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.

Strange problem. We setup inittab to start X in the following way:
1:2345:respawn:/bin/su - joe "/usr/bin/startx"
All was working fine until we changed joe's shell from bash to tcsh and now at boot up we get:
userclientrc=/home/joe/.xinitrc: Command not found.
userserverrc=/home/joe/.xserverrc: Command not found.
sysclientrc=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc: Command not found.
sysserverrc=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/xserverrc: Command not found.
defaultclient=/usr/X11R6/bin/xterm: Command not found.
defaultserver=/usr/X11R6/bin/X: Command not found.
defaultclientargs=: Command not found.
defaultserverargs=: Command not found.
clientargs=: Command not found.
serverargs=: Command not found.
userclientrc: Undefined variable.
If I startup as root in a bash shell and then execute "su - joe" and then execute startx it works fine. Although right after we su to joe we get:
Warning: no access to tty (Inappropriate ioctl for device).
Thus no job control in this shell.
What is causing this problem? I know the obvious joke here, I guy goes to his doctor and says it hurts when I do this. The doctor says don't do that. Any way it would be nice to start this user off in tcsh. Thanks for your time.
