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 just downloaded eroaster and tried to install from source. Everything worked fine, I received no errors when compiling or making the install, but when I was done and typed eroaster to launch the program, I got this---
(eroaster:10520): Gtk-WARNING **: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/engines/libmetal.so: undefined symbol: gtk_toggle_button_get_type
26.10.2002 08:51:09.270 ERROR main [Main] cannot import name GtkVBox
Anyone have a clue what this error is?
I'm running RH 8.0 on a 700MHz Athlon with 512 MG of memory. Thanks in advance!
you didn't get compilation errors as it is not compiled, it's written in python, which is a script langauge, not a programming language. eroaster doesn't use gtk2, make sure you have gtk1.2 installed and try again, it is presumably picking up the wrong library paths somehow.
looking at that script there are a reasonable amount of changes i'd instantly make. firstly write it in perl, so as to make it so much easier to expand. also why should a user have to select the scsi channel? this should really be autodetected, and given a more limited choice if necessary. There's a load of cleanup code i'd add too, like removing the unwanted wav files. (or maybe you should speed things up by not requiring an iso file to be made in the first place. it's possible to decode the mp3 files directly on the burning cd after all.) anyway, it's a nifty little script by the look of it so far.
acid_kewpie, thanks. Some of your suggestions are going to my to-do list. It's very interesting that from the begining, I just wanted to write a simple script that would copy iso. It's evolving. As for Perl, I don't know anything about it. When you say iso, do you mean the script duplicates an iso to copy? It was gone. If you mean converting mp3 to iso, it doesn't. Try it. Before it burns, exit. Take a look at your folder. The making of iso for others like copying cd is done for improved performance. Plus, that's what some doc says: mkisofs then cdrecord.
