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 trying run xonotic after a successful installation and compilation. But it prompt me a warning message saying the following:
Client darkplaces/darkplaces-sdl not found, aborting
I have downloaded it from the net (darkplaces-sdl-client-20041017-alt0.cvs.i586.rpm file). As I have Ubuntu OS, I tried install with an 'alien' command but finally failed. The command said that the darkplaces package I downloaded is for 32bits environments.
Where I can find this package for my environments??
I hope you understand me, I'm not an english speaker
Hi Neoff and Welcome to LQ!
You can look in the same place you found darkplaces-sdl-client-20041017-alt0.cvs.i586.rpm and see if they have a 64bit version on their site. I notice that Debian has a darkplaces package. Here's the description:
Description: Game engine for Quake and similar 3D first person shooter games
DarkPlaces is a graphically-intensive engine for Quake and related games, with improved visual
effects and lighting and many features for mods. It can be used to play various games based on the
Quake engine, such as Nexuiz, OpenQuartz, and Quake itself.
Is that what you're looking for?
Another thing. Your package 20041017-alt0.cvs.i586 dates from 2004 and that's seven years ago! It's very unlikely to work now. Maybe you'll need to explain better what exactly you are trying to do.
I now checked the xonotic website. You can download from there. Have you tried that? Is it only source code or do they have binaries?
I found the package in http://www.rpmseek.com/ searching by name. I know the package i downloaded is very old but i hope once installed I can update it with the usually commands.
In this site other darkplaces (is not the SDL, are other) with a major version and for 64bits distributions, but the links to the different mirrors are all broken. I can't download it.
I have checked the xonotic webpage but i can't find the download you said. Where you found it?
Thanks for your fast response,
I found the download here: http://www.xonotic.org/download/
The file seems to contain executable binaries so there's no need to compile unless you really want to do that. The file name is: xonotic-0.5.0.zip
If this solves your problem please mark this thread as [SOLVED]
Finally I can run the game correctly. I had to wait until the night to download the file because my connection is not really fast, but this afternoon, i have tried it again. As you said, downloading again the package and going again to /usr/games/Xonotic/xonotic/ to compile, the game can be started OK.
