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'm having problem playing movie files with MPlayer. Picture and sound halts once in a while for moments (1/3-1 sec) while video is playing. I changed cache and audio/video settings to solve this, but so far no luck. It still abruptly halts once in a while (and randomly).
This didn't occur when I was playing files on my old laptop running on SuSE 8.0 with an old version of MPlayer (I believe it was ver. 0.90-rc4). Now I'm running SuSE 8.2, the current version(s) of MPlayer and it does this. Needless to say, I compiled from the source, and I'm NOT using SuSE's botched version.
As far as I know nothing is running in the background that might be causing this halt. This is strange, as MPlayer had been working just fine on my machines.
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
by sync, i meant in reference to the hard drive buffers
flushing. disable sound and try playing like that for a
while and see if it pauses any. if it doesn't, try a different
mplayer -ao help
