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 have Suse 9.1 personal and i've installed some packages via ftp. These include desktop managers such as Gnome, blackbox , enlightenment, but i cannot add in the login menu, where i am asked for my user name and password. I've had a look around Yast, but no luck. What can i do?
This is precisley why you should never use runlevel 4 as the default.
What I would do, is this.
login to KDE.
Open a term window, and edit /etc/inittab so that your default runlevel is 3.
Login to the prompt, and type "enlightenment"
If it starts, and you get in, let us know, and we'll walk you through changing your default WM to be E.
I changed "id:5:initdefault:" to "id:3:initdefault:". I then rebooted and tried to start Gnome and Enlightenment, but messages on the command line appeared informing me that i had problems with XServer. I then typed startx and KDE started.

i fix it!!!
I started with runlevel 3. I typed in the command line "gnome", "enlightenment" , but problems ...
I remembered the "gdm" command and everything was OK. I found myself in a login manager, where i could choose the windows manager. Why can't i choose the window manager from the KDE login manager?
