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.

Hey guys... I Just compiled XDirectFB into my system... but I can't get it to work. Are there any configuration files or anything?? Do you need a good video card? I have a somewhat old 500 Mhz compaq presario... but i don't really know what card it is... it think 16 mb of mem though. Will that be ok you think?
Originally posted by NSKL Ok, i got some goodies for ya
The program that displays logs is called root-tail (search google, its a really old program so if you dont find it, i'll e-mail it to you) and you can tell it to check as many log files as you want, and optionally display each log file in different color, (in my example /var/log/messages are green,n syslog is black and /var/log/secure in red)
Theres also many other loggers like the one i use. I hear ppl like colortail but i prefer root-tail. You start it from your .xinitrc and tell it what geometry it should have and it will sit there and be like the part of the background, you cant focus it, select it, etc..
I have about ten programs starting from .xinitrc so yeah, flux takes about 3-5 seconds to start on my athlon 1600+ i think its acceptable. And then Icons look cool
Thanks for the info, I got root-tail running, it was a available on www.freshmeat.net. Now I am going to attempt flux with ROX icons before I post another shot.

MasterC: You need this line:
exec rox -p --pinboard=PIN &
in your .xinitrc and then you can drag icons from the Rox filer to the desktop. You also need ROX base package and Rox filer installed, if i recall well.
I am glad you like my screenshot!
What about menu, hehehe....no I just open it to show......
But I have found another way out, I have downloaded the plugin for gkrellm - GkrellmLaunch, and put there all programs I usually use
