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 use Slackware, when I shutdown and the graphics close, remains the text mode, and the last commands that I did, and the responses... I thought if could be possible the text mode running inside a terminal while the graphics running. Does it possible?
Sorry, I don't understand. Could you rephrase the question?
Sorry again, it's a shame when a guy (me) is so newbie that cannot elaborate a question! Heheh
Imagine that I can run my slackware in text mode, ok it's easy I just need don't load the X, in my case XFCE.
Now imagine that I could run the XFCE and in the terminal/console view what's happening in the slack text mode layer, while I run the X.
For example, I click the Chromium Broswer button,to open it, and when look to the terminal there's a line " /sbin/chromium'.
For these stupid tricks, top needs full-screen mode.
The user interface, through prompts and help, intentionally implies that the delay interval is limited to tenths of a second. However, you're free to set any desired delay. If you want to see Linux at his scheduling best, try a delay of .09 seconds or less.
For this experiment, under x-windows open an xterm and maximize it. Then do the following: . provide a scheduling boost and tiny delay via: nice -n -10 top -d.09 . keep sorted column highlighting Off to minimize path length . turn On reverse row highlighting for emphasis . try various sort columns (TIME/MEM work well), and normal or reverse sorts to bring the most active processes into view What you'll see is a very busy Linux doing what he's always done for you, but there was no program available to illustrate this.
Was no program but you guys help me a lot! And it is the nearest that can be made, so I'll consider this thread solved. And post any setting that make it better aiming what I imagined!
