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.

hi, so if anyone here is familiar with the game minecraft, that would help hugely, i had an issue with it where i suddenly couldnt play, id log on and the screen would just be black and now i get a crash report, ill post that as a link at the bottom. But im a complete noob and have no clue what im doing, and apparently the drivers have been mixed up? not sure, but how can i get it back to normal and be able to play again. Also my computer ran minecraft absolutely fine before it just suddenly happened a while ago and i just came back to it. If anyone could help it would be really helpful, thanks so much.
oh lol thanks, sorry im not good at this haha, but when i put that in i got this:
Linux version 3.2.0-87-generic (buildd@aatxe) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #125-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 19 08:25:10 UTC 2015
and no idea what that means lol i didnt make this computer/set it up, my brother did haha but think its ubunutu, it says i can update to ubuntu but when i do it say that i cant install due to internet issues, but my internet is fine lol, thanks for the help so far guys
Will give the distro and version that I was referring. Regarding OpenGL you need a video card that supports it and then install the appropriate driver for your video card (referred to as a kernel module in Linux). The kernel module for your video card should implement the OpenGL specification. So basically you just need the right module.
i dont know what you mean, do you have a link or something or something to lead me in the right direction, computers confuse me. Also why has it suddenly changed and i cant play minecraft but can play games like runesape? its confusing to me and i dont get it lol. I put in that code and i got this btw:
