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.

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.

Máte grafickú kartu AMD alebo NVIDIA? Skúste vypnúť to z BIOSu a potom bootovanie Linuxu. Viete, ako zmeniť nastavenia systému BIOS? Ak nie, potom si môžete urobiť škodu tam!
Google translation from Slovak: Do you have a graphics card AMD or NVIDIA? Try to disable it in the BIOS and then booting Linux. Do you know how to change the BIOS settings? If not, then you can do damage there!

Reason: Added translation
All member-created content should be in English. This allows our moderators to ensure all content complies with all LQ rules.
Hryavz, please. For the reason above you should try to post your questions in English (eventually use Google translate as we did. It's better than nothing). This will allow a larger number of members to help you and to understand the problem. Thank you.
Všetky člen-vytvoril obsah by mal byť v angličtine. To umožňuje našim moderátori, aby zabezpečila všetok obsah je v súlade so všetkými pravidlami LQ.
Hryavz, prosím. Pre by dôvod, prečo nad vami pokúsiť sa písať svoje otázky v angličtine (prípadne použite Google prekladača, ako sme to urobili. Je to lepšie ako nič). To umožní väčší počet členov, aby vám pomohol, a porozumieť problému. Ďakujem.
I'm sorry but I gave you the chance to Google translate your posts and continue the discussion. Since you didn't take the opportunity, I'm forced to close this thread according to the LQ rules. Hope to see you again, anyway.
for anybody having the same problem, the issue lies with the AMD graphics card, in that it is new and lacks driver support in the vanilla kernel. Once the live CD is able to boot by using workarounds given below, drivers can be downloaded from the official website and once installed, will work without any problems.
On the Linux Mint live CD start-up screen, try selecting "Compatibility Mode" and press ENTER. if it does not work, at the start-up screen, press tab, and add "nomodeset". You should be able to run on the desktop now.
The driver will be in the zip file. Please unpack the file and then read the information listed here. It could be in a file called "readme.txt" or the like. then you need to boot linux, and the terminal log you have to give the commands mentioned therein.
