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 just installed Suse 9.2. I am now trying to work with a sequencer (rosegarden) but I can't.
It says that the jack server is not running. I tried to start Jack with QJackctr but it refuses to open. I went to Yast in order to reconfigure my souncard and I saw that it detects 2 Sound Cards. One configured (Ensoniq... - I think) and one not (Creative Audio PCI...). When I tried to configure the Creative I got an error message that says that the snd-ens1371 module could not be loaded and that I had to check the alsa package and run again alsaconf. I reinstalled alsa package with Yast and run alsaconf. Everything went ok. But still can't configure the Creative Sound Card and some programms say that I have to configure my sound card before starting.
If you can get sound output from an application then it seems safe to say that your sound system is basically working.
I am surprised to hear that xmms hangs. Does it hang regardless of the output plugin used? (E.g. ALSA or OSS - press ctrl-P for the preferences window, see the Audio I/O Plugins tab). Or does it depend on the plugin?
I turned XMMS on, then CTRL-P. the audio output was to auto. i changed it to ALSA, double-clicked to an mp3 on the playlist and I got a message saying that my sound card is not configured properly or another application is preventing XMMS from playing. I changed again the output to OSS, again double-click and XMMS hanged! By the way how can I close it like I did with ctr-alt-del on windows?
In XMMS, when the alsa is selected at ouput, click configuration(alsa output configuration) and select hw0,1(or something similar the last one) instead of the default in the drop down box. apply OK and then see.
