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 will explain my problem: I have an nVidia video card that can output to an TV (GeForce 4 MX), and I have an TV, 10 meters far from the computer, conected to the card. I would like to decode videos with a program (xine, for example), output the image to the TV, and have the xine control panel displayed on my primary monitor (the one besides the computer). It seems that neither TwinView nor Xinerama is suited for my purpuse, since I do not want to split my desktop beetwen the two screens. I am using X.Org 6.8.2 configured with 2 separated screens. I believe that to achieve my goal, I would need to do something like activating the XVideo extension and directing the XVideo output to the screen that represents my TV. The problem is that I don't know anything about XVideo (except that it is deactivated on my box), I don't even know if what I want to do is possible.
I have a problem with XFree that I cannot find any info about it: I did not find anything about how to set up DGA when I looked for it, as I cannot find any info about XVideo now.
Xlib: extension "XVideo" missing on display ":0.0".
xvinfo: No X-Video Extension on :0.0
If anyone knows how to do what I want to, or knows where can I find info about XVideo, or knows that it cannot be done, please tell me.
