How I set up my computer
I use the latest version of SUSE. I do the following changes for my personal convenience:
- Forward X11 (see http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Using_SSH#Forwarding_X11)
- remove bouncing cursor (kcontrol->Appearance & Themes->Launch Feedback->Busy Cursor|No Busy Cursor)
- add device icons to the desktop (kcontrol->desktop->behavior->device icons->show device icons)
- remove spell checking from kmail
What I always wanted to say
I log in as root. Yes, really. Everyone was warning me so intensely when I started with Linux in 2000, I decided I just had to try. Now, after 5 years, I have never regret it. It is just more easy to live without a split personality. I still do not see one single reason to change this. I check that
- /opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc does not contain AllowRootLogin=false.
- For KDE 4: /usr/local/share/config/kdm/kdmrc must not contain AllowRootLogin=false.
- With Ubuntu and gnome, it is /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf, AllowRoot. Now I can access /root on my bootable USB disk!
What I always wanted to know
- how do I find out if I am using OSS or alsa?
- how do I find out how many heap and stack memory is consumed by a specific application?
