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.

Alrigh, so here's the problem:
when opening xmms or any other app that uses sounds i get:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
** CRITICAL **: Unable to open display
Now, i had booted my comp only once after install. Before the first boot i hadn't even tried anything. After that sounds refused to work for me as a normal user, and after the second boot i started to get that as a root when using xmms, mplayer, xine or dc_gui (wich apparently uses a sound port too...).
So, does aneone have any other solution except reinstalling for me? (i can do that but i'd need to conf x again and i'm not sure wether my friend would be patient enough to help me with it... last time he did it trough ssh and had a few difficulities with it...
And my distro is Debian, soundcard is SB Live! ... is there something more you'd need to know? Well, I hope that'll do...
Hmm.... It would appear that i don't have them installed... atleast modprobe returns no answer... I am certain that i did install them in the debian install, they couldn't of have just disappeared, could've they?
ok, problem solved, the prob was in x rights...
if someone has the same prob tell them to do this:
(replace <USER_RUNNING_X> with username running x =) )
and then to put export XAUTHORITY=/home/$USER/.Xauthority into /etc/profile
