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.

Hello i am new here. anyways here is my problem i did some updates in FC9 188.8.131.52-45 i386 and well i rebooted and then tried to recheck for updates and it give me this.
@localhost ~]$ yum update
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
/usr/lib/librpmdb-4.4.so: undefined symbol: _!lock_ve
Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jun 15 2008, 18:24:51)
[GCC 4.3.0 20080428 (Red Hat 4.3.0-8)]
If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
this is the output after i do:
[root@localhost ~]# python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Jun 15 2008, 18:24:51)
[GCC 4.3.0 20080428 (Red Hat 4.3.0-8)] on linux2
