that is most certainly odd...why would they do that?
i can easily run sudo in a konsole and run commands such as lspci -vv,
fdisk -l, etc (or on any other CLI tool) in Knoppix - if that isn't
enough, there's always CTRL+Alt+F1 ...no?
Perhaps i'm missing it, but what is this unique 'procedure'? - and does
it apply to Kubuntu, as well as Ubuntu ?...and is this at all
'dependent' upon the Desktop Environment (Ubuntu's gtk+/GNOME),
(Kubuntu's Qt/KDE) ? (I wouldn't think so)
