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.

As the title says, I think I broke my Open GL.
(Please nobody ask what I was doing to break it, because I can't remember. )
Now, none of the OpenGL screen-savers work at all. And whenever I try to start an OpenGL application from command line I get the following error:
OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display ':0.0'
It was working fine until I messed with something. (Maybe this'll teach me... but probably not.)
What I would like to know is whether or not I would have to re-install to fix this.
(It won't bother me either way)
I've installed the nvidia drivers. and now I don't have X. I'm posting this using lynx. It's all gone dark!!
Funny stuff over, I'm going to re-install. Maybe it might fix some other issues I have been having.
Like the fact that my keyboard is set to the german (I think) layout, and will not change back, no matter what.
EDIT: Stuff it. I can't be bothered with a re-install. (Not today, anyway.) I found that it did backup my xorg.conf, so now I have X back up. (Posted with Firefox.)

Amarok: [Loader] Starting amarokapp..
Amarok: [Loader] Don't run gdb, valgrind, etc. against this binary! Use amarokapp.
Amarok: [Loader] amarokapp probably crashed!
I got the nvidia drivers from the nvidia site, ran the installer as root (using single user boot). It completed (with no errors which is surprising. ) it installed, and I continued the boot process.
entered runlevel 5, and it tried to start KDM. And failed.
