Ok, I still consider myself a noob.. but anyways... I have a few weird files I noticed while in /root.. I do not know what they are and am curious....
This is Mandrake 10 CE.
here is the ls.
[root@localhost root]# ls -a
./ .cshrc .kde/ tmp/ .Xdefaults
../ Desktop/ .loki/ .viminfo .xsession-errors
.bash_history drakx/ .menu/ .vimrc
.bash_logout .fonts.cache-1 .qt/ .Xauthority
.bash_profile .fullcircle/ .recently-used .xauthrYlDhj
.bashrc .ICEauthority .tcshrc .xauthxPvV9n
my question is.. what exactly are the two .xauth* files?? they are files not directories... and they cannot be opened with vi or gedit etc...
