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 everyone, I have RedHat 9 running on a system with just basic X-Windows and Fluxbox. I had the system running to where I would log in on X-Windows, then start the RealVNCServer, then connect to it via my windows box. But I changed the order in which things worked, I now start the RealVNCServer via SSH, that way I do not need to have a monitor hooked up to the system.
After I changed this, the color depth of the RealVNC connection dropped dramatically. I have a feeling this is because I did not actually log in to X-Windows at all. Does someone know anything about this? Or know of a way I can set maybe a default color depth for X?
I am not too sure what happened, but last night, I started up a regular vncserver, just "vncserver" as a user, and the colors were back to my 8 bit! I opened up mozilla through fluxbox, minimised my vncviewer on my windows box, went back some time later, and the colors were back up to a usable 24-bit?!?!
I have no clue what is going on?? looks ok now though! Anyone know what might cause this?
hmm, good point! i just checked my version, and its 3.3.7, but that doesnt necessarily mean thats not the cause.
I'm confused as to why it would change the color depth in the middle of the session still. That just doesnt make sense, that seems like it would be something that would happen at the time in which either the client or the server were started.
