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.

Recently I have replaced my fried AMD 2100+ with a Palomino core to a 2100+ tThunderbird. Upon doing so Mplayer would no longer work. I figured this was because it was compiled with the old processor. I decided to back anything important up and reinstall slack. After 2 fresh installs, remakeing the partitions with fdisk, mplayer still gives me an error of compile the it with a different processor then I have in now. Below is the error message.

MPlayer interrupted by signal 4 in module: video_read_properties
- MPlayer crashed by an 'Illegal Instruction'.
It usually happens when you run it on a CPU different than the one it was
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
disassembly. For details, see DOCS/bugreports.html#crash.b.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc
version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/bugreports.html
and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide
this information when reporting a possible bug.
I've accually completely reinstalled slack and downloaded Mplayer again so that im not useing anything from a previous install. I dont think that anything I backed up would affect it. Just /etc (just in case) but im not useing anything from it. It just sits on my fat32 partition. Also my XF86config file and some scripts.
