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 a Kodak DX6340 digital camera, that can record video as well as pictures. It saves the video as a .mov file, and i was wondering if it was possible to get a .mov file from my computer (ie, not created with a camera) to play on the camera?
Getting the files onto the camera isn't a problem, but when it comes to playing them all i get is "Unrecognised file format".
When i compare a .mov file my camera has created, and one i've created, they're exactly the same (as far as i can tell), same video codec (h.263), same resolution (320x240), same framerate (15.1 fps), same number of colors("millions"), same number of tracks (2), same order of tracks (first = video, second = audio), same audio codec (ulaw 2:1), same sample rate (8000Hz), both in Mono, and i even added the same annotations for the files (Original Format = "Digital Camera", and Information = "EASTMAN KODAK COMPANY KODAK DX6340 ZOOM DIGITAL CAMERA"), the filenames i'm using are the same filename format as the camera is using too.
So, even after all that, i still can't play .mov files from my computer on my camera, i must have missed something, there has to be a way to make them work, what else could be different about the files comming from my camera and the ones on my computer, and is there any way to fix it so it will work?
I can view .jpg's on my camera no problem...they don't even have to have the same name.
And as far as i know, the video length on my camera is only limited by the amount of free space on the SD card in the camera...and the test file i'm trying to put on my camera is only 13 seconds anyway
well, there's no mention of it in their faq's, so i've e-mailed them...altough considering one of the questions in their faq was "How do i transfer pictures from my computer to my camera?" and their answer was "It is not possible to transfer pictures from your computer to your camera." i get the feeling they're not gonna be very helpful
