What is procman: Procman is a process viewer/system monitor. Some of its features are: * icons for processes * ability to hide processes that are of no interest * tree view for process dependencies * ability to not show threads - could cut down on the "mozilla uses 220 MB of memory" questions ;) * nice easy to use interface - I hope, let me know if you think otherwise. Dependencies: Procman depends on libgtop version 1.0.6 or greater, and gal version 0.8.99.something and higher. Gal version 0.9.1 is suggested and packages are available at ftp.ximian.com in the pub/ximian-gnome/ directory. Or you can use Red-Carpet to get Gal. Availablity: The home-page for procman is here: http://www.personal.psu.edu/kfv101/procman Binaries for RedHat 7.x and Debian Woody are available and RedHat 6.x packages are in the making. New in 0.8: * dialog to edit the hidden process list * put cpu/mem/swap meters on faster timeout for better display * preferences dialog * new config option to not show icons. Speeds up load time a lot * new config option to show threads * Turkish translation
