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'm using Mandrake 10.0 with kernel 2.6.3-7 and I haven't succeeded to get the jack audio library to work on my system. I have a pci soundcard with the C-media 8738 chip installed.
I have downloaded the latest tar-ball of 'jack-audio-connection-kit' and run the 3-step installation (./configure ; make ; make install). This I've tried several times (also uninstalled linux a few times and reinstalled it).
I did set up the 'tmpfs' system by adding it to '/etc/fstab' (according to the installation instructions of jack-library).
I admit that I don't understand much of this setup or how to manually start the jack-server. I tried command-line with different attempts like:
'jackd -d alsa -d hw:0'
'jackd -v -d alsa hw:0 -p 512'
I also installed the latest ALSA driver from a tar-ball, and completed this installation with
When I start the program 'Hydrogen' (drum machine), I get the error message: 'Error starting audio driver'. This program preferrably uses the jack-library; but when I choose the alsa-driver in Hydrogen audio-setup - the program works.
But I need to use the jack-library - since I'm gonna use it for multitrack recording in either 'Ardour' or 'Rosegarden' (these HAVE TO use jack).
I haven't a clue what to do, and I'm by far NOT confident in configuring the linux system or configuration files.
I HAVE read the documentations that's listed in the jack web-site. Still, I don't get it - I've had a hard time to understand all the info about this!
Does anyone know how to handle and solve this problem with jack-library?
Thanks for your understanding and patience.
