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.

Hy there. As a newbie i have have some difficultys installing my Ati Radeon 9250 driver on SUSE 10.1. (need them to activate my 3D desktop - cube - with compiz).
I haved downloaded the latest version of the driver for my Radeon 9250 from the ATI website --> Drivers & Software --> Linux x86_64 --> Radeon --> Radeon 9250 (driver version 8.28.8), saved it a local temp folder (/home/m00nc0w/temp) and do the followings under 'root':
# init 3
# cd /home/m00nc0w/temp
# sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.28.8.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE101-AMD64
# rpm -ihv fglrx64_6_9_0_SUSE101-8.28.8-1.x86_84.rpm
At this moment an error ocured (failed dependencies) :
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit) is needed by fglrx64_6_9_0_SUSE101-8.28.8-1.x86_84.rpm

I tryed to install these files with YAST --> Software Management but i could not find them. My PC is a Sempron 3000+, 755-A2, chipset: SIS755&964 with 64 bit support. Please help me with this. Thank you a lot!
Note: Before this I prepared kernel with the following commands (super user mode):
(i didn`t use #rpm -e #(rpm -qa | grep fglrx) command because i just installed linux and i didn`t try before to install any drivers)
do you have a 64 bit system? i'd assume not or you wouldn't have had this issue. install the standard 32 bit one instead. and you should not need to touch your kernel i nthe slightest (and didn't looking bythe instructions you gave) . Also please use a better title next time, thanks.
