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 recently had an issue where firefox (mozilla) failed to work due to a gtk error (I swear it just started happening after an ldconfig, firfox worked like a charm previously in kde). I attempted to aleviate the issue by doing a swaret --upgrade kde, which in turn wanted to upgrade to xfree4.4 so I did this as well. This did not fix the problem so I simply downloaded the non-gtk version of the browser and got it to work. Now though, any time the screensaver starts up, even in the screensaver preview window, XFree just crashes to the bash prompt with a Sig 11 error....WTF???!!!! The only thing I can think of is that I had loaded SDL librarys including sdl_mixer previously to this entire fiasco. Here is the tail end of the XFree log file in /var/log, note that there were no other errors in the entire log file and directly after this error the sig 11 error occurred.
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/, removing from list!

Yea, I don't know, I am useing gentoo and I did a stage 2 install, I updated the portage tree fine, and did an emerge -u world.

Could not init to font path /usr/share/fonts/local
