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.

Thought I'd start this one; I just installed Eric's KDE 4.6 beta2 package. So far looks pretty good, although I haven't really had a chance to play with it much. There must have been an upgrade to kwebkitpart since the version at Slackbuilds.org went up; it's much smoother and one really annoying issue for which I filed a bug report is now solved. KDE has changed the g$dd@#med settings dialog again; can't they leave it alone for two consecutive releases?
I had the same Akonadi issues Eric reported, and my ultimate solution was the same. Contrary to Eric's concerns this will NOT nuke your e-mail if you're a Kmail user; it's safe in ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/mail.
One big problem so far: the new Kmail won't send or receive email. At all. I'm not sure if this is a bug or something I'm doing wrong; I have a shout for help in over at the KDE forum.
- Konqueror doesn't save proxy setting changes, so by default it's always direct connection
- If HAL is not disabled, if you plug USB flash drive, it will appear twice. I haven't tried if HAL is disabled though
Here the same - smtp doesn't work.
No error messages, just messages stay in outbox without any action.
Pop3 works fine.
I did fresh kde setup on newly created user and it didn't help.
Does somebody use smtp in kde-4.6-beta2?
I'm working through the problem over on the KDE forum. So far no success. Part of the problem I was having with pop is that the new Akonadi requires Kwallet to save the password... can't say I'm thrilled about that. That level of security is only necessary if you're sharing a computer with someone you don't trust, so in my opinion it ought to be optional.
I also just noticed something else... where the hell is Knotebook???
After running for a few hours i am not able to open any new apps if i open the console then wait for the problem to occur i get
Maximum number of clients reachedMaximum number of clients reachedMaximum number of clients reachedMaximum number of clients reachedk3b: cannot connect to X server :0.0
kde(2695): Communication problem with "k3b" , it probably crashed.
Error message was: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown" : " "The name org.k3b.k3b was not provided by any .service files" "
At the moment i only have Firefox and the console open plus the kde tray apps (kmix Klipper etc).
