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.

but it hangs and get blocked before finishing the booting
process... so how can i check the computer file system in
i have discovered that the autopartition utility fix the swap
memory to 1G.. but on the end it uses a strange "maximum
swap partition" (or alike), which is fixed to 2G. so i have
reinstalled FC but now lowering a bit this number to see
what´s up.. tell you then
well... i think you gotto boot-up with a floppy or your install-cd if possible....
maybe FC2 has a rescue-mode or somthing like that....( you should be able to get to a CLI and mount your HD )
anyway, what i wrote before is just to
find a clue of what's wrong, ( the next line after 'swapon -a ' orso ).
( for the fedora-prob. )
Think you can use a live-cd ( i've got the " Slax " version ). It boots from cd
and doesn't use a HD. The partitions are just mounted ro in the /mnt dir.
To make any changes on them, you should remount them r/w
Originally posted by egag i dunno FC2 but i think you should look in the /etc/rc.d/rc.S file to see what's the next line after
something like '' swapon -a '' ( after that it hangs........)
I have FC2 kernels, 1.358 and 1.521. 1.358 boots fine, however I'm having the same problem with 1.521. I added in echo statements all around rc.sysinit, and found out that it executes to completion, and then the system hangs.
Does anyone know what happens next?
in boot time after seeing "Enabling swap space [ok]", the system hangs. I also notice this happens more frequently when I boot without being plugged into power, or have new devices connected. Seems there is a bug in 521 kernel boot area. Anybody?
After almost 3 weeks struggle w/ Fedora w/ numerous problems (missinng components in the distro, system locking up, booting problem, performance, ...), I finally reached the conclusion like many, Fedora is just a way RH wants other people test the ground for them, support is their last priority. My personal experience w/ Suse couldn't be happier, just one night's install and configure, I got everything running smoothly. Performance is also much better. On a scale of 10, I give Suse an 8, and Fedora, a 2.
