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've been having significant problems getting WineX working in RH9, I'm mainly just trying to get Half Life working.
I checked out current from CVS and compiled (yes, it has OpenGL support compiled in). Seeing that there was a bug in the glib packages for RH9, I updated to the newest versions with RedHat claim fix the bugs.
I have checked and they appear to be exactly what RedHat says should fix the problem.
RPM reports the following glib packages installed:
I get the usual "socket not connected" etc., I just type wineserver -p and that gets it passed it. However, whenever I try to run anything, it fails. I get the same message when I compile Wine-20030503, and try to run Half Life:
fixme:cdrom:CDROM_GetIdeInterface CD-ROM device with major ID 11 not supported
XIO: fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
after 230 requests (228 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
If I run winex with the "-use-pthreads yes" flag, it does get to the menu in HL, but as soon as I click "New game" or another action that starts the game, it crashes, sometimes taking the whole system down with it, other times just X.
If I install the Wine-20030503 RPMs, it works, however when I get in the game, all the walls have no texture, they're just a kind of grey. The humans are all rendered fine, weapons all perfect etc.
Anyone have any suggestions on how I might get WineX (or just plain Wine) working in RH9?
I have been trying to compile wine for RedHat 9 and it works, but I don't think openGL is getting compiled in even by forcing it. You said that you had an earlier version that worked for RedHat 9 and had openGL? Do you still know the link, I would like to run Rhinoceros + some games and need openGL to perform those tasks.
