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.

Yeah, so I just got SuSE 9.1 up and running last night, and everything was good, until earlier today when I was going into YaST to uninstall some jazz. I click the "Install/Remove Software" button and I get a wait cursor for a few seconds, then nothing happens. Kind of frustrating. So I tried getting at it from the shell. But when I type "yast" in the shell it gets half of an ascii gui up and then spits out this error message:
segmentation fault at /usr/share/YaST/clients/menu.ycp:38
I googled it and found that ncurses, or lack thereof could be the culprit, so I re-installed the rpm from the CD, but still no luck on either front.
My system was recently (week or two ago) updated through YOU. The update also disabled my internet connection, modem and lan, but that's another story. It is a previous update that disabled some yast modules. Let's concentrate on yast first.
The following updates for yast was on suse's site:
I had the same problem with my firefox . It did't run anymore. All I could get after running firefox from xterm was "segmentation fault".
After I removed firefox (rpm -e firefox) and re-install in (rpm -Uhv firefox???.rpm) everything became normal again
Try the kdelibs*.rpm's see if that fixes it. I have seen several post on lots of forums about this. I have had the same problem in the past,
but after applying all updates to all packages it works again.
You will probably end up in dependency hell too so make sure you've got a couple of carbonated beverages close by.
