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.

Hey when I install slack I have no problems with my sound... (Nforce2) when installed the 2.6.2 kernel and compiled it.... and now everytime I start my computer up it complains that it is missing modules and this is a fatal error for alsa. When I startup X and load xmms it works find but as soon as I try to load more than one program that uses the sound it gives me an error that its not available.
I donīt know much about alsa but was kind of under the impression that is job was īsound serverī so more than one program could make sound at the same time.
I guess its not working!
Sorry I donīt have the exact modules its complaining about but I am at work... if it helps I can put add to the post tomorrow.
yeah. Everything related to sound is the best I think. The alsa drivers get updated all the time so you want them to be modules anyway (so you can just replace the modules w/o recompiling the whole kernel).
