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 my first post in this awesome forum, i wish that i collect the most bebefits from here.
I need to use some Music software like winamp, but i don't have any GUI in my server, only the black screen.
I need to make some internal sound system in my building, so i need that software to manage my playlist in 24 hours around the day.
Thanks in advance.
i think that mp3blaster is fine, but really i have many problems with it,
the first and man problem is there is no sound although the volume and the mixer is 100%, please see the attached picture.

also, i need to make some script to play a specific sound at a certain time, then i need to kill that process.
Make sure your sound device is supported in a base installation of the "un-mentioned" flavor of Linux your server is running. It is possible you need to to compile modules to get it running. The command: lspci -vv may help determine the sound device(s) installed.
To give a little more direction to what has already been suggested:
Make sure alsa-utils is installed, when installing with a package manager...other necessary packages like alsa-base will be installed. After installation, run command: alsamixer to configure channels. In some instances as is with my Audigy 2ZS audio card, some channels need to be enabled but muted for sound to come through, so playing with mute on/off is often required. Once you have sound after setting up alsamixer, run command as root or sudo: alsactl store to save the new settings.
