In windows when your system tends to freeze up or a program stops working you can use the function control, alt, delete to force close it out. Is there anything similar for the puppy tahr 32 bit? Or for linux programs in general?

Hi, SolusUmbra.

You can try some of these, here:-

Usually, though, in Pup, you can left click on the symbol to the very far left of the app's window title bar, and then click on 'Kill'. That pretty much always sorts it for me.

You need to be using Tahrpup 6.0.5 or 6.0.6 the latest versions.

The better question is. What are you specifically doing when it freezes?
You do what?
You see what?

How much ram is in the computer?

ctrl+alt+backspace
will shutdown X server (the Desktop) and go to a prompt.
That usually shuts down the window manager and all programs.
xwin (typed at the prompt) will restart back to desktop.

ctrl+alt+del
When it works, will trigger a controlled shutdown.
(This is not enabled in all Puppies).

Some Puppies the ctrl+alt+backspace is used to get to the prompt, where other options can be entered.
