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 managed to find udev173 buried on a harddrive on the server. So now I can proceed,
Just a note, maybe ther should be a note to save the udev you build LFS with as it took quite awhile to find the 1 I used
I have a problem that has arisen from I think from This
When I run startxfce4 the desktop starts, and when I start terminator or xterm I get UNABLE TO START /BIN?BASH. I have put the problem down to devpts not mounting at /dev/pts.
Before i started installing this it worked ok???
To temporary fix before I start xfce I run
sudo mkdir -v /dev/pts
sudo mount -vt devpts devpts /dev/pts
on reboot it's back to not working.
How do I fix this???

Ok FYI I reinstalled udev-173 which corrected /dev/pts dir problem. I then ran the udev from blfs/svn which broke udev again?? but it dose leave the gudev file which was required.
A reinstall of udev-173 which fixes /devpts dir. This then satisfise colord package.
