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.

ok so i would like to know in fedora is there a standard way of finding a packages dependency so you can erase it. ive used bash ie. tab twice found packages but when i use yum erase it says no packages availble. so is there any easy way of erasing the packages you dont want
If the package was installed via yum (or rpm), then yes yum can remove the package that way. If it was installed via make install or as a bin then no yum cannot remove it. It would help if you listed a real example.
i tried that though and it made my entire KDE environment invisible except for the windows i had up, i reinstalled it and logged out and it was fine. Although i had to reinstall flash and stuff because apparently that got erased.
is this supposed to happen or do i have a bug on my system
