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 finally discovered synaptic and am very excited to have minimized my dependency hell problems. Now I am finding that my repositories don't always have what I am looking for, or at least not the latest versions. I am currently using the freshrpms.net repositories, and recently found dag, but I would like to use pbone and rpmseek too. Does anyone know what the URI, Distribution, and Section(s) fields should be for these repositories. I've been googling in search of them (and others) without any luck.
I am in search of gimp-2.0 for fedora, which I have found, but without a repository for apt-get I get a long list of dependencies when I try to install it. rrrrrrr!!!!!
Distribution: CentOS, Ubuntu, Mac OSX, Amazon AMI Linux
Did you get this yum.conf file from fedorafaq.com, I used it but it still doesn't get what I need, neither does the one that I have. My friend gave me one, and i could get everything, because he had some good repositories in it.
I am trying to locate him!
Can you get Xine from the synaptic you have, and other mp3 codecs?
I'm afraid you've stumbled across a fundamental flaw in the system. Short of compiling it yourself or trying your luck with an FC2 package you cannot install the Gimp2.
Your only options are to either:
a) Upgrade to FC2 at which point you can get packages again. Be warned - fC3 is coming out soon and then you'll have to upgrade again
b) Compile it from source yourself
c) Install gimp-1.3 package which is a late beta of what became gimp2. It should be close enough.
Obviously (c) is not a general solution, it only works for gimp2 in fedora core 1.
