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.

were in the world do i get these darn blasted lib... the stupid libasound.so.2 is one that both mplayer and totem seem to want. when i do a serch for them with google, or rpmfind i get something that is not exactly what they are looking for and need more lib files/programs to install them too.
all i want is to listen to some mp3s while i work on my system. is that to Fin much to ask from *nix?

Skin not found ( default ).
now i get this mess after using the apt-get to download and install as per the instructions from the mplayer site.
really getting miffed here at something that should be basic simple and easy to do as playing music.
I noticed one of the errors was no skin found. You could try to play on of the songs with mplayer(no gui)
I would reccomend installing all of your developmentel tools. These are needed to compile from source code. Goto add/remove programs install of of your developmental stuff(it will prompt you to insert a disk). After you do this dowload the source file from mplayer and install from that. You will be so much happier with the finall product. Mplayer was the first program I compiled from source. RPMS were driving me crazy.
Mplayer has circular dependencies, which is t o say there is no correct order all necessary rpms (common, gui, skin, lame-libs I believe) have to be installed simultaneously.
rmp -Uvf mplayer-common mplayer-gui lame-lib skin
Only of course using the actual file names which I am at the moment far too lazy to look up.
The instructions on GreySector are pretty good, I got it working for FC1 without too much hassle, though because they seem to be in the middle of switching versions apt-get for rpm's won't work even with the listed servers so you have to do it manually.
