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 emerged xcdroast .90alpha13 with cdrtools 2. i've activated nonroot user mode. but when i load it, it is soooo slow. The little hour glass cursor comes up and it just takes forever to go to the other screens. Once I get the cd burning, it flies. Anyone have any ideas why it loads so slow??
Now i get an error that says:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 1) app-cdr/eroaster-2.1.0-r1 to /
!!! eroaster-2.1.0.tar.gz: message digests do not match!
!!! eroaster-2.1.0.tar.gz is corrupt or incomplete.

I deleted the file and tried again...same thing. I read something in the gwn about oregonstate.edu having something funny going on. Do I need to change me rsync mirror? Also, I've looked for information about masked and unmasked. Can you explain why the accept_keywords command works and what it means? Thanks so much for the help. I appreciate it.
well I couldn't get eroaster, gcombust, or simplecdrx to find my cdrw. After trying different things with xcdroast, I found that I either need to have a cd in the "read" drive, or else have i file in the "hd" folder for it to read. As long as it can read something, the program works beautifully. Kind of strange but it works.
wha??!!? i wrote a damn long reply.....! it was great...! i was proud of it...! darn!! it's gone!
what i said originally is that you should pick a gentto mirror nearest to you, from the gentoo site, also try usign the original eroaster build, or the 2.0.12 version, assuming they are still listed. maybe there is an error in that r1 ebuild or something, or the source you are dl-ing from
