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 have a Creative CIMR-100 IR receiver. Since I could not get the rpm version of lirc (0.6.6) does not appear to work (at least with this hardware), I have built the latest (Ver 0.7) from source.
- removed lirc rpm
- built and installed lirc from source (lirc.org) -- ver 0.7.0
- Since this hardware requires no kernel module, I simply pointed /dev/lirc to my serial port (/dev/ttyS2)
- copied appropriate remote conf file to /etc/lircd.conf
- ran lircd using: lircd -d /dev/ttyS2
- ran irw and I was able to see the correct messages being echoed to the screen -- ie. EVERYTHING is working so far.
However, when I installed xmms-lirc it required liblirc and attempted to install liblirc rpm as well (ver 0.6.6). So I did a --nodeps during rpm installation of xmms-lirc rpm.
BUT I get the following message when I start xmms and enable the lirc plugin (under General tab):
xmms: could not connect to socket
xmms: Connection refused
LIRC Plugin 1.4: could not init LIRC support
Could someone help me debug this issue? How can I test why a socket connection is refused? Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
