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 was trying out to build a livecd for fedora (so far tries have been
Fed 17 and Fed 19), according to the scheme
Fedora 17 LiveCD-Creator Thumbdrive Step-by-step
The reason for doing so is that I want to add some home made programs
and show them to others without requiring them to install all kinds of
The process runs, however, booting the newly created livecd (either
as file using qemu, or through a usb stick) is not successful:
booting will start, and after selecting Fedora to run screen
will be (and remain) black
In the meantime I have been busy creating a livecd, using predefined (and slightly modified) kickstart files
Fedora appears, that is the good news. The bad news is that my locally generated package that I included
in the modifies kickstart (and for which I have create a local repo) does appear on the list of installed
packages (when running the livecd on qemu), but the program, the package is supposed to install
cannot be found.
Thanks. I just made a mistake in the "files" section of the rpm spec. Just a little reading helped
I am now in a position that I have created a livecd with my application as part of it using the predefined kick starts.
It runs on qemu-kvm, and it runs from an usb stick. All I have to do now is adapt the livecd a little (e.g. removing the screens
for choosing between logging in and installing the software on a hard disk).
