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've installed gnome 2.2 from source and it works but when I also install control center it turns off DPMS and in its place puts on a random screensaver that I have no control over. The only way I've been able to get dpms to turn itself back on again is running 'make uninstall' in the control center directory.
Now I get:
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000
auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf
bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
acceleration: 2/1 threshold: 4
prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes
timeout: 600 cycle: 600
default colormap: 0x20 BlackPixel: 0 WhitePixel: 16777215
Bug Mode: compatibility mode is disabled DPMS (Energy Star):
Standby: 1200 Suspend: 60 Off: 300
DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On
hi-mark (KB): 5120 low-mark (KB): 3840 balance (%): 70
Config file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Modules path: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules
Log file: /var/log/Xorg.0.log
But before, when control center was installed, it'd say 'DPMS disabled' and I saw no where where I could disable screensaver and re-enable dpms.
Has anyone had this problem? What can I do to get control center and dpms working.
