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.

Hi there. I'm having a little trouble configuring Xorg6.8.2 in BLFS-6.0.
I'm trying to build for a liveCD so I thought I'd use the
config/cf/host.def from the book and include all card drivers. I had
earlier attempted to install an nvidia driver and now I'm getting
trouble with loading this module: Also, my mouse is not being detected on /dev/input/mice
Fatal: Module nvidia not found
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
i got it working through xorgconfig rather than Xorg -configure. I used default values wherever I could, and used /dev/input/mice for the mouse.
xorg used the nv driver for generic nvidia instead of nvidia's own driver. that nvidia module is still lying about though, I'm thinking. seeing as I'm trying to build a liveCD, and that I want it to be able to work on most hardware, what would you advise me to do with the nvidia driver? Thanks for the reply too
by default xorgconfig will select the nv driver for an nvidia based card. for an nvidia card you'll have to find some way to probe for the hardware and automatically insert the nvidia module. might want to get an existing livecd ( maybe like one of the gentoo game demo cd's, IIRC they automatically loaded the nvidia driver) and split it up and find out how it does it.
