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'm getting hangs in KDE-4.6.1 from too many sockets being open. Killing X and logging back in temporarily fixes the problem, but I can't seem to find much on a fix. I'm not sure if its KDE or xorg related, since I upgraded both yesterday.
Distribution: Slackware 14 (Server),Suse 13.1 (Desktop),, Mepis on the wifes lappy
Only found one issue so far with 1337. Quite a strange one where the mouse/touchpad combination is quite unresponsive, but only in Firefox. Its fine under normal desktop navigation tasks, and using it with Google Chrome is no problem.
I have (had) similar problems with FF4beta: touchpad scrolling is a no-go. To be honest: It didn't work in Windows either, where I fixed it with a fairly recent driver ( ALPS ) What kind of touchpad do you have?
PS: so if you are using FF4,. it's not a L33T problem, just a FF4.beta problem.
Someone was asking about the new version of Emacs (I can't find the thread/post right now) and it has indeed been added:
Sat Mar 12 21:07:12 UTC 2011
ap/lxc-0.7.4-i486-1.txz: Upgraded. e/emacs-23.3-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
Created the /var/lib/iptraf/ working directory.
The version number of the new release seems a bit gimmicky to me, but oh well.
The recently announced cpupowerutils ( https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/3/11/105 ) needs a shared libpci library which the pciutils package does not provide. Is there any chance to include it?
I see pciutils got upgraded today, shame i didnt request this before.
Not by default.
Switching to Gallium requires Mesa to be rebuilt with -enable-gallium-r600 flag followed by xf86-ati reinstall. I did it 5 minutes ago on Mesa 7.10 and ati from git, so can't say anything about Mesa 7.9 and xf86-ati 6.14. If you would like to ask if my configuration makes working 3D acceleration, the answer is "no" as for now.
