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 am running fc4. I ran the yum updater in the command terminal under the fluxbox manager. When I rebooted my machine this afternoon. It booted into my fedora partition just fine it is reconzing my ethert connection. I went to choose the window manager for my session, fluxbox, and when it went to log me in my session shutdown and it gave me the following error(some of the cases and spacing might be slightly different):
/etc/x11/gdm/presesion/default:registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/x11/gdm/presesion/default:running:/usr/x11r6/bin/sessreg -a -w/var/log/wtmp -u/var/log/wtmp -u/var/run/untmp -x"/var/gdm/:0.xservers"-h""-l":0""mathalete"
There are three more lines but I didn't copy them b/c I can't just use a copy command and they had really wierd spacing and stuff. It also tells me to enter the failsafe terminal and try to fix it but I don't know what I need to do in the failsafe so i haven't tried that. I have tried to reinstall the package but a message pops up and says i already have fluxbox installed.
It allows me to run KDE like normal. Gnome boots but gives me a pop up that some features of my session will not run normally, what these features are i don't know other than my background is slightly different. How can solve this so that i can again run in fluxbox.
Thanks for your help.
