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.

The description for libusb1 says that it is not compatible with the original libusb-0.1 series. Could having both types installed be causing my sound issues, and if so which one do I remove?
I'm in Fedora 11 (64 bit) and sound worked fine until my non-USB headset died. The new one is USB and every time it gets plugged in my (non-USB) keyboard input stops and some of my (USB) mouse input stops. If I unplug the headset input works again. If I plug the headset back in (without rebooting) I get no sound through it, but the next time my system tries to use sound the keyboard/mouse input goes away. I can only get sound back by rebooting, but as soon as I use sound (xine, youtube, rythymbox) I lose input again. I do not ever get any system sounds - ding at log in, chirps and clicks for windows opening and closing, etc.
Some level of input is there - I can ctrl-alt-backspace to close X and mouse click the reboot option at the log in screen, but I can't type in a browser bar, password entry box, terminal window, etc.
I'm taking distance classes and need sound for some assignments so I need to fix this. I'm willing to post anything needed to help or get ideas, just let me know what and how.
