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.

Sorry, but no-one needs to learn anything. In my opinion both Vi and EMACS are simply too hard to use
Sometimes the only option is to use ed editor ( the core of vi), so I'd see you drooled when you recover from a hard failover, and your startup scripts corrupted, reinstall? Maybe it is an option for you, I preffer to fix it. And learning is not gonna rot your mind in any way.
When you'll have a hard crash, you'll get it, the only option for you will be single user mode (init 1) no X or Y or Z whatsoever, to edit files you won't even be able to use emacs, ed (the parent of all UNIX editors including vi, which is just a superset of ed) is the last resort (if installed). That's what I mean.
I like it, not like that's saying much, but it does mean that I use it. As for that error, I've only gotten it when java wasn't really in my PATH. If you ran the installer, this is baffling. You might wanna try the .bin file, as it's nothing but the directory, compressed. You ./ the bin in /usr/bin/local and it creates the directory /usr/bin/local/java-1.4.1 then you just mv it to java and place /usr/loca/bin/java/bin into your path in /etc/profile.
If these instructions aren't helpful because you can't understand them, I'll be happy to go into further detail, but if they are ok for your level, let me know if you still have problems afterwards, and what you have tried.
Originally posted by acid_kewpie you've not tried a decent gnutella client then huh? most of this thread is not relevant, more than half is discussing a guy (who's now thankfully left)'s hatred of real text editors
Actually, I did try GTK-Gnutella, and didn't care for it. I never could seem to find fast enough host. However with LimeWire, I seem to have better luck. And I like the LimeWire style of searching.
As for the thread, the first page did seem to deal with my issue, as it dealt with the :Excpetion in Thread "main" line.
I really could care less about the "text editor" issue.
