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.

Since moving from FC10 to FC11, I find Evolution freezes frequently for about 30 seconds at a time while creating or replying to a message. It also takes about the same length of time to complete the 'Saving to folder' process when I click Send. I am not seeing this behaviour with any other applications. The only other glitch involving a freeze of some kind that I have found is the unpredictable loss of communication with my bluetooth mouse, but I expect these are two quite distinct conditions. Any help would be appreciated, as sending emails is driving me slowly nuts. I have Googled this problem and tried fedoraforum.org without turning up anything similar, or getting any hints.
Are you updating regularly ? .. I'm running Fed 11 and using Evolution every day, the only problem I have at the moment is the notification daemon crashing after telling me there's a new email. Your problem may not be Evolution itself .. try checking the debug logs - Help >> Debug logs
If so, you could try adding your hostname to the end of the 127.x... line, it's only a very vague 'name resolution' possibilty though. I hit the 'slow sudo' bug and had to add my fqdn to the end of ipv4 line in /etc/hosts
Go to the top of the class!!
After adding my fqdn to the 127.0.0.1 line in /etc/hosts and then rebooting, I can no longer freeze Evolution. Also, sudo was very slow at first - I had not really taken any notice of it the few times I used it. After the reboot, sudo responded immediately. On restart after the change to /etc/hosts, Bluetooth was disabled. After re-enabling, it works OK, although it has gone to sleep once already. As mentioned in a previous post, I think this is a totally separate problem.
Thanks for your kind assistance.
