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 installed KDE on Ubuntu today, and liked it. While I was using it, and adept showed up and told me to update some files, so I did.
I was configuring some files (mostly Compiz), and was able to ctrl+alt+backspace just fine. However, and I think this may be where the problem happened, it might have been during an adept update. But even after the update, I was still able to ctrl+alt+backspace (what is that called anyway?) just fine.
Then I shut the computer down.
When I tried to reboot, I was greeted by th kubuntu load screen. When it was finished, the screen became black for a bit then came back to the load screen, but the bar didn't move. I was able to go to another tty, and logged in there. It told me that the following:
resume: libgcrypt version: 1.2.3
resume: Could not read image
The tty worked fine though.
Is there any way to fix this? Something in the back of my mind tells me that during that adept update, there might have been something like libgcrypt version: 1.2.3 loading. Can I start gnome or KDE from the tty? And please don't tell me I'll have to reinstall, right before Gusty comes out. I spent quite a bit of time getting Ubuntu just right, and I have a couple of important files.
