pstree - Shows the process tree for the current user.


“pstree” can be used for system administration tasks. Like, if you wish to see which process was started by what program, then this command will be useful.

Syntax: pstree [OPTIONS] [PID] [USER]


$ pstree # Shows all running processes for the current user
$ pstree 2747 # Shows the process tree for the pid specified

Another reason for the init: Id "x" respawning too fast-error

A user in the AB forum noted this solution for this problem:chmod /tmp to 1777 and reinstall xkbcomp.
So no write permissions to the /tmp and no setup file for his keyboard, probably a non-US layout. But how can it be that you have no write permissions to your /tmp file?

Autologin in Aptosid

What I really find difficult to get used to in Aptosid that you can't find easily text files in which you can change things easily: in arch you change the # for two lines *delete one and add one) in etc/inittab and you are done.
In Aptosid you have to use gdemsetup as root; go to login window preferences, tab security and check the box automatic login and choose the user.
