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.

This is very cool and I'm really interested in how it all works out for you. Please keep in touch and let me know. I have a laptop that I think would be perfect for home recording but I'd need to get a real good soundcard.
Distribution: Mandrake 9.1, 10.1, SuSE 8.1 pro, 10.1, Red Hat 8.0/9.0
OK, I wanted to wait a couple of days before saying that Audacity is working fiiiiine! I don't know what some of you might have in mind, but for me it was exactly what I was looking for!!
Up to now, I can record myself and a guitar in seperate stereo or mono channels, and am now busy with the editing process of a track...that's a bit tricky though.
The installation, was a breeze. The microphone configuration took longer, given that I didn't now that what is referred to as a "mixer" or "xmixer", was for Linux users "kmix"....not that I knew what kmix was before either, but now I know that you need to tweak this in order for the mic to work....and that was it!
Anyways, highly recommended...all thumbs up from me!
PS: The link for Audacity software is somewhere in the threads above...
Hey vous, I just shot you an e-mail, but I washoping maybe someone else could help me out here, or I'll start another thread I guess.
I've got audacity already installd on my distro, (A Knoppix 3.2 harddrive install, which is basically Debian woody)
Anyway, it records fine, but when I go to lay a second track, i can't hear what's been previously recorded.
I went to edit the options to enable it, however I can't change anything- it tells me I have an invalid sound device setting (/dev/dsp ) which is correct, as far as I know-- that's what everything else is set to use, and It will record one track with this setting.
Now, anyone think of a way to help? I tried changing the permissions to /dev/dsp with chmod +rwx /dev/dsp , but no luck.
I have tried searches for help in other areas, but no luck. So...maybe someone here could shed some light on my problem. I am trying to get a recording application working, I have given up on KRec for the time, and just this morning downloaded Audacity from www.rpmfind.net, the install seemed to work , no errors anyway. Yet, when I start audacity I get a "Host Error" and thats it. It will not start. I have other sound applications working great, so my hardware is not the issue, and if I switch over to windows2k- I have a dual boot system configured for the time being- I can record just fine. I have searched for any reference to this error, but without success. I am running Mandrake Linux 9.1 distribution. (It does puzzle me also that KRec will not work, it seems a simple program and it will at least start but will not recognize any input. ARTS is configured correctly as well as my audio mixer. ) If anyone has encountered this problem with audacity and has the solution, please let me know. I have wondered, but am at work now so I cant try it, if maybe the ARTS sound server is the problem with audacity. Please, any audacity gurus out there, I need help!!!
