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.

Using the package installer in Intrepid . . . Trying to download Limewire through it. The box froze and I force-quit it. Now, whenever I try to open up the file through the package installer to restart it, it says there's already an instance of one of the programs running (either it, synaptic, or another) . . . but there aren't, and even the original installer isn't in the list of processes in System Monitor or in HTOP. I tried restarting. I also tried redownloading/resaving the file completely instead of just opening it. I'm a little frustrated. Any help?
The package installer. It comes up, then prompts me to allow administrator capability with my password, then comes up again, processes something, and then errors . . . Only one software management tool is allowed to run at the same time, please close the other application, e.g. Update Manager, aptitude, or synaptic first.
But none of these are running. I didn't open them, and they're not listed in processes. . . nor is the original Package Installer (whichever is default with Intrepid, I guess; neither one of those three).
