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.

WARNING: before downloading any of these binary kernels you should know that there is NO WARRANTY, you are using them AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
If you are paranoid: yes, I am untrusted source of binary packages, these kernels should only be used for testing purposes, you are adviced not to enable networking for qemu at all.
It is better that you fetch the config and build it yourself using cross-toolkit in your distro.
These binary kernels were tested in Gentoo Linux x86_64...
I never had to deal with chrooted environment before, and there isn't lots of info out there on the net. Best result I've found so far is http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-...oted-jail.html
Actually, it covers almost entire topic, but I'm going to explain how to bind it with nginx in gentoo linux environment.
Say, you have a site example.org with some app you don't really trust in /app dir. Your own-written site scripts are executed in non-chrooted PHP environment...
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...
For my own part I made many useless creations/hacks.
One of most recent, absolutely simple and useless is a modification of libTorrent 0.12.6.0 local_id, in order it to appear in other torrent clients as "libTorrent 220.127.116.11"
Stupid, isn't it?
But for those who are interested(you really are? :DDDD), it's statically defined in makefiles, to be more specific: in "configure" and "configure.ac" files, as "PEER_NAME" and "PEER_VERSION"...
I have just lost my backup data thanks to STABLE versions of stupid GUI "xfburn".
Of course it was mainly my fault I didn't check if it was written okay or not and just put that away then removed source files from hard disk. Im now wondering what's on that DVD disc, some space looks to be non-empty but mounted disc is empty. Quest for future. Luckily, the data wasn't that way important so that's why I didn't check it, in oppose to other discs I've written that day.
