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.

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.

Im pretty new to Linux, but still I have been able to make a digitv-box to my gf. Everything worked fine in the start. Kaffeine obeyed my Windows mediacenter remote v2 and my Amitech wireless mini keyboard. I was able to configure the remote in KDE. No probs. Untill...
I installed new graphics card: Geforce 5200 FX. I didnīt work. I installed the Nvidia restricted drivers. Still it didnīt work. My punishment for installing the restricted drivers was: irkick stopped working. No more remote controller. The wireless keyboard still works though. When I run irkick (KDE control module), it says, that "no remotes were found. You must first setup Lirc correctly".
If I type lsusb I can see both of my USB-devices (remote and keyboard). Btw. If I run the Ubuntu Live-CD, it recognizes the gforce 5200 and installs the drivers.
The computer is IBM thinkcenter. Chipset Intel 82801 EB/ER, Intel integrated display "card". The comp has 1,5 GB of ram.
What info do u need for me to post here? I really would appreciate help, so that I donīt have to install Ubuntu all over again.
So the problem is: irckick not working and the Nvidia gforce 5200 FX not working. Thanks for reading.
Im using Ubuntu 7.10.
