I installed Debian last year. I have forgotten which release. How do I tell what release I have?
Also, I loaded a shell that runs in console 7 (gnome I think). How do I disable it? When I try to run Firefox from a console it won't run. Says "Gtk-Warning **: cannot open display: I have a feeling that is because of gnome.(?)
Another question, I am used to having a simple file manager program, pctools in dos, xtree (I think it was) in Qnix. Is there a simple file manager that I can use to get a feel for where everything is without having to muck around with a shell?
