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 downloaded the 3.2 KDE program into the /tmp directory. Now I want to update everything. I tried using the install with YAST, but get dependency errors. Is there a particular order I have to do them in? or is there a way to update the KDE base and all the default applications via command line?
I did a search, but don't see any that pertain to Suse 9.0. I see ones for Mandrake and other distros, but not the one I am new to using, and trying to get a handle on. I have tried, if you bothered reading my post, but need more guidance, hopefully without your synical comments.
I upgraded through the rpms on suse 9.0. I went into init 3, went into the directory with all the rpms, had to do a --force --nodeps on kdebase (unfortuately), and then get rid of conflicts with open office and k3b, but everything else installed after that.
running fedora core 1, is it possible to download the new kde 3.2, switch to gnome, update kde, then switch back to kde? i normally use kde, and fc1 makes it simple to choose what x to use right at the boot screen
Thanks for the reply. I wanted to just get the RPMS to save on space. I go to the download directory where all the files are. It gives the option to install with Yast, which works until it gets dependency errors.
Could you explain in futher detail how to force the update via the command line?
