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.

But there has been a similar question, regarding a
graphics viewer for SVGA not long ago ... if I could
only remember the name of it ... basically there's some
configuration to SVGA to be done and some permissions
to be changed, but I don't recall it since I never needed
it ... works fine on my box for non-root-users.
I think i've found the same thing before
I just can't remember WHERE !!!
as far as SDL or GL goes, I'll have to re-complie the d1x source files
which was hard the first time and I think I broke my Linux last time I did it (which was installing all kinds of usless/unknown things to get the complie to succeed) PLUS I don't remember where I got the d1x source from, i had forgotten to back up my Bookmarks before I re-installed Linux. . .opps
(I had found a site doing a search of a compile error I was getting during a compile of d1x and I found a whole mess of dx1.*ver*.src.tar.gz 's and had it bookmarked and forgot to back it up when I reloaded Linux). . .
