Linux Beginners SIG, October 2013, Tips & Tricks

October 8, 2013
6:00 pmto9:00 pm



This month I’m going to talk about Linux tips and tricks. For example:

– How do you find out if an application is eating all your CPU or memory?

– If you do find out, how do you kill it?

– If you don’t want to kill it, how do you set it to very low priority so it doesn’t impact more important stuff?

– How do you set up to mount one computer’s hard drive partition on a second computer over the net?

– If the communication gets broken (e.g. if one or the other gets rebooted), how do you get the connection going again?

– If your graphic screen freezes, how do you get it going again?

– If the ENTIRE system freezes up, what should you do instead of resorting to the power switch?

– If you don’t like your keyboard arrangement (for instance, if you want to use the CapsLock key or one of the Windows keys for something more useful), how do you do it?

– Etc. etc. as time permits.

See you Tuesday. Now that summer is over, there are no excused absences!
