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.

I just got my system back up and running with FC3 again. Not sure I really want to chance it on FC4T1 again, but
who knows, perhaps I'll get bored and give it a shot. I would like to see the new version of Gnome!!!
gulo - if you are going to try and use test versions you should set up a separate partition for that os so you can dual boot it. . . that way you don't have to depend on it :-p
i did notice that gdm_binary was taking up as much as 80% of my cpu at times. but it pretty much is running fine and I have not update gdm yet. .. I am doing the development tree in sections so if anythign craps out I have a better idea of what is causing it.
Welp, GDM no longer takes 80% of my cpu up at any given time and its running great, after I updated the kernel I think it detected my sound (either way after one of the 400 updates sound works) although not flawlessly. FC4 seems to be looking pretty good at this point from where I am standing, some quirkes here and there.
From what I understand fedora will never actually support Divx nor MP3 support straight out of the box. But I thought I would ask the question anyways ;P
So.. is fedora core4 going to support them with out any updates or installs?
So I think you get sorta partial divx support. . whatever the players default installations can support cause I played a COUPLE divx files but most would not. . . . def. no mp3 support (been that way since RH9 I think) But its real easy setup a freshrpms repo or a livna repo and do yum install divx4linux xmms-mp3
I installed xmms-mp3 from the FC3 ppc livna repository and it worked on FC4. . .
I got the same problem with a huge cpu occupation with syslogd and gdm.
My solution was first, on the login screen, choose a terminal fail safe.
edit the /etc/initab and change the 5 to 3.
This disable X to be launched at the system startup.
i had to Údit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to had a correct resolution, using the defaults i.e "800x600" "640x480" i did not manage to see the 2 launch panels.
secondly, i tried an update though up2date , i got an error.
i managed to update my system using yum: "yum update"
but this time i got dependencies problems with libFlac libOgg etc. i went around this by first,
update yum: "yum install yum"
then i removed flac: "yum remove flac"
Then i managed to update my system, after all i installed back flac.
