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.

When ever I try and use add/remove applications through Gnome it gives me issues... once I select the new packages and click continue it opens a window saying I'm missing 3 packages and it can't continue.
Can I fix this some how?? I updated with Up2date, ever since then I've had this problem
Yes apt-get is available for Fedora Core and other rpm based distros, the version for Fedora can be found at the fedora pre-extras repository or from freshrpms. You may also want to download Synaptic. Personally I prefer apt over yum, never had serious problems using it. Also, I think the packages you are missing are the development packages, eg, pam-devel, libselinux-devel etc. Sometimes if a package is installed but other programs or rpm say it's not installed just try installing the development versions. Using yum or apt will make sure that if those packages have their own dependencies they will be automatically resolved.
Originally posted by Snipersnest thats just it they are installed....but they are newer version that what it lists so it screws it up.
I'm about to just dump my FC3 and start it over again. Thats the only thing I find hard about Linux is the way they do Program installation. Other than that Linux is just a much more advanced DOS.
oh and apt-get isn't on FC3...its not made for it yet...so all I can use is yum
Horrible way to reply to peoples trying to help you... we searched the net, we posted links, we give opinions and you not even read them and flame Linux. And not even one comment you did was right. "Thanks" and "I will look into it" would take you a long way in a community... but you are on my ignore list now
