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'm a newbee to Linux and am having real problems with K3B.
K3B starts fine and allows me to make my selections etc. As soon as I start the burn process, K3B freezes solid. However in the background the burn process is working fine, because eventually the CD ejects and is written to perfectly. K3B remains forzen until I reboot or kill its process from a console.
My humble understanding here is that maybe once K3B has handed over to CDRecord, CDRecord does the business in the background, but K3B gets itself wrapped in a knot.
I've tried upgrading K3B but without success, mainly due to it not finding the x86_64 libraries it needs (even though they are there). I've tried installing a new binary version of K3B ( 0.11.6 ), but it didnt work at all, I get something about a server error 502 in /var/log/messages
Does Suse come with a package directory on it's main site? You could also do a google search to find a kde-3.2 package made for Suse that you could use. Try looking for sites that have all the packages you need for kde and suse.
To resolve dependences you should try to use yum ( you have to get it from web because It's not included in SuSE ). It's similar to RPM but It's easier to use ( resolve automatically the dependences ). However It's better to learn even RPM.
You're welcome, Ian. Glad you have it working now. Apt-get is great because if you have a sources.list with repositories from many different sources, then you can usually get all dependencies installed when you install a new program. That saves you from having to hunt all over to find the files yourself that a program needs.
