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.

As to how it went.... Steam installs perfectly but the game freezes (or so it really, really, seems) when it does one of two things. (I'm not sure which.) It's either when it uses IE to show the adverts when launching a game. Or, when, when it's updating the game.
I installed winex cvs, then cs, then steam. Everything good so far, but I cant log into steam. I get a error saying trouble connecting to steam. Go to forgot password, and has no record of my email. So then I go to make a new account and has a internal steam error.
Yeah, I got the same exact problem through Wine 20031212.
The problem is with IE 6.0, specifically rsabase.dll.
This DLL file contains the RSA encryption library used to encrypt the communications
to the Steam Server. The errors you receive are because this file is not registered.
Steps to Resolve:
1. Install IE6. (Requires a Windows license, sorry, IE is part of the Windows OS)
Get the install-ie6.run script from http://bylands.dur.ac.uk/~mh/install-ie6.run.
2. If that doesn't solve the problem, then the RunOnceEx keys aren't being processed
by wine boot. Run the command
"wine -- regsvr32.exe c:\\Windows\\System\\rsabase.dll"
without the quotes of course.
That should allow you to connect to steam, but steam crashes for me when it tries to update a game cache.
I had forgotten: when steam looked for the .html file made, it looked in the wrong place because Linux is *CASE SENSITIVE* do not forget!
Steam tries to launch CS, but it just...stops. The console displays this:
wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0033), starting debugger...

...and then goes into the debugger and does nothing...
Great, I had the same problem, whenever it tries to use the IE component... BOOM! Maybe we can get a substitue DLL for whichever has the IE plugin so that instead of trying to display and crashing, it simply does nothing...
Can I just add (From the Linux-Gamers.net Steam Article, here ), to get past the problem with Steam loading motd using IE:
6) Edit the CS configs
It seems Counter-Strike bugs out on MOTD requests. This might just be a more or less random bug with html rendering, but it's safer to just disable the motd altogether. Now change to your SteamApps directory. Normal it is
This looks great.. I'm going to try it soon. The only problem I have is that I have another game that works on 3.1 but not 3.2, the fonts are all messed up in 3.2... I haven't tried 3.2.1 yet, so I may aswell try the CVS thingy with both.
