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.

My centos 5.6 machine comes with GIMP 2.2 that does not have 'Select Foreground Tool' . Can you please let me know how can I upgrade my GIMP to newer versions to make use of more advanced built-in tools?
I upgraded from centos 5.6 to centos 6.0 to have all of the new
featues on GIMP at hand. I selected Desktop when installing. But I
don't see it under Applications -> Graphics as I had it under my
previous centos 5.6 . Can you please let me know why?
The installation process is quite the same in CentOS 5.6 and CentOS 6.0, except that the Add/Remove Software application has been moved to the System -> Administration menu. From the command line, you can try (as root):
The rpm cmd does NOT take care of dependencies; yum does (and is also called by the GUI tool).
As you have seen, there ARE dependencies; in fact there nearly always is... http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-2531

#yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c6-media install gimp
But it is unsuccessful my case . Can you please let me know how to modify it to be successful?
