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.

After --force ing the ATI driver installation, I'm trying to build and install a kernel module in order to get hardware acceleration, but I'm getting the following error when I "sh make.sh" in the fglrx/build_mod directory:
[root@x1-6-00-07-e9-c1-3c-84 build_mod]# sh make.sh
ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as ""
instead of "2.6.3-7mdk-i686-up-4GB".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
Ive set up my symlink using the following commands
1. Get a vanilla(ftp.kernel.org) source
2. Unpack it in /usr/src
3. Copy the config file mandrake(redhat, debian, ...) used to compile your **RUNNING** kernel(this is generally found in /boot/config-...)
4. rename the config file to /usr/src/<linux version>/.config
5. cd into /usr/src/<linux version> and issue a "make oldconfig". If the kernel versions are the same it should answer all questions by itself.
6. issue a make dep(not needed for 2.6 kernels)
7. Now go run your installation for other drivers,
*OPTIONAL* 8. You may need to link /usr/src/linux to the kernel source, and/or link /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/build to the linux source.
Originally posted by jrmann1999 Goto ftp.kernel.org(as I referenced above), find a local mirror, go into the appropriate version folder, find the appropriate version. Vanilla refers to a kernel that hasn't been patched by anyone.
I'll follow the steps you outlined and report back.
One quick question though, I'm using the 2.6.3 up-4GB kernel because the default one doesn't recognize all my memory. Using this "vanilla" kernel will it find all my RAM?
Thanks for your help so far
