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'm running debian 3.1 sarge and i haven't been able to have sound when using cedega, playing gltron, or anything else except kde's games, xmms, and noatun. i found out that it was the cause of my sound daemon. i saw artsd running and thought it might be the problem, so i killed it. then that made all of my sound stop working completely. so i started it back up again and the usual worked again. i came across something using google that said to make sure i had permissions to use esd. upon research it appears that it uses /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer. well, i didn't have /dev/dsp but i found it in /dev/.static/dev/dsp along with about 10 other dsps. i made a symlink to /dev and ran esd. it gives me an error saying i don't have the correct permissions so i run it as root and i get this little high pitched scale sound that i assume confirms it works. so i open up cedega and gltron and the sound works perfectly fine. so i tried changing permissions of dsp and mixer, but it ignores what i do. i checked to make sure i was in the audio group and i am. i'm using alsa, too on a custom 22.214.171.124 kernel. i've googled this numerous times and there seems to be other people who have the same problem but i couldn't find a working solution. anyone come across this before?
