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.

kubuntu-5.10-breezy- kde 3.4
Installed nvidia drivers successfully
..and I extended(sources.list) to fetch applications(using adept) from the extended set of deb repositories(which i read were in a way unsafe and unsupported!)
Now probably the blunder i made was to updated a set of applications like konqueror, kcontrol, konsole etc that were (i think,) meant for KDE3.5 using adept. I did this without considering that the KDE installed on my system was 3.4. Also, adept showed them as upgradeable and so i marked them to upgrade.
After these updates i restarted the system and tried to login and received this error:
Xsession: Warning" Unable to write to /tmp; X session may exist with an error
At this error dialogue is an ok button. Pressing this button takes me back to login prompt (after a few screen flickers)
Trying to login with fluxbox and blackbox both gave me this same error. Though i am able to login into console mode.
I have tried recovery mode. but it still fails.
