firstly, Mart, yes it's entirely my call to use moz or not. contrary to your comment however, ranting on this forum DOES get me help in the sense i get it off my chest to a bunch of people who know what i'm talking about. imagine fuming to my mother or work colleagues about it. they'd stare at me wondering if i'm half mad. also, i don't see where in the rules and regulations of this forum where it says that we are not allowed to rant. part of the idea of having a forum is to allow rants anyway.
secondly, if you re-read my post Mart, it took 3 minutes to register a double click of the mouse. so how do you figure firing up a console and then running top will take? i tried going back to the console with a ctrl+alt+F2 (and F3, F4 etc etc). even the keyboard wasn't responding. i tried pressing the numlock and caps lock keys. The lights didn't even respond.
don't think i can start top in that state. i did try even before i posted here Mart, so you can drop the condescending tone. i don't intend to waste people's time on this forum. in any case, even if i start top first, the entire screen will be blocked by a window with a titlebar that says "mozilla-bin". so no way of seeing how top is doing.
and no, i'm not running it as root.
now's my turn to take a pot shot at you. despite your comments about me ranting, you have written nothing to be of help to me.
now, crashmeister is more unassuming about me and at least took a shot in the dark. for that, i can at least thank him.
