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.

Hi there, sorry if question is trivial, I started Linux three weeks ago...
I am trying to install my nvidia drivers and it seems I have a problem of compatibility between the kernel-source and the kernel :
Here is the list of my kernels:
[sjaglin@Stephane ~]$ urpmq -y kernel
problem reading hdlist or synthesis file of medium "update_source"
And here is the message I get in my log:
ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.
If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
I thought my kernel is 2.6 as well as my kernel-source?
I am not sure what to do next, any ideas?? Thanx!
Its probably one of the errors in the mandrake 10.2 beta dustro. THey have a lot of fixes that they have done, but the distro isn't ready yet, i would switch to 10.1 official for now and when mdk 10.2 comes in april, download that. I'm debating whether or not I should download the beta, but I decided to wait the few weeks.
I think that if you go to 10.1 you won't have a problem.
