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.

When i use hwd to configure xorg.config is says
***glibc detected*** corrupted double-linked list : 0x080541e8 ***
/usr/bin/mkxcfg: line 293 P 2690 Aborted lahwd -a -ox -m >$LISTFILE
Your sample file is ready.
And x server says
Problem parsing the config file
Error parsing the config file
I'm not 100% sure but I believe this could be telling you that there is corrupt code in the application you're trying to run. Most likely it's not an issue with glibc. Perhaps hwd or your config files are corrupted.
Sorry for double-posting but this is hardly an issue to ask about in the Newbie section -- it would be better to put it in the Software forum. Just because someone may be a newbie doesn't mean that their question fits that category.
The thing is i configured it manually , but i'll try those updates. And reinstalling doesen't help
Well it doesent make any difference. hwd is not workin' still. So i'll just forget about hdw , and do everithing myself. It's even better , because while doing things manually u learn something. It's not like u have to run ur favorite app from console every time , but xorg.conf is something new for me
I did , but it sucked. Can u please tell me , how to make x switch my layouts ? I can only set 1 layour with XkbLayout ? Or , if not , tell me the syntax CUz i get working Us or Ru , but no Us and Ru together.
