"TOP" Command keeps going to "stopped" state
I'm not a Linux expert, and maybe there is an easy solution that I'm missing here, but for some reason the "TOP" command all of a sudden keeps going into the stopped state after one to three iterations. I key in "fg" and it gives me a few more iterations and then goes into stopped state again. The only odd thing that's happened recently is that the power cord got pulled on the machine, so it didn't shutdown correctly. I've tried creating a different userid just in case something in my normal userid profile got corrupted during the power off, but the same thing happens. I don't know where the underlying files are for this command, or if there is a way to uninstall and reinstall it without reinstalling the O/S. The machine is running Ubuntu server 8.04, Webmin, and VMWare Server 2.0.
