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.

Decided to hope back into the gentoo seat after a slight hiatus... I went to do a emerge -u --deeo world but it says I have some packages that block this and that if i do a --pretend it will tell me what they are. So i did that and here's the printout:
emerge --pretend -u --deep world
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating world dependencies ...done!

Was wondering what I do next to fix those things... also, I need to install a different kernel, the gameing kernel, but I need it to use all of my current kernel's settings with respect to fstab and x and alsa... i'm not a super noob like I used to be so a brief overview woul help jog me int ogentoo action!
Thanks so much! The linux community rocks for support and care!
So I updated portage via emerge portage and then redid the emerge sync and apaprently that beat out the blockers... still wouldn't mind some starting points for installing a new gaming kernel that'll use my fstab/alsa/x configs for this current kernel...
