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 just set up a system, following the development versions of the lfs and blfs books but ever since I installed Xorg, I am getting an error-message when I start man: "Cannot open the message catalog 'man' for locale 'de_DE.iso8859-15@euro' (NLSPATH='<none>')". However, the man-pages are displayed correctly (as far as I can see).
I decided to leave things that way until I would have KDE and a webbrowser and continued with installing KDE (3.4).
KDE compiled without errors, starts up and seems to work fine - only the letters are displayed as boxes (are unreadable) in all KDE-Apps (X-Apps such as xterm work fine).
I also installed mozilla thunderbird and every time I try to run it, there is an error message "Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib"
Now all these problems somehow seem to be related to locales / languages and they came up (as far as I can see) after installing Xorg.
Unfortunately, I have no idea where to start looking for solutions so I'd greatly appreciate any hints ;-)
