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.

Just wondering, has anyone found a fix to the problem of the flash player not syncing audio to the pictures? Seems to not be a browser issue, as it does the same thing in Konqeuror and Mozilla with Flash Player 6 and 7
hi. just wondering if anyone has a workaround for this. i can't get the audio and video to sync properly even with the latest version of the flash plugin. does anyone have any details as to what the root cause of this is? is it a bug in the flash plugin itself which macromedia/adobe can't fix or something? it's really annoying to not be able to sync properly... i myself posted about this over a year ago, and this thread here is almost two years old... i'd actually be very surprised if by now someone, somewhere hasn't come-up with a solution...
well, i tried with the ubuntu dapper flight 7 live cd and the flash audio/video sync was perfect... i assume then that the problem only occurs when one is using kernel 2.4... that's good news i guess...
Distribution: Slackware with Dropline Gnome, Gentoo
Same problem here... Slack 10.2, Dropline Gnome 2.14, 2.6.15, latest Flash7 plugin. From what I've read on Macromedia's, er, Adobe's site (don't have a URL handy for the discussion), this is a known, longstanding, unresolved issue with the Linux Flash player. Hopefully it'll be resolved in the 8.5 player due out later this year (no 8.0 for Linux, as according to Adobe 8.5 is coming so soon after 8.0 that they just decided to skip to the end :-) ).
darn, i thought it would simply be a kernel version issue... but if you guys are having the problem with kernel 2.6, then i guess that's not it anymore... so could it perhaps be a library version issue?? i see it links to libc and a lot of X11 libs...this is on my slackware 10.2 box (kernel 2.4), where the sync does NOT work properly BTW:
it's weird, while the sync was perfect when running ubuntu live, after installing ubuntu for real now the sync is messed-up again... i'm on ubuntu 6.06 LTS... anyone been able to find a workaround for this yet?? i tried using alsa-oss but no luck...
We won't be seeing it until early 2007, but Adobe is hard at work on bringing Flash Player 9 to Linux. In a series of recent blog postings, Adobe's lead engineer on the Flash Player team, Mike Melanson, has been keeping the Linux community up to date with Adobe's plans.
Adobe's main goal is to create a Flash Player 9 that is feature-comparable to its Windows and MacOS offerings. Another, according to a recent interview with Melanson, is to enable proper audio/video synchronization. In the last version of Flash that was available for Linux, Flash Player 7, this was a significant problem.
