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 decided to put together a low-end solaris box from parts i saved from my old workplace. just for fun and nostalgia. everything is running decently (even on 64 megs of ram), but i just can't log in remotely from my ubuntu 12.04 laptop.
if i try logging in from an emulated cde login screen (vmware, solaris 9) using the 'choose host' menu item, it works just fine. however, when i try to use xephyr (Xephyr :1 -screen 1024x768 -ac -query 10.10.10.200), the login screen displays fine, i can log in, but then i'm thrown back to the login screen.
i used to have the same issue with a unixware box some time ago, that's when i learned that i have to add the '-ac' switch, but it doesn't help on solaris.
affirmative. all other remote services (rsh, telnet, ssh etc.) are working, even smc (which surprised me, since it's usually a nightmare to get working). what's more, i recently installed owacomp (a backport of openwindows for solaris 9 and 10) and i can log in to openwindows just fine.
just so anyone who stumbles upon this thread knows, the issue was caused most probably by a bug in the version of cde on solaris 9 u8. after patching the system (with the latest patch set, can't remember its date/number off the top of my head) the issue simply vanished.
silly me, after doing years of administration work, forgetting to patch my system.. serves me right. :) anyway, marking the thread as solved.
