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 installed the flashplayer plugin in mozilla on redhat 9. Now anytime I go to a web page which needs the plugin, mozilla freezes (and almost freezes the whole system). I have to bring up a terminal window and kill the mozilla process but this takes a long time as it seems mozilla/flashplayer is taking over almost all the systems capacity.
Crashed_Again: I ran mozilla from a shell. There was no output after going to a flash site. However immediately after executing, before surfing anywhere, I got the message (QFA)Talkback error: Can't initialize. Does that mean anything?
Swift&Smart: I am not talking about "slow", I am talking about nothing happening at all, no movie. And the entire system grinds to a halt. I move the mouse cursor to bring up the kde panel and it takes a long long long time to come up.
I thought is was supposed to work like that. There are issues with the unsuppored Flash plugin described here. My system monitor is always running just so I can end Mozilla after it stalls. I also get choppy audio with flash (another known problem related to which audio driver is being used). In theory you could use CrossOver and then use the Windows flash plugin.
I was using the official flash plugin. The installation instructions there only mention redhat 6 and 7, I think, so maybe I should not be surprised that redhat 9 gives problems ... on the other hand other people seem to have it working so there must be something unusual about my system, though it is pretty standard...
depends. my guess it's a hardware resource issue. you by chance playing music at the same time when going to a flash site with a flash movie that has sound? happens to me in kde on my laptop. a couple of ways to get around this in kde. actually one way that's not really a full workaround.
instead of using the command /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla in the shell, use:
this will mix audio from mozilla in with other audio that may be going on. now this isn't a full workaround since this doesn't seem to work when using a desktop shortcut. in kde, the only thing i knew that worked with this issue was using konq, since it had native piping through artsdsp. if this doesn't apply to you, ignore and my apologies.
