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 installed all the updates for redhat via the Alert notification tool. Now it seems that GAIM is kicking me out about every 30 seconds or so. Just closes outta no where. Wondering if anyone has experienced this or can suggest a way to fix.

i would ask, are you trying to do something like change fonts or doing some othe kind of function? i think it's just gaim crashing. everytime i try to do something like click the fontface button to change the font, gaim crashes. since you got tcl/tk installed, have you tried amsn?
Gaim still works with MSN provided you're using a recent version (0.71 is our current version), and you have SSL libraries properly installed. We support either Mozilla NSS or GNUTLS. Check the FAQ for more information.

yep. got all that on my end. it works fine, but like i said, it just crashes on me when i do something like try to click the font face button to change the font. doesn't generate any errors in either the gui or the CLI. i don't know about what the original poster is doing exactly though.
if you're refering to me, i've got .71 installed by source. rpm is no go for me running rh 7.3. plus my problem is no big deal for me. if you're referring to the topic starter, he/she (?) did install from rpm.
"The MSN plugin won't load, but I have Mozilla NSS!
Some distributions, including Slackware, install Mozilla NSS to a non-standard directory. The fix is simple. Edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 (or whatever version you're using, but it's usually 1.4) to the file. Then re-run configure and recompile Gaim.
Mozilla 1.5 has a broken .pc file and does not install the necessary .h files, and so will not be detected. "
This is what I mean.
Vancouver is really getting into the rainy season, hehe.
