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 just did a fresh install of Slackware 11. I have everything configured the way I had it on 10.2, but I'm having a problem with my audio. The chipset for the on board audio is detected by ALSA, and I have changed my user permissions for the audio. But still no luck. I took a screenshot because I noticed something that says Master [Off]. Could this have something to do with it?
Also, KMix likes to mute things as well. I spent almost a week trying to make my sound behave... finally, it turned out that KMix was muting the External Amplifier I kept unmuting with alsamixer. This, in turn, caused the stock artsd to crash with SIGSEGV11, and a custom-compiled artsd to crash with SIGABRT6. Unmuting one stinking setting fixed the problem permanently.
