Description of Problem:
I had downloaded sun java j2re1.4.1.bin and was in a konsole unpacking it via ./
next thing you know the machine is locked up no mouse and no ttys period dead
So I did what anyone could do and after a power cycle.
After boot and login and startx I opened galeon it asked if I wanted to restore
session I said yes. Big mistake right back to a lockup.
So, here we go again.
Powered off after restarting I opened galeon told it this time just to give me
the bookmarks ran the j2re1.4.1.bin again in the konsole and it all unpacked
next I am back in konsole and running ls|less scrolling down then back up and a
little down again and guess what. Yep it was all locked up again.
