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 had a clean install the 1st time, but then it crashed and I couldn't get it rebooted so I did a new install. I now have multiple problems that I would like to address.
My 1st install seemed to be working ok. I down loaded Fire Fox and I think Iron browsers. I always listen to radioparadise.com and I had no trouble listening via mp3 live streaming. I started using my Samsung 10.2 mp camera to browse through my pictures. Everything was working ok then too, or so it seemed. All of a sudden the screen crashed and I was unable to reboot, hence my decision to do a reinstall.
After my 2nd install, I was unable to play radioparadise.com streaming by using mp3 again even though I could use one of the other streams. I just can't use mp3 anymore. My pup radio works just fine.
My 2nd problem is that I have downloaded several Apps using the manager, which seems to be working fine, but when it finishes some of the downloads it tells me that the download was ok but that there was missing dependencies missing. That was Slang 2.2.2-i486.pet. I am thinking that Slang 2.2.2-i486 was there at some point but I don't know how to get it back, or even if it was there to begin with. That's my problem. I don't know how to get it or even where to look for it.
I totally appreciate any help. I would rather save than to do another reinstall.
Thanks from a newbie.
I really want to make this work.
