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 have installed FC6 on a Athalon PC with a nVidia Riva TNT2 video card. It has been running for over a month with little problems. yesterday I tried to Install VNC from RealVNC WEB site. Run into some dependancy problems and did not finish the install. When I reloaded the computer, I got a Xserver error all I got was a blank screen with a XServer failure. After getting the command line working, the error log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) contained the following entries:
Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.1.1-47.4.fc6
Sat Jan 27 16:29:44 2007
vncext: VNC extension running!
vncext: Listening for VNC connections on port 5900
vncext: created VNC server for screen 0
(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
I suggest you update your kernel, kernel-devel, kernel-headers to final release via command line if you have not done so already, and then new kmod-nvidia to match (assuming you have rpm.livna.org set up as a repo). These packages worked perfectly for my nvidia gforce 6800, where prior kernel/nvidia sources all had their faults.
