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 just installed Suse Linux 9.2 from scratch. Im using the Gnome Desktop and i try to use XMSS to play my flac files but wont play (suprise suprise). I checked YAST and i already installed the Flac Audio Codecs when i installed the system...
Also the default player for them(totem video player) doesnt work playing them either. I thought everything would work since when i installed the system i checked the little flac audio codec boxes fromt the YAST program.
I go to the flac site and theres nothing there that helps. Theres Redhat and RPM's for other distro's but no Suse RPM. I read other threads on here abotu it and they say "use apt-get" and i dont have apt-get.
So What the hell? The audiocodec that yast supplys is total crap and doesnt work or the players that the distro comes with wont support hte codec? Or maybe I have to do something to make it work. Yet since i downloaded it for free theres no support...soooo anyone have flac working on there suse linux box?
You could try to use the package that packman provides. Add a packman server to your installation sources and install with YaST. For a HowTo, have a look in the sticky thread about YaST update sources.
