Default mprime and linux

I'm very new to linux and am having trouble getting a torture test running with mprime and Ubuntu. After downloading and extracting the files to a local folder and running mprime, I don't receive the 3 questions like the readme mentioned. I see my system monitor is running full out so I know it's kinda working but I would like it to do a torture run to test a few things compared to my windows partition.

1. Look into this thread - I am also a Linux newbie
2. I haven't noticed anything like you mention. My advice: shutdown mprime and delete all the files in the folder except mprime executable

You need to start mprime with the -d and -m options. This will give you the menu and more detailed output -- which is probably what you are looking for.
