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.

before you tell me that this has been discussed before i'm telling you that i have tried everything i could find and still no result!
the problem is this:
i did a clean install of slackware 12.1 , it is a full installation, everything seems to be working just right except for a sound problem
when i try playing mp3 or video in every program that uses the xine engine i get sound skips and stuttering. if i try to play in mplayer for example it works just fine... i've tryed increasing buffers but still no go. i don't get any errors, just sound skips.
i read on another forum that it might be something related with the time which by the way keeps running behind. even if i do set the time is still plays with skips... the sound card is intel alc882 as given by the system.
any ideas would be highly appreciated cause this is driving me nuts
thanks and all the best!
