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 have downloaded the 3 XFree86 Version of the ATI Driver and the Org Driver too.
The check.sh script which should determine which XFree86 Version I have, is not working. It says something about Root rights of the console despite the fact that I am loggt in as root.
Your possibly not running this script from the console
or maybe you simply dont have the console ownership.
Unable to determine XFree86 Version. Stopping now.
Despite the fact that I didn't know about the XFree86 Version, I just picked one. So I installed with the command "rpm -i fglrx_4_3_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm"
The result was:
make.sh: line 46: gcc: command not found
make.sh: line 52: [: !=: unary operator expected
/sbin/ldconfig: File /usr/X11R6/lib/FGL.renamed.libGL.so.1.2 is too small, not checked.
Well damn it.
Then I installed the Org version of ATI driver:
rpm -i fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1.i386.rpm
But it says now:
error: Failed dependencies:
fglrx_4_3_0 conflicts with fglrx_6_8_0-8.10.19-1
Damn it. How do I delete the other conflicting package?
Despite all this crap, do i use rpm the way it should be?
