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.

Today there was a security update for the X System on SUSE 10, I didn't have a problem with it, but my dad did. I'm not completely sure that this is related to the update, but after he updated, his xorg.conf file was missing. I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem. Also, is there an easy way to regenerate the xorg.conf file? For now I just took the xorg.conf.install file and renamed it xorg.conf.
FWIW ... Yes, I apparently had this issue or something like it. Upon a reboot, X was completely hosed, so I just used a recent backup to fix it. Unfortunately, I had made some changes since that backup that required me to play with it a lot.
But, other issues have arisen, and I found the need to reinstall the ATI driver. Now I can't get 3d accel working at all, yet I had had no problems at all doing so previously. None of the variations of the install process for this have worked. I am guessing this has something to do with the patch that was installed, but I haven't a clue what.
Interesting that you mention that. Sax2 won't (or wouldn't) run. It seems to be loading everything and then ... nothing. Not in the process list either. Tried it both from within YaST and at the CLI.
Same thing happened with me. I never did end up getting the correct configuration in the xorg.conf file. Since I didn't find a quick solution, I ended up backing everything up and doing a fresh install.
One funny thing though, I installed the ATI propriety driver after I reformatted and now I can't access SaX2 at all.
