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 Kubuntu 6.06, and I can't seem to find documentation for Adept anywhwere on my system, or anywhere online for that matter. If someone can point me to a user guide, I would appreciate it. Alternatively, if the documentation is out of date, does anyone know how to tell adept to ignore an update to an installed package? I had a lot of trouble getting the ATI drivers working, and I don't want to update the fglrx-kernel-source package now that I finally have things working. The icon in the system tray always says "1 update available", even though I told it to "do nothing" with this package. I'd like to filter it out completely if possible. If I change my /etc/apt/sources.list and comment out the repository that contains the package, the update icon disappears, but it comes back when I turn it on to hunt for other stuff. I also edited /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common and added fglrx to the "DISABLED_MODULES" list, but that didn't seem to do anything. Does adept use this file? If so do I need to add the entire package name to the list? I'm used to rpm based systems like Suse & Red Hat, so I'm still a little fuzzy when it comes to .deb, apt, adept, synaptic, aptitude, etc.
Thanks for the tip. I've been using synaptic to install/remove stuff; it's just that the adept update icon was showing up in the system tray. I discovered I can hide that particular icon in the system tray so it'll quit bugging me about an update I don't want. That being said, is there a way to have synaptic notify me when updates are available, or will I just have to run it periodically & check for myself? Usually, I like being informed when updates come out, just not for that particular package.
I already removed adept, I don't need multiple package managers. The update-notifier appears to be what I'm looking for. Now I just have to decide if I want all those extra gnome libraries complicating things. I never seem to manage to get by with just KDE or just Gnome. Thanks for the info.
I'm getting the same problem and finally my 3d accelerations is working and I don't want to update fglrx packages. but... I tried to remove adept notifier and install update-notifier but this last dont dock on kicker panel so I dont know about updates in real time like adept.
do you know how to fix this, and dock the update-notifier like in SuSE Linux?
