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.

trying to install eee-control which will allow me to overclock my netbook(really annoyed that when i launch terminal or firefox i count to two-one-thousand before it opens)
so i downloaded the package and when i try to install this is my error
anthony@anthony-1005HA:~$ sudo dpkg -i eee-control_0.9.4_all~karmic.deb

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
eee-control : Depends: python (< 2.7) but 2.7.5-5ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: python-central (>= 0.6.11) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: dkms (>= 2.0.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: gettext but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: python-smbus but it is not going to be installed
python-dev : Depends: libpython-dev (= 2.7.5-5ubuntu1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: python2.7-dev (>= 2.7.5-1~) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Is it a version issue? is it not backwards compatible?
any help would be appreciated, also i downloaded lfsb but i don't think my chip is supported
