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.

5) Starting the first time kaffeine you get asked if you like to use it as help application for mms:// (Microsoft Media) streams and for rtsp:// (Real Media and others). I have selected both options.
6) I have set the xine parameter for the video driver to "opengl" otherwise with the default "auto" the graphic system crashes and I'm landing again in the SUSE login mask!!!
A) I don't have DVB, but does I need other codecs or packages to play the most of the others video movie/streams types? Is there a set of short reference movies/streams to test kaffeine/xine? Or URLs to such a set?
B) Does the package "libdvdnav" is needed? A few people mean that for this version of kaffeine with SUSE 10.1 it is NOT needed. What's your opinion?
C) With the packages above I can play an unencrypted DVD like the DVD in the book "DVD demistified". The most commands seems to work as long as I have tested and I can move to a wished position with the slider. Instead, if I play a mpeg or avi file, kaffeine plays it, but I cannot move to another position with the slider. Why? What is wrong?
D) Playing certain WMV2 movies kaffeine displays the movie like through a green filter and with the time a piece after the other gets the right colors, but after about 10 seconds it gets again green and starts again to get better and again green and so on...
Does I have the wrong codec?
