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.

99% sure that mplayer has been compiled from source WITHOUT having the relevant XFree86-devel package installed. This means that X11 and XV outputs are not availble, and so MPlayer will then fall back to fbdev as a last resort, which also failed here.... so install xfree86-devel and recompile mplayer
