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.

am trying out MRTG for the first time. i have installed all the need tools and libraries, gd, zlib, libpng etc and also MRTG itself.
i also have installed SNMP and tested it: when i run the following command it gives:
[root@mail Documents]# snmpwalk -v 2c localhost -c public system
sysDescr.0 "Linux 2.4.22"
sysContact.0 root <email@example.com>
sysLocation.0 Lagos, Nigeria
sysORDescr.1 The MIB module to describe generic objects for network interface sub-layers
sysORDescr.2 The MIB module for SNMPv2 entities
sysORDescr.3 The MIB module for managing TCP implementations
sysORDescr.4 The MIB module for managing IP and ICMP implementations
sysORDescr.5 The MIB module for managing UDP implementations
sysORDescr.6 View-based Access Control Model for SNMP.
sysORDescr.7 The SNMP Management Architecture MIB.
sysORDescr.8 The MIB for Message Processing and Dispatching.
sysORDescr.9 The management information definitions for the SNMP User-based Security Model.
i shud think this means my snmp is running well . Mind u, this is a local computer connected on a network. the snmp device here is just my network card (Realtek 8139 c+).
i then created the working dir /var/www/mrtg
and the mrtg.cfg dit /home/mrtg/cfg/. i then ran the following
[root@mail Documents]# /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /var/www/mrtg' --global 'Options[_]:bits,growright' --output /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg firstname.lastname@example.org

libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.2.5

ERROR: Skipping webupdates because rateup did not return anything sensible
WARNING: rateup died from Signal 11
with Exit Value 0 when doing router '192.168.0.68_2'
Signal was 11, Returncode was 0
what do u think is the problem, it didnt display any web pages in the work dir except png images of MRTG.
