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.

Hello people! I've been using linux for a while and this problem never occurred until today. And I've searched some solutions online and tried them out, no use at all.
The problem is:
I can't login on desktop even though I entered the right pssword. After I entered the right password, it seemed to be logging, but then it switched back to the log-in page. Like this, over and over again, just won't let it in.
My system is:
Ubuntu 9.10 karmic
It still worked normally yesterday, but this afternoon it's like this. I have no idea why. Does anyone know what's wrong? How should I solve it?
According to what I found online, I've tried to remove gdm and re-installed it; failsafeGnome; autoremove to free some space. No use, still the same.
I'd appreciate any help/ideas. Thank you in advance!
Well, I have tried to free some space by autoremove, which freed 300 MB. And I gave Ubuntu 50 GB (I have duel systems), so it should be enough, I guess?
I don't think I've edited pam.d nor installed something like oracle (no idea what it exactly is). Just to be sure, in which situation could I actually edit pam.d without any notice? I just recently edited the layout of the desktop, I guess that's it. I have used rescue mode (if it is also called failsafe?) to change the password to try logging in, no use. I could only log in under safe mode, and after finally re-enterring my desktop, there were no menu bars at all, and if I opened a file or a folder on the desktop, the windows did not contain those close buttons and such. I'm sorry that I'm a beginner, so could you explain how I could do the mount and chroot things safely? :| Thanks a lot.
