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 transferred inn2 server from an old Gentoo server to Ubuntu 10.04. However, I can't get it running. When I try to rebuild history file and overview database process starts and looks like it is running (and, by the way, using system resources), but with no result after ~ 4 hours of such activity.
I did the following to transfer old files to a new server:
1. Moved old files located in /var/spool/news to a new server;
2. Moved config files;
3. Copied old files from news/articles, news/overview and from news/db to corresponding folders on a new server;
4. Tried to rebuild history and overview files;
The following command work fine: "makehistory -f newfilename", but when I start news service CPU utilization flies up and stays at the top until I kill it.
If I try to rebuild overview database with "makehistory -O" it looks like it is running, but with no result at the end (as I described earlier).
What could be wrong?
Any help would be appreciated!
