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.

On Enlightenment, I did find another thread that should give you help.... after about three years of hard core bash instruction! http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/184631
Hokay, now let me check on Gnome - although I just switched my default over to KDE because the Gnome applets were a pain and the weather ones refused to cooperate at all. Which ones were you trying to install?
Hey Zoey, I just checked my /usr/lib file and I found that libImlib.so.11.0.0 is already installed. Check your files and that posting from Stormbringer about the symbolic link: ln -s ln -s /usr/local/lib/libImlib2.so.1 /usr/lib/libImlib2.so.1 - If you change the syntax to the corresponding files and directories, I think you'll be fine!
Yeah, 'syntax' was probably the wrong word. What I was trying to say was that Enlightenment isn't finding libImlib.so.1 because it's looking in the wrong directory. So, what the symbolic link is doing is putting a notation in the directory that Enlightenment checks that 'links' it back to the correct directory. You'd have to do it as 'su' and change the file name to the what your version reads.
I'll check out bubblemon, xpenguins and see what I can find
I already have the little penguins that float around with ballons, etc and the only way that I have figured out to turn them off is to log out and back in again. The applet that I am trying to install is a switch of sorts that shows on the panel. It can be used to turn them off and on. It can be found here: http://xpenguins.seul.org/.
I did a Google search for Stormbringer symbolic link and it took me to a page on Linux hardware page #691. I couldn't understand very much of it, I'm afraid. I think that I need to study up on symbolic links and I also think that I am in way over my head. That seems to happen a lot with me and Linux, but that is ok, as I am enjoying the journey and learning a few things along the way.
Hmmm.... from that link you sent, version 2.2 seems to have a kill switch (squish) that operates with your mouse. Do yu have that version installed? If not, I'd remove the older one and replace it with 2.2 . As far as the rest is concerned, take your time, play with it and back up your files for the crashes. Meantime, I'd suggest going over to FedoraForum.org and posting there for that Enlightenment program if you are still having problems. Those guys can probably walk you through anything.
I maintain all linux systems from a local university(Slack, Deb, Collage and RH/Fedora).
IMO the best way to update Fedora is using the Apt RPM from Fresh RPM's(this already includes it's full respo...)
Even tho it can give you some (small) problems combining it with Dag, I still recommend doing this (it solves more problems than it creates).
Unless yum becomes better(including SRPM's) I don't recommend using it.
