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 a complete newbie to Linux and I'm having trouble enabling direct rendering.
I'm running Ubuntu Hardy Heron on my laptop, a Dell Inspiron 6000, with a ATI MOBILITY RADEON X300 PCI video controller.
I did some searching but couldn't find a definate answer.
When executing glxinfo | grep rendering I get this:
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
Here I'm stuck, since I have no idea how to set LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose.
Can someone help me out? I bet the answer is quite simple...
Thanks for the effort, but it didn't work. I followed the instructions (twice) but I get the error mentioned at the end of the ATI-guide. I guess it's because I have a Radeon x300 and not the Radeon x1200 the guide is made for? I also didn't get any output after typing in sudo depmod -a. All steps before that were finished successfully.
