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 cant seem to get mozplugger to bring up the mplayer plugin because i cant get mplayer installed. Heres the deal.
i have installed the w32codecs, no problem.
and i have installed vlc installed and it works when i play a movie file on my hard drive but i cant get mplayer installed and vlc or totem (it works too) to play any streaming media from the web. i thought that totem depended on mplayer, but totem works.
nothing comes up. so i thought i would just get the regular mplayer . i have the nerim testing sources in sources.list. but here is what i get when i try to
sudo apt-get install mplayer-386.
Depends: libavcodeccvs but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libc6 (>=2.3.2.ds1-21) but 2.3.2.ds1-20ubuntu13 is to be installed
Depends: libfontconfig1 (>=2.3.0) but 2.2.3-4ubuntu7 is to be installed
Depends: libpostproc0 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libvorbis0a (>=1.1.0) but 1.0.1-1 is to be installed
Depends: libxvidcore4 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: xmms but it is not going to be installed
i either need the mplayer plugin to work with mozilla-firefox, or for VLC to work in firefox or even totem.
something, anything.. .that will stream video for me from firefox.
any takers ?
