Re: can I list just the directories, executables?
It might have been a fluke, so far I have not been able to get it
to work again. And ctrl-alt-del said it would shut down the system
but then I got several messages saying PID (blah) appears to be hung.
and then the system locked tight, had to power it off.
I will keep an eye on it tho, and do some testing, and if I can
get it to repeat I will file a bug report about it.
