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 a sound card. The Creative PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi (TM) Titanium came with Dell T7500 Precision, and I am running Fedora 9. The thing is that I get the sound card to work. I downloaded the driver from Creative and installed it but still couldn't get it to work. Please advice.
I have a closely related card, and there has been crap Linux support for a long time - until now, actually. Creative was showing that they truly didn't care if Linux users could make use of this product - first with no Linux support, then with the piece of crap driver you tried - until they finally gave the guys over at the ALSA project a spec sheet, and a couple months later, ALSA now fully supports the basic functionality (7.1 channel out, nothing more advanced, AFAIK) of this card.
The one catch is that you need ALSA drivers version 1.0.21 or higher. Fedora 11 is currently shipping a kernel with 1.0.20, so you'll need to download the source of the alsa-driver package. I had no difficulties installing it and the card has worked perfectly since.
Obligatory: Fedora 9 is past end-of-life and not in any way supported. You will receive no updates, including critical security updates, and you should upgrade immediately. Added bonus relevant to this topic: you'll only have to recompile the driver for each new kernel until F11's has 1.0.21, which will probably be pretty soon, instead of forever due to getting no new kernels.
I have a weird problem and i have googled for it and didnt find the solution for it ,I use CentOS 5.3 and sound is fine
speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6 -twav
When i run the above code i get sounds from all my 5 speakers , so the drivers should be fine ! but when i play movies i get sound only from front two speakers i checked for this problem and i am not getting any solution and gave up
