Lightbulb Here you go.

Try this: ControlCenter (like start in windoze)/Applications/Monitoring/KDE System Guard. Click on the 'Process" tab and you should see all the processes that are running. Be ready, there will likely be a lot.
There are a lot of monitoring tools there to. Disk space, memory etc.

Hope this helps.



What 'stupid' question were you talking about?

edit: misspelled a word. Drat that makes me
I can't spell spit.

You can also use command line, bring up a Konsole window and type

ps -ef

This will list all running processes. You can also add to that grep to only see a process with the name your looking for it would look like this if your firewall process was called shorewall

ps -ef | grep shorewall

Talking Yep

"top" would work in command line to. It also includes other neat info. But since he was new and wanted a GUI type thing, I suggested that one. Let him get his feet wet a bit first.
Actually 'top' seems to be more accurate. I have noticed a difference in reporting memory.

Thumbs up thanks a lot

Thanks for help!
Both varietes works perfect.yea there is a lot thinks running but I'm sure not getting RAM so much as XPs on my other computer.
There will be one omre question.When I was installing Madrake,it was asking if i'd like to install Apache server too.I set it up as "yes".But i probably need to set it up,right?it won't work itself?
I'll look at Apache web page and here somewhere to find it.

Thanks again,

really Wannalearnlinux
