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.

The midi on my Slackware 9.1 machine is not working. The sound works fine for xmms and such. I dont use artsd or any sound server.
I open kmidi to play a midi file and it says output device error, i checked the error and it needs artsd to play. I turned on artsd and the sound quality is horrible (As i have always found with artsd). So i dont like that oen bit.
I tried Kmid and it gave me an error saying it couldnt open the sequencer. I checked the error and it was actually that it couldnt open /dev/snd/seq so i changed the permissions on that, and now when i run kmid it crashes.
Timidity just wont run, and i havent found out why yet. There is no error on the command-line or anything.
I downloaded a simple midi player called "midi". It says that /dev/sequencer doesnt exist. Which an "ls -l" shows me: "rw-rw-rw- 1 root sys 14, 1 Aug 29 03:47 /dev/sequencer" which should mean it exists and can output sound.
