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'm new to Linux and desperately need some help. I have a Samsung NP355E7C with Windows 8 OS. I have to use Hiltux for work but each time you boot into Hiltux there's no audio playback.I pugged in earphones still nothing. Please advise me on what to do.Newbie Style please.
It does help if you tell us which version of Linux you're using! Each can have different tools and different problems.
Look in the menu for a configuration centre, or sound control tool. Then check that the sound is actually enabled: sometimes the volume has been set to zero.
Are these normal speakers/earphones or USB ones? If you use USB or Bluetooth sound devices, then Linux need to be told to use them rather than the built-in sound. In that case, the usual tool is pavucontrol. To run it, open a terminal emulator (in your menu) and just type that command. If it's not there, go to the package manager and ask it to install pavucontrol.
If this doesn't help, come back. We can't guarantee a job with Hilton, but we should be able to get Hiltux working.
This command list all modules of kernel. You can compare hardware with modules running.
The hardware name is seemed to kernel module's name.
If there are module names running, you can open mixer software:
root> aumix (terminal), xaumix y kmix (X).
With this commands, you can mute/unmuted the mixer, and configure it (channels, line-in, microphone, etc)
