What app is this....
In Crashed_agains sig I pulled up some screen shots of his desktop and noticed this cool app running to the left showing cpu usage and such

What is that and where can i get it

gkrellm. you can find gkrellm rpms (gkrellm, plugins, themes) for your version of redhat @

Awesome Thanks!

Now i just gotta learn what all them mean lol

I also got another kind of related question

I want gkrellm to run all the time is there a way to remove it from the "Taskbar"
I like to keep as few things in the task bar as possible

right click on the top of the gkrellm window and choose configuration. click the properties tab in the General category. there's a box Do not include on a taskbar. check that and hit the ok button.

Nevermind I answered my own question - found it in the config setup

Thanks Again!

if you plan on having gkrellm open when you login, thankfully you don't really have to do anything (for kde anyway). just create a shellscript in your ~/.kde/Autostart folder. or if you're using gnome, write the script and add it to your gnome autostart programs list. it's a 3 line script:



ps -eal | grep "gkrellm" > "$file"
read line < "$file"
rm -f "$file"

for col in `echo $line`
        if [ "$i" -eq 3 ]
                kill -9 "$col"

exit 0

that kills all the gkrellm process that wasn't closed when you logged out of kde. but kde remembers you had the gkrellm process running when you last logged out and starts up a new gkrellm process.

edit: changed the script to my old script since using the killall "gkrellm" command and the gkrellm command yielded inconsistent behavior.
