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 would try to post some of the errors. It will make it easier to help you.
i always post the errors. But this time they r too many.
So i thought of some general solution/advise from people on this board.
Anyways, i'll write and post the errors in morning. Its past midnight....can't make it right now.
And for me the strange thing is that....i was doing all these things with the newly compiled kernel. But my old kernel too is throwing the same errors....why so ?
No matter what kernel, it needs libraries which are not installed per kernel basis. Since all kernels use the same libraries/binaries on your machine. I guess is that every kernel is going to give you pretty much the same errors.
I tried reinstalling the individual packages.
The system was up and running....but when i checked the packages, most of them were installed twice.
Everything was messed up so i reinstalled the O/S.
Would like to ask one question now.
ok this time i didn't had the UPS backup. But suppose someone has backup of 10 minutes and he is in the mid of
#upgradepkg --reinstall */*.tgz
and suppose its gonna take 15 minutes more....Then how to stop this process safely ???
Would there be any option for resuming it ???
Ctrl-c would stop the upgradepkg, but potentially in the middle of upgrading something. I'd say figure out what directory and file you're on, use Ctrl-c to stop, reinstall/fix the package you were on, then, when you have power, you can manually install the rest in that directory, then all the rest in the remaining directories.
