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.

Does anyone know where can ALL the libraries needed to watch a DivX movie in Linux? I keep downloading movie watching programs and I keep being asked for libraries that I do not have. WHICH and WHERE are all theese libraries?
Yes, downloaded that. Just that it might need some libraries I do not have. (I am using the Internet elswhere and I will have to get home to test it). Does it not require some libraries that are not present in a RedHat8 installation?

Distros seem to have a problem with putting codecs on their cd's.In that case it's the win32 codecs - redhat doesn't even include mp3 decoding anymore.
THEY SURE AS HELL DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ADVERTISING THAT MULTIMEDIA -whatever that is - WORKS OUT OF THE BOX.
I finally managed to solve the problem with Mplayer. It required LibPNG and zdlib to work. I still can't install the GUI, though, because it cannot find libPNG which I installed (to make it install even WIHTOUT the GUI). Keyboard should do for know.
I believe mplayer comes with a script that will copy all the relevant win32 codecs which it can find in your MS-Windows install.
You will also find packages on the internet which contain all the win32 codecs you will ever need (certainly all the ones which xine can use, this is what I have).
If it is just DivX you want they you may want to download the Playa from DivX.com (they do a Linux version), it is still alpha but it works okay for me, it is the only player under Linux which supports divx5 (AFAIK).
