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 did my usual yum update this morning - and xwindows does not work. Traced the problem back to xfs. Config file looks fine, but xfs fails with a list of bad font paths, but the paths look ok. /etc/X11/fs/config file follows:
# xfs font server configuration file
# allow a max of 10 clients to connect to this font server
client-limit = 10
# when a font server reaches its limit, start up a new one
clone-self = on
# alternate font servers for clients to use
#alternate-servers = foo:7101,bar:7102
# where to look for fonts
catalogue = /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
# in 12 points, decipoints
default-point-size = 120
# 75 x 75 and 100 x 100
default-resolutions = 75,75,100,100
# use lazy loading on 16 bit fonts
deferglyphs = 16
# Log errors via syslog.
use-syslog = on
# For security, don't listen to TCP ports by default.
no-listen = tcp
#### end of config file...
My gut says there is a bug in xfs and that its just broken. Hope I'm wrong and someone has an easy solution!
