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.

Hi. I'm trying to run Quake 2 in GL mode using GLX, and I'm getting some errors that sound like Quake cannot find the libraries even though there in the same directory as the binary. Here's the session message:
ref_gl version: GL 0.01
libglide2x.so: cannot opem shared object file: No such file or directory
ref_gl::R_Init() - could not load "libMesaGL.so.2"
I'm using a GeForce 4 MX 420 with the latest kernel and GLX drivers from Nvidia. The reason I have to turn off sound is I get this error when sound tries to initialize:
sound sampling rate: 11025
The soundcard is a SoundBlasterLive Value! using emu10k1 module. I've tried other sampling rates with no success. The sound works for other games like TuxRacer and PrBoom. If someone knows how to rectify either of these then please let me know. I would rather get the video fixed. I can live without the sound for the time being.
