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.

At my company we are running RHEL 5.5 with KDE 3.5. I recently had to re-kickstart my box and now I'm having issues with my konsole automatically closing on it's own. I never experienced this problem until I re-kickestarted and none of the other boxes are having this problem. Here's how to recreate it:
Open a konsole window. Do nothing else except for stare at the computer screen for about 20 minutes. The konsole window will magically close on its own. I've noticed that it will not close on its own if you're tailing a log or something.
My suspicion is that there's a setting somewhere within kde that I can change to fix this but I can't find anything of the like. My company will not allow me to post logs or config files online, but I can tell you that /var/log/messages shows no problems.
I've tried renaming .kde folder and reinstalling video drivers because I'm seeing some "X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3" errors in the .xsession-errors file. Neither of which resolved my issue.
I also logged in as a different user and this problem still exists. Therefore, it has to be an issue with the box and not any single user account.
Well it seems to only happen if nothing is going on in the terminal window. For example:
If I just open up terminal and cd to a directory then get side tracked and leave my desk, when I come back the window is gone.
However, if i open up a terminal and tail -f a log, or run a script that takes a long time to complete, my window will stay open with no problem.
