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 installed UT2004 demo 3334 (.run version, 275MB dowloaded).
It works, I can play online, good FPS... But there is a problem...
Suse 9.2, ATI 8500LE (official driver), Creative Audigy and 2x256MB DDR400 on ABIT NF7-S v2.0 (nForce 2).
start UT2004. Perfect! Low ping, high fps. But after a few minutes (4-5)... a strange freeze... I cannot move, I hear only scattered sounds... But only for 8-10 seconds... then I can play again...
Obviously, 4-5 minutes, and freeze again... and so on (if I play a lot, these freezes occurs more frequently).
Someone can help me? I know that my description is very generic.. but I don't understand what it could be... I have not idea...
I hope in someone that already heard about this problem...
Btw, I would undestand if the patch 3355 is a patch for the demo version or not... and, in the case, how can I install it? In the .tar.bz I found only a list of folders with some files... I copied these files in the correspondent folders in the UT2004'directory, overwriting if necessary, but after that, UT2004 didn't run...
Replacing old files, ut2004 works again...
2.4.8 (default SUSE 9.2 with all official security upgrades via Yast2).
I compiled 2.4.10 too, and set it as a choice in grub, but I never tested UT2004 on it (my 2.4.10 is not so stable, because of too many "N" ...)
I have the same problem with my nvidia 5900XT and my radeon 9600pro. It's a flaw in either the game or the patch. OR it could be the net code. I know what you are talking about, you will be playing for a bit and all the sudden stuff just almost stops and everything spins up. After a couple seconds, the game starts to go as normal. Glad to hear i'm not the only one. But i still don't have a solution. However, i just wanted to stress that the video card has nothing to do with it ( it might, i just mean the nvidia/ati issue because it happens to me on both).
It's no easy to understand.... Surely the MaxTextureUnit set to 4 was a great help, but perhaps killing artsd is another step forward.
Freezees come again, but (it seems) less frequently and shorter... Tnx.
On Rage3D discussion area, more guys say that it's due to ati driver... But here there is Phorem with the same problem and a nVidia...
I don'n know... anyway, with this tricks, UT2004 is quite playable. Tnx again
(During a freezee an enemy stole my Goliath it's NOT good )
After more minutes, long freezee come again... I'm not sure, but it could be dued to a netcode problem... or something like it.
I noticed that a moment before freezee, there is a sort of lag... And sometimes, when freezee vanishes, I am in a sort of limb, when other players are statics, my weapons don't fire (I hear the fire's noise, but I cannot see the "bullet")... I must disconnect and reconnect....
I'm confused... But the hope in a miraculous patch will never die...
