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've just installed SUSE 10.0 (OSS) and all went well... me thinks! Desktop is KDE.
My PC has two sound cards - onboard sound and a PCI card. Onboard sound uses the intel_x80 driver, the PCi is a MAudio Delta 24/96 using ICE1712 driver.
I have some cheap speakers attached to the onboard sound.
The system sounds can be heard (shutdown, etc) but when I use hydrogen a warning message appears that "no sound cards configured or no sound device...". I start up QJackctl before hydrogen and I can start the sound server... but still get the warning message. Worse still is when I continue (message allows me to continue or abort) hydrogen crashes...
Regarding the "no sound cards" configured I can open the Envy24Control (application for the MAudio sound card) and all is well.
I've run alsaconf and can select either of the two detected sound cards and configure these... still to no avail with hydrogen.
Yes. If you like music programs, you should try this live-cd: http://www.dynebolic.org/
This is a full home-studio, from recording to cd burning.
Oh, btw, i also have an ICE1712, the audiophile one. Very good chipset .

Hmmm.. I turned off the arts sound in kcontrol and rebooted.. but hydrogen still shuts down on me...
If I select the onboard sound in my jack setup then hydrogen gives me the same error as before "Direct access to the Sound Device Not Possible": No sound card available or sound support is not configured yet... I can continue but hydrogen bombs out.
If I select the MAudio card I don't get the above message when I start hydrogen but it still bombs out.
BTW I downloaded that dynebolic iso and tried it - very nice.. at least hydrogen works there without a hitch!
If I start hydrogen from x-term as such: hydrogen -V -d alsa (or jack) then when I go past the first info screen and then the app bombs with the following message:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_construct NULL not valid
Well I installed from source and also needed to install libsndfile and flac from source as well (???)... Still have the same issue - Hydrogen bombs.
Strangely enough I had it working once a few days ago. I turned off arts in kcontrol (is now permanently off). I didn't start jack and then fired up hydrogen... it opened ok. Then I selected jack audio driver from within hydrogen. I shut down hydrogen to do something else and when I tried it again it once again bombed and has done so since.
