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.

In my ongoing saga of trying to fix a bug after installing KDE 3.5 and the 2.6.14 kernel, I have finally been able to install the source RPM for kbd-1.12-12.1. However, this did not fix the problem. I still cannot resolve the setfont: error at boot or install any graphical login photos. I also cannot restart x after text mode. I can get X fine at boot, but I still get the setfont errors. I know libc.so.6 is installed and I have been told that GLIBC_2.4 is still in development.
Anyone know any solutions? Any googling for this file just leads me to glibc-2.3.93, not the file I need.
run this... "strings /lib/libc.so.6 | grep GLIB" if you don't get a match for GLIBC_2.4 but plenty of results for GLIBC_2.3 etc... then you need to upgrade glibc, and as you mentioned above, this isn't in updates on FC4 yet.
Thank you...you are correct. There is no GLIBC_2.4 for fedora that is available. Guess I will just have to put up with this problem until FC5 comes out probably in March. Hopefully the upgrade will have a fix for this. It really isn't that big of a deal, anyway. I am prevented from putting login photos for anyone. Other than that, most of the system works pretty well. I guess will give up on this one.
Thanks for your answers.
By the way, the string search and grepping did reveal only 2.3..
