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.

Here's my problem I noticed that there were updates and I started the process. It hung getting the headers so I stopped up2date and restarted it and it says I'm fully updated now and there is 18 updates out there. The only headers that it pulled in the /var/spool/up2date folder was alsa-lib-1.0.6-5 and alsa-lib-devel-1.0.6-5. Is there someplace else that it thinks that I updated these packages. No packages were downloaded just two headers. Any Help???
I didn't think apt or synaptic were in Fedora Core....I thought those commands were for Debian based distributions. The text update tool is called yum. Pull up a command line and make sure you are logged in as root or su to root and type: yum update.
there is apt/synaptic for RPM based distros such as Redhat/Fedora, Conectiva, Mandrake, Yoper etc. These tools were ported over from Debian by Conectiva a long time ago. YUM is another good package management tool and so is Mandrakes urpmi.
I was just checking to see if anyone had posted a problem similar to mine.
I had noticed updates available, listed at Fedora News.
I ran a yum update, which hung while reading repositories.
I did a "yum clean all," the another update - which seemed
to run properly. However, I noticed that a newer version
of bash is availabe which was not updated on my system.
Further cleanings and updates have not solved the problem.
I'm having the same problem with mine as well. Up2date says there are 20 updates available. I try using up2date and it says the system is already updated. Yum doesn't ask to download or install anything and I've got the other repositories setup. Synaptic still has the old file versions listed. Is the system just stupid?
