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.

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 am using my Linux as a server, so I decide to stripe off GNOME,
I cannot do it graphically using add/remove appailcations, since
the load is already too heavy; when I did: rpm -e gdm.*.*, I got
a symbolic error, and the remving process hangs?
I am wondering if there is a way on
1. Completely remove gdm package
2. Do not invoke GNOME when the system boots? (keep in the
command shell mode)
or just take out or rename with a begining "_"
the Sxxgdm link in the runlevel folder you are currently using. xx is the start order number
ckeck /etc/inittab for default run level
/etc/rc.d/init.d/rcx.d where x is your run level
Per your suggestion, I made my own start/stop/restart script for my application,
however, my application requires to be executed in non-root user mode, how can I switch
to my_user_name mode, put su my_user_name in the script, seems does not work;
also my application has an option, shall I put it in $prog or invoke $prog with -option
