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.

Iíve made a new version of Exton|Defender 64bit based on Fedora 19. I discovered yesterday (to my horror) that version 130721 (the first) had no support for Flash in Firefox, and that such assistance could not easily be installed. Fedora is restrictive with non-open source software. Flash is needed, for, among other things, if you want to use Youtube. In version 130726 I have also installed Vlc, version 2.0.7 and the necessary multimedia codecs. In order to do that, I have added extra software sources...

New system: Linux 126.96.36.199 x86_64 [amd64], nvidia-drivers 260.19.36, libx264 0.0.20110223(portage), mplayer...
I've been a VLC media player user for a long time. But some funny thing happened when I upgraded my gentoo and VLC started lagging extremely hard. I tried everything: from downgrading codec libraries to removing ~/.vlc : nothing helped. The problem was when I was trying to watch DVDs and some avi files, it shown "buffering" on every frame, and, of course, I had a hang of few seconds every time. I've decided to try mplayer, as many people told me it's teh best.
So I emerged mplayer...
