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.

Nice to meet you all. New to this forum and recently started working on Linux.
Here is my problem. I'm working a Set top Box with Linux Embedded. The framebuffer of this box supports for 16 bits per Pixel. When I try to draw something (setting few colors) it is NOT displaying any thing. Now when I do the below procedure then I see something on screen.
1. Receive the Variable Screen Info
2. Forcibly Set the Pixel size to 32 bits.
3. Write the Variable Screen info using IOCTL with FBIOPUT_VSCREENINFO
4. Again set back the Pixel Size from 32 bits to 16 bits
5. Do step 3.
After following above 5 steps then I'm able to see something.
Does anybody face this problem please discuss and please guide me if anybody have a solution.
