but I happen to prefer KDE and with over a thousand hours of usage I've had few problems (mind you, I've never felt the urge to put 40,000 files in one directory like crashmeister ;-).

You may have found a bug with Konqueror/KDE in which case you could submit it to the KDE developers. All software has bugs, of course, but one of the benefits of Open Source is that you have a lot more chance of getting the ones you find fixed.

Alternatively, there may be something wrong with your underlying system. This is pretty common, especially with Linux where it often assumes you know what you're doing and lets you mess things up. Luckily, this is a short term issue. You should find that things get messed up a few times early on but almost never after that.

I don't have the urge either but if you extract all frames from your regular 90 - 120 min. movie you'll end up with about 140.000 jpg's in a directory.But then you'll also get into trouble with bash becuse it can't handle that either - except you modify the kernel
