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.

Just within the past week or so, XMMS won't play when I'm logged in as user, but it works fine if I log in as root. As user, I get the following error message:
Couldn't open audio
Please check that:
1. You have the correct output plugin selected (I do: OSS Driver [libOSS.so]) 2. No other programs [sic] is blocking the soundcard (none are, that I can see) 3. Your soundcard is configured properly (it seems to be)
I tried replacing my user XMMS config file (~/.xmms/config) with the root config file -- changing ownership & permissions -- and it still didn't work.
I had problems with XMMS (and other non-KDE soundcard-using apps) and KDE a while back too. I solved them by going to the KDE Control Centre and turning off the sound server (aRts). I recommend you do the same!
If you don't like the, er, sound of that, you can supposedly make aRts-unaware apps work with aRts by using artsdsp. Haven't tried that myself, though.
