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 get dumped to the command line when booting grafpup 2.00 in a frugal install. "xwin" gets x up and running ok. The last lines before it stops are:
Patch mode 38 to resolution 1280x800 complete
-sh: /etc/profile: line 184: syntax error near unexpected token 'fi'
-sh: /etc/profile: line 184:' fi'
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
Well, i've scrapped the frugal install after it failed with 3 different save files. each time it starts off ok but my the time I have added some settings and a couple of applications, e.g. open office, it all goes wrong again.
I have reinstalled as a type 2 which was fine after I corrected the resolution. Set up the wifi, added the open office dotpup and rebooted. No X . X starts and then exits and I cannot restart it by running xorgwizard/xwin. It just dumps me back to the command line. I have been running puppy and grafpup on this machine for 6 months now and never had this problem before.
Edit - the patch Nathan has just released seems to have fixed this.(See the grafpup news page)

That line should only ever be active during the very first boot of the live cd, before a save file has been created. Otherwise the login manager is supposed to be started from /etc/inittab. I'm not sure why it would have remained uncommented in your case, but thingsshould get back to normal if you comment it out.
I definitely get the error Mike described, running as root with a frugal install, unless I uncomment that line, so I don't know what's going on. I'll have a look at /etc/inittab.
No - I am lost - it clearly has nothing to do with /etc/inittab, and whatever script comments out line 183 should actually comment out that whole if statement. Right? It seems right anyway. Can we please have a fix for whatever script does this please? (I intend to remaster with a whole bunch of fixes and some additional stuff)
BTW could it have something to do with the fact that I never boot from a live cd, I just do a manual frugal install? - I wouldn't have thought that would affect it though.
