    Hi all.

    I am a newish Linux user, meaning I have used Linux before but have so little experience that I might as well pretend I know nothing because I pretty much.. know nothing.

    Anyhow, as I indicated, I know nothing about where things are normally put in a Linux file system, so in order to learn about the file system I was trying to use the grep command tonight to find, for example, the name of a bookmark I put into the browser in order to find out where the bookmarks are kept in the file system.

    However, when I run the following command:

    grep -r -H "string" /

    The Pre always reboots.

    Is it a bad thing to grep the root directory? What am I doing wrong here?

    Related: is there an article somewhere yet that explains the anatomy of the Pre file system, such as what kinds of things are inside of each directory?

    spend some time looking around the site where a lot of that information has been posted already.

    and yes, grepping the root is a bad idea.

    and the built in apps are under /usr/palm/applications. Go look there.
