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.

Hello. My name is Eric. I am new to Linux and am having a problem recompiling the kernel on my Compaq Armada M300 laptop running RedHat V7.2. I am using GRUB. I followed the steps in the kernel howto, downloading the sources, make xconfig, etc. When I had finished make bzImage, I ran make modules, make install, and make modules_install. For some reason, when I rebooted to my new kernel, I got errors like modprobe: cannot locate char-something during the boot. I know this is some program with loadable modules, but I have no idea what caused it or how to fix it. Help!
If you have probs with modules you don't need or have and don't wanna see a warning, try adding a line like (don't use this line, it's for Appletalk) "alias net-pf-5 off" to /etc/modules.conf.
Btw, posting errors does come in handy for ppl to help.
Btw, IIRC the 10 means revision ten. The kernel version is the branch (2.4) + release (7).
Thank you. I know that these messages aren't important, but I compiled most of the options I need as modules. When I run the old kernel and do a lsmod, I get between four and ten modules. The new kernel never has more than three running. What is wrong and how can I fix it?
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
if you recompiled the same kernel version, your
modules would over write your old ones when you
lpd is the printer daemon.
it probably will not shut down because it didn't start
in the first place.
