you should try htop as a system monitor :) command line is as minimal as you can get eh?

and elinks is a better alternative to lynx. elinks supports frames, tables and a lot more formatting than lynx does.

Considering this posts' age, I assume you've already found a solution, but in case you haven't. To add a buddy in finch:
Ctrl+o, select Options menu, select Add (a), select Buddy (b). The rest should be pretty obvious.

Big fan of Fluxbox and rxvt here.

If you need unicode support, there's always urxvt (rxvt-unicode in the repos).

I like it for the most part, but I haven't found a consistent way to copy and paste in and out of it.

Try conky instead of gkrellm. I believe it uses less resources, and you can make your own scripts.
As for your display problem. try XRandR, so you can commandline change resolution. And maybe use a script to set for you at startup.

sorry by this delayed response, but i was not at work until now.

OS. Version

Ubuntu 7.10

Kernel:
Linux melita 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Tue Feb 12 07:42:25 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

xorg-driver: intel

Now I'm using other CRT display than mine and started as I desire. Details:

My CRT Display:
Samsung SyncMaster 551v S (15")
Starts only at 800x600

Current (temporary) CRT Display:
LG 710E (17")

At work I don't have enough time to investigate this.

Thanks for your time.

Sorry, I made a mistake on my previous post.
Where it says "gnome-display-settings",
should say "gnome-display-properties"

I have a question about using fluxbox.
At work we "must" use propietary software because our employer has the licences.

Nobody stoped me when I installed Ubuntu on my desktop and use vmplayer to run our "employer's" licensed propietary sofware.

Rigth now I'm dealing with a problem and couldn't find a solution yet.

My video card is intel 915 integrated. No matter what I put on xorg.conf, gdm starts on 800x600.
After login in Gnome Desktop, the resolution changes to 1024x768 as I desire.
But... If I start a fluxbox session, the resolution does not change.
Right now I use gnome-display-settings within xterm to fix this but I need help to make 915resolution work.
I installed 915resolution, runned it thousand times but has no effect.
My xorg.conf only has 1024x768 at the unique depth of 24 bits.

hope you can give me any clue.

thanks in advance

With my wife we use MyGirls, a J2ME app which runs on our phones.
This app is amazing. I 've just installed it on our desktop.

Thanks for the advice.

Wow... thanks for pointing out Cycle :-). I was joking about writing PeriodTracker in Cocoa, but had no idea stuff like this was already out there. Awesome.
