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 have installed OpenSuSe 10.2 with realplayer 10 on a AMD 64 bit machine with 1G Ram.
Sound and video is OK in most applications (amarok, mplayer) but it is terrible in RealPlayer 10. The sound and also video (e.g. from news.bbc.co.uk) is choppy. The same when I open a MP3 file on my PC.
The video does not open in Firefox 64 bit: when I click on a movie a separate window opens first with control buttons which are greyed out later. When I select Launch in a stand alone player, I can play the RAM file with chopped sound/video, but it stops e.g. after 25 seconds of in total e.g. 2 minutes. (MP3 also stops long before the end)
What should I do to get this solved? I am a beginner on Linux and Suse.
I can't tell if this is your problem, but I get "choppy" sound with RP10 for streaming sites that send too fast for my internet connection to handle. In other words, some streams are too fast for a "slow" internet connection. (I've tried increasing the buffer size, but that doesn't help very much.)
Here's another possibility: I just started RealPlayer 10 on my notebook, any my whole system almost locked-up. After some (painfully slow) investigation, I discovered that RP was interrogating my system's DVD, and (because I had no disk in it) it had triggered a invalid response/retry loop which was "eating" all my processor cycles. Putting a disk (just an old data DVD, not even a "media" disk) in the drive fixed that problem. (Since the drive was locked while RP tried to access it, I had to reboot before I could get the drive open to put the disk into it.)
I don't actually think that this is your problem, but you might want to see what happens if you put a disk in your drive.
I did have succes with aoss $REALPLAYBIN "$@". All went well and I watched a few video's of Rollingstone.com. But the next day, watching the same site something else happened: After clicking on a link of a song, RealPlayer starts, starts buffering and then disappears completely. When starting RealPlayer from a terminal, it reads: (realplay.bin:7877): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
I use 64-bits Ubuntu 7.04. How to solve this?
