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.

I recently discovered cwm and fell head over heels for it. Then later I discovered tmux, and suddenly my desktop goals are starting to look ultimately like they're possible. My days of running fluxbox are long gone (though running konsole and scripting it were pretty fun...I can't justify installing KDE for one application =\ ).
Here's my dream: I want a simple, efficient, keyboard-oriented desktop that doesn't take up much resources and allows me to get work done. The work I...
First time I installed Opensuse Edulife, my computer froze. So, I guess, my computer can not be installed Opensuse Edulife now. May be, because my graphic card, or other hardware. Then I try installing Edulife in another day. I think, I must type "nomodeset" in boot option when first time installing Edulife. It is same with Opensuse 11.4, when I want to run it. The difference, installing Opensuse 11.4 is without freeze. Then, when I want to run Opensuse 11.4, I must type "nomodeset"...
Few days ago I've built a new gentoo environment: my previous system became a junkyard, so I ended up rebuilding it. First thing I've tested, is how it runs HD.
To mention entire list of updates:
Old system: Linux 188.8.131.52 x86_64 [amd64], nvidia-drivers 260.19.29, libx264 0.0.20101029(portage), mplayer 1.0_rc4_p20100612(--version gives SVN-r30554-4.4.3), vlc 1.1.4.
New system: Linux 184.108.40.206 x86_64 [amd64], nvidia-drivers 260.19.36, libx264 0.0.20110223(portage), mplayer...
For almost 1+ year I've considered XFCE to be stable and well-optimized. And, well, it was. As minimalist, I have to note, there were two bugs annoyed me from time to time. The first one seems to appeared in 4.6.1 or 2, it was an issue with logging you out anyway once you pressed "Exit", even if you click "Cancel" later on.
The second one was not in xfce itself but in Thunar file manager, when copying address from bar, it copies as file:/// URL + newline, which gave me...
I want to explore kmix in opensuse 11.4. Cause, when I want to run kmix, there is respond to load kmix. Signed, cursor is changed with kmix symbol and there is kmix in taskbar. But, after that, nothing happen with kmix. I mean, kmix doesn't appear. Evidently, there is kmix icon in right of taskbar.
