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.

While on-line (Netscape, KDE,PPP) my PC became unresponsive
to any input at all, I mean any. Fortunately this ended
without rebooting... but upon recovering (after cleaning
up some other matters) when I tried to run startx
it just blanks out after a moment with msgs, inter alia:
Fatal Server Error:
cannot open default font fixed
That's an approximation of part of the msg. I gleaned
elsewhere that startx (or something) needs to write
to /tmp and probably it can't do so because that space
was filled up inadvertantly by something in the freeze
time. I don't see anything unusual in /var/log
running df shows that the / is about 89 %
I download stuff to /home which is less than 20 % full
All the files named core I can find are 0 bytes in size.
I'm out of clues, even those shrouded in bogosity.
(Also I can't run slocate, that might be another thread)
And a dear relative for whom a graphical browser is
an absolute necessity (for some part of a 24 hour period)
is expected to visit... nay has arrived. Sincerely TIA odat
