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.

My radeon 9600 is having tons of problems with Fedora
It had X server problems with RHat 9.0 too!
It crashes every time I boot whenever I try to do anything on the login screen with the mouse or when I try to log in.
Does anyone else have a Radeon 9600???
I've been using linux for 5 years, debugging stuff is a pain because I have no time (school, sports, RCing, more extracurricular (i'm 12)), I'm angry.
I tried everything from downloadign ATI drivers, looking for the Xconfig utility, to kicking my computer just kidding, instead I checked to see if my GPU was overheating (for some reason my 9600 had no fan, good thing airflow in my horribly antediluvian rig(Asus CUSL2 mobo, PIII 700 mhz, 512mb PC100 memory , 9600 , DARN low-wattage CHEAP PSU!!!)) but it wasn't
Sorry for being a discursive poster but CAN anyone help me?
I am new at ATI Linux issues, I sorted out my firegl mobility t2 issues (to some extent at least) a few weeks ago. ATI ususally have their own version of the xconfig utility that writes an XFree86config-4 file, which should be the file you want to look at. If you have done this and it did not work, can you post the xfrree86 log file contents so we can get a look at what is happening? Please also include distribution information, kernel (use the command: uname -r ).
I have a 9600 Mobility w/128ddr in my notebook and have just given Fedora a try. I've been using SuSE 9, which BTW is an excellent distribution and supports the M(P)10 chipset but only in 2D. Works fine otherwise. Not a gamer so I really don't NEED the 3D. It'd be nice to have though. I'm using the VESA (framebuffer) driver with Fedora. No 3D either but the 2D performance is much smoother on my particular machine (SXGA) than with SuSE. Your results may vary. I had tried the generic radeon driver in fedora but it was nogo. I'll be content to wait for this card to be supported as my machine won't be obsolete too soon, I hope! It's a 3Ghz P4 with 1G of ddr, DVDrw nice screen etc. I hope that holds for a while. Good luck.
hi all! :)
when I type this command, I obtain this result:

how can I delete my problem?
thank yo very much. ;)
yeah, use --nodeps on the end of the RPM command to remove the module(without caring if it breaks dependencies), then make sure to install the new RPM driver module right away.
If you get garbage during install about not having a customized kernel and 3d stuff being slow, follow the instructions on running ./make.sh in the readme file. Make sure you set permissions on make.sh and everything else using chmod +rwx make.sh as root.
