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 was happily getting along with 9.3 pro when I noticed 10.1 alpha 2 was out with the new KDE . So I get the 5 cd set and try and install it. First as an upgrade. then as a new install. It hangs after install. when I try and log in and then start kde or gnome I get a string of erros. Most notibly that the Display isn't set and can't be found
xset unable to open display
xset unable to open display
xsetroot unable to open display
ksmserver cannot connect to X
ERROR: couldn't connect to DCOP server
can't connect kdeinit!
then I get the shutdown scripts....
I've tried export DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0 and 1 at the end
I've tried to put in the above with or without "
I've tried set instead of export
I also tried xhost +localhost
that didn't work either. I'm about out of ideas anyone else???
Can you tell me if there is much of anything special in 10? I have 9.3 pro and it works good. before I formatted I had it set with superkaramba,Kat,apt4rpm,synaptec and a few other things like all the media codecs.
No, but you can check the release notes, see if any of the big features or changes apply to you. We can't tell you whether or not you want any of the changes. It is up to you. I would, but I always stay up to date, I would be more up to date if I knew how to compil emy own Kernel, but I don't yet.
You could always upgrade, and keep all the installs you have now, but just get the packages upgraded. Check Suse.com for the release notes, maybe you do want to, maybe you don't care. My guess is, if you have to ask, you don't care, and thus don't need to upgrade.
i am a new user of suse,
i once installed suse 9.3, but soon after that i get the 10.0, i am not sure their difference, but i think 9.3 is really more professional, just go online update patches it will be up-to-date.
