Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

-Wait too long for programs to start
(i had to click on firefox 3 times and wait for about 1 minute. 3 windows opened and had problem closing the last of them - "application not responding message")
-clicked on konqueror 3 times; nothing had opened. "ps -A" showed howeevr, that 2 konqueror processes were running. When i killed them and clicked on konqueror again, the window opened, but a little late. Giving the command in Aterm didn't work either in the beginning.
What's the problem? Thanks
Sorry for not making these clear, but i use 5.3 and i did recently compile the kernel. However, now the problem is fixed, because i changed back to the GENERIC. Why did i come up with this problem? It sounds like i commented too many modules. But in this way, my system shouldn't work at all, not just slow down.Any idea, just to be informed? Thanks
You really do need to be careful when compiling that kernel in that you don't want to comment out the WRONG modules. If you do, then yes...you will have some healthy problems. So, it would appear that it is in fact, a kernel issue. I would recommend you read the handbook section on configuring a customer kenrel. While much of it is elementary, which is why you most likley skimmed it the first time, you might find a list of required modules (as it is in the handbook) and realize you commmetned out something...such as the berkley fast file system.
"However, now the problem is fixed, because i changed back to the GENERIC."
Unless you HAVE TO.... use what they gave you.
Sorry about that..... but that problem is seen around here more than anything else. While the LInux world compiles a kernel at the drop of the hat, it's much more rare in the BSD world. If you do HAVE TO compile your kernel, don't use the shotgun approach.
How about you? FreeBSD is running much better now. Matter of fact, I have been using it pretty much non stop ever since our last little discussion. You two really helped me get going again. Feel like I never stopped using FreeBSD now.
