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.

Can you elaborate on where to find these 70 fixes?!
I went ahead and installed, as upgrade, Mdk 10.1 Official this evening.
Then I updated my easy urpmi sources for 10.1 Official.
Then I ran Mandrake update--and it only found five items, dealing with gaim and perl, that were updatable!
Meanwhile, my mouse won't scroll, just as with 10.1 Community. But at least with the Community release, I was able to make it work ok by switching it from USB to PS2 port. Now it won't scroll on either one!
Sorry for all the exclamation marks but --I'm feeling pretty PERTURBED!!
Any help greatly appreciated. I want to fix the USB at least--then see if I want to keep 10.1. If my mouse won't scroll, period, I'm going back to 9.2 --again. Or maybe I should say AGAIN!!
Do urpmi.update -a and then urpmi --auto --auto-select.
I did that, and this was the result:
[root@bodhisattva jon]# urpmi --auto --auto-select
unable to retrieve pathname for removable medium "Installation CD 2 (cdrom2)"
unable to retrieve pathname for removable medium "Installation CD 4 (KDE 3.3) (cdrom4)"
unable to retrieve pathname for removable medium "Installation CD 3 (cdrom3)"
unable to retrieve pathname for removable medium "Installation CD 1 (cdrom1)"
medium "Installation CD 1 (cdrom1)" is not selected
(P. S. I checked and all the CD paths appear OK and also the ones for the remote mirrors.)
Originally posted by Micro420 I updated my computer with the whole list above and here's what works for me now:
Konqueror is fixed
USB is not a problem anymore
KDTV now works and does not randomly reboot my computer.
Glad indeed to hear these fixes worked so well.
But are they available only to those subscribing to Mandrakeonline?
I'm a member of MandrakeClub, and have no objection to subscribing to Mandrakeonline as well, but am wary because there have been SERIOUS payment problems connected with Mandrake (not their fault, but the fault of the service they employ for money transactions--see separate thread), and I can't afford to be charged, say, $2,000 for what should cost $20.
I went to MandrakeClub home page and saw only three or four updates of any kind mentioned there, none of which probably affect my setup.
Distribution: Mac OS X Leopard 10.6.2, Windows 2003 Server/Vista/7/XP/2000/NT/98, Ubuntux64, CentOS4.8/5.4
These fixes SHOULD be available for everyone. The way I updated my Mandrake is because I am subscribed to and have the Mandrakeonline feature. It just automatically updated everything for me. In theory, you should be able to go to the Mandrake Control Center and check for updates in there and it SHOULD have them all there. Unless, of course, the package you received already has these fixes built in and this was specifically only a download problem for members.
As for payment problems for Mandrake, I have no idea about that. I recently joined the silver membership about a week ago and they charged the correct amount on my credit card. Of course, if they charge you $2,000 on your credit card, you could always call up your credit card company and they'll straighten it out.
OK, I'm outa here on this 10.1 business. I don't have time for this. I'd rather spend a day or so getting back to 9.2 where I can actually use my computer than to mess with this not-ready version. I can't even get the updates people are talking about.
Very disappointed, bitter, and frustrated at this point.
and looking into the update manager again, I got lots of updates presented, basically, everything you find in ftp://sunsite.cnlab-switch.ch/mirror...ates/10.1/RPMS that I had older versions of installed.
(For instance, I didn't have apache2 installed, so I wasn't presented with any updates for it.)
