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 got SMGL(sourcemage), compiled kernel, compiled xfree, compiled everything. X ran all fine, DRI was running, all was cool. I got kernel 126.96.36.199, modules for the gfx compiled(all intel modules to be sure.. i810, i830..). Then one nice evening, instead of halting the X server(ctrl-alt-backstab), I made mistake to interrupt the server using ctrl-c in the console i started it(at least that's why i think it got ruined, because I havent installed anything in a while and used the X server many times before).
next time i tried to start Xfree, the whole system froze completely.. no messages in log about some misfunction that i could find. so i triffled with it, and with DRI turned off, it runs. I have NO idea wtf has happened nor where to look(there is no message in logs). The system also freezes when the DRI is off, I'm in X and try glxinfo. I've event re-installed kernel modules & checked md5 sums of the whole system.. nothing seems to be wrong, but there definitely is.
