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 have a problem with the TV on Suse 9.3. The TV card works perfectly on Windows on the same PC.
I went at Yast which autodetects the card as
SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder
I make the sound test and everything works OK. Then I make a scan and it finds me 10 channels (the windows finds me about 10) and then I press finish.
When I press again on the TV on Yast the following thing is written:
Installed TV and Radio Cards:
SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder
Installed as TV card number 0.
In Suse I have a few programs for watching TV. I tried them all, all of them saved the 10 channels which the Yast found but there is nothing - no picture, no sound, just noise.
During the scan of the channels it makes noise until it finds a channel, then I hear the sound of the chanel for a few seconds then it search another one and the noise continues until it finds a new channel. The problem is that after finding all the channels this noise doesn't stop. I go out of Yast, I save what I did and the noise continues. I restart the PC and the noise is still on. In order to stop the noise I delete the TV card in Yast and it stops. I don't know what to do. Please, anybody can help me?
I don't know if it helps but this is what I receive on these commands:
I reconfigured a few times Yast and made a few restarts and it finally worked - it found all the channels, it has video and audio. The only problem is that the audio doesn't stop, I switch off the program for TV and I still hear the audio from the program. I make restart of the pc and the tv sound appears even on the start of Suse before I go in any profile. It continues no matter in which profile I log in. I can only change the channel or delete the configuration from Yast.
Please, if anybody knows how to stop it? It's a bit stupid to configure it each time I want to watch tv and delete it each time I want to stop it.
