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.

Everything was fine right after the installation... however, after closing it and re-launch the application, download manager is not working anymore when clicking a hyperlink of a file, not even manually choosing 'Save link target as...'
and clicking help > about mozilla is not working too.......... it worked in the first time... very strange.
Theme cannot be changed... i think there are loads of problems, yet to be discovered.. sad.
I initally suspected it the problem of my fluxbox, but it turned out to be the same when using gnome...
anyone having the same horrifying problem? Any solution? (I tired re-installing Mozilla (including re-downloading the source file) but the same problem occured)
p.s. now i have to copy the link and use
to download files....
Distribution: Ubuntu "Hoary" - The best distro around by a long shot.
Try deleting (or renaming) your old preferences files (the ~/.mozilla folder). Could be that there are obsolete settings that the browser is still reading that's messing it up (I've had this happen, although not the same problem in my case).
But I eventually found out the problem... all those problems are actually from the old Mozilla (came with Redhat 9 , should be 1.4) and my shortcut triggered the old version of Mozilla.... that explained the problem of 'only first time is ok'.
Now I explicitly go to /usr/local/mozilla and run #./mozilla, it is then the version 1.6 and things r cool.
So, how can I completely remove the old version of Mozilla?
oh shite it was too late...
i manually deleted some of the old mozilla's libraries...
and now... when i rpm -e mozilla
it failed on dependencies...
how can i undelete those files?
I did it in a terminal...
well, if rpm -e mozilla said that it failed, im guessing, most likely, something from the 1.6 went too.
why not just install 1.6 again, if you have problems?
or just manually, search for mozilla files, and then delete, and then install again.
