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 recently installed the newest flgrx driver (as an alternative to generic radeon driver) without any problems, but
Compiz (running in X.org/Gnome) doesn't run properly. When GL Desktop in Compiz is enabled, the title bar of all windows is disappeared and the effects don't work at all, almost hanging the PC. What should I do?
output from rpm -qa :
There are a lot of issues with vanilla compiz (and beryl for that matter) involving the proprietary drivers. While their are workarounds, compiz and beryl have been merged and many issues have been cleared up in the new form.
The result in prettier and more configurable than compiz, fewer options but more stable and understanible than beryl. Emerald seems to have lost some themes too.
You may need to deliberately purge the old compiz first though.
I installed compiz-fusion and it works perfectly on the free driver, but not on fglrx. So, until this issue is solved, I'll continue like this (using the free driver).
For the meantime, there's a temporary solution that I read somewhere, which says that you could keep both drivers, and switch between them in case you need fgrlx and not compiz-fusion. I tried that option, but every time i change my xorg.conf file to use the free driver, it reverts back to the one using the fglrx automatically during X startup. I think this could be because of the module for the fglrx driver still being loaded in the kernel and that somehow restores the xorg.conf file to use fglrx again. Any workaround for this?
