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.

Hello everybody, I am using the FC6 on this machine for last 40 days. I did copy/cut/paste and changed permissions several times. Several times memory available reached to its max. limit, that time I made that space. But today when nI started the PC and tried to login as user, it shows warning as:
Your $home/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by the user and have 644 permisions. User's $Home directory must be owned by use and not writable by other users.
Then I logged in and changed the permissions of whole /home and /home/user as 644.But still it was showing same. Then I moved all the files to /home/user which previously I saved at /home. Now it doesn't allow me to login as user except root and before the previous warning along with previous one it shows following message:
Your home directory is listed as '/home/user' but it doesn't appear to exist. Doyou want to login with /(root) directory as your home directory.
It is unlikely anything work unless you use a failsafe session.
Now what should I do? I can't oprate bash?
Permission of /home is 755
Permission of /home/user 700 with owner and group as the username. Also the desktop files in this user home dir must be owned by the use and some of them will require execute permission.
