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.

I use Redhat 8.0, and I have been experiencing problems opening redhat-config-packages. It used to work before, but i am not having any idea as to what might have happened.
When using the gui based Applications -> System Settings -> Packages, linux prompts me for entering the root password, and authenticates it but nothing shows up and theres no error message in any open console or terminal.
When I give the command "redhat-config-packages", in the terminal, it asks me for the root password, and gives me the following error:
(process:5532): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
(MainWindow.py:5532): Gtk-WARNING **: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/engines/libredmond95.so: undefined symbol: gtk_rc_style_get_type
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 121, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/locale.py", line 372, in setlocale
return _setlocale(category, locale)
locale.Error: locale setting not supported
There's one reference I feel might be useful to mention. I am connected to the internet through a cable modem, and my ip address is dynamic. I started to get a new error when I login to linux, saying that
"linux could not look up for the IP address (so and so hostname), and some gnome functions might not work properly. The problem can be rectified by adding 'hostname' to /etc/hosts "
I thought that might be the problem for redhat-config-packages but even though i add the hostname to /etc/hosts, i still have the same problem. redhat-config-packages wont open up.
I dont remember making any major changes to linux recently, but yes - i tried to install netscape, but couldnt install because of some conflicts. However i feel it might not have affected redhat-config-packages.
