View commands being executed in Xwindows


Hi,

Does anyone know if some sort of app that would display the commands being executed by Xwindows while you are doing your stuff? Like a little window. You click on a rpm and it will display rpm -ivh ......... then you delete something rm ...... etc etc etc...
Just interested to know what it is doing sometimes and something like that would be cool.

I sincerely doubt it, although you could try
tail -f /var/log/messages
which some cmds will log to.
See /var dir for other tools/logfiles
