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.

Hey guys, I am having a big problem with FC2. I recently installed Kernel 2.6.6, I had to in order to get my Nvidia drivers to work, I had to recompile it for 8stacks or something to that effect.
Anyway, although I can't reproduce this every time, KDE randomly hangs. It freezes so bad I have to hit the reset button and go through a disk check. This is getting on my nerves and making me think I should go to another distro, the problem doesn't seem to persist in Gnome, but I really don't like Gnome especially after the whole spatial thing. I want to use KDE, but I use it for 15 minutes or so, sometimes a few hours, and I have to hit reset.
I have the same probelm with 2.6.6 & kde, but without an nvidia card.
I have yet to try fc2 with another kernel so I don't know if it is just a problem with 2.6.6.
It only seems to hang on me when I am using the internet (via lan connection).
I don't think it is an iptables problem as the same configuration works flawlessly on a redhat9 pc.
I first thought it was when I was using mozilla, but it happens with any other type of download as well.
If you track down the problem or find a fix I'd love to hear it.
I have just done a new install of FC2 and I am using KDE. I am getting short freezes, they last about 10 secs. I can be typing away and nothing appears on the screen. If I just wait, the cursor catches up and things seem to be OK again.
The only message I am getting in messages, which may be purely coincidental is
floppy0: disk absent or changed during operation
end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0
I found out the problem happens with Gnome as well. However, it's due to my Nvidia driver for sure. I disabled it and no crashes. However, no hardware acceleration either, and I don't want to live without it, there has to be a work around!
There are no logs, the system locks out before one could be written, I believe. This is really hectic, I can't play games now. I have a major sound delay too that may or may not be related, that only happens in KDE.
I appreciate all the replies, anything else I could try?
