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.

While trying to extract audio from an avi and convert it into an mp3 (from ac3) using mencoder (from MPlayer-1.0pre7), I hit a problem. Among my output was:
MPlayer was compiled without libmp3lame support
It happens that I do have urpmi installed and configured. I just prefer compiling my own packages, or, if I am going to use an rpm, doing my own dependency hunting. But to get to the point, I did fall back on urpmi after posting here. It installed mplayer (pre7 from plf). I still received the same error message about mplayer's compilation.
I'd be willing to bet, however, that you've hit on the solution when you recommend installing the -devel package. I'll try it out today and post the outcome here. Thanks again.
... yeah, it's looking good; ./configure has detected libmp3lame for mencoder.

Ok, I installed the libmp3lame, mplayer1, mplayer codecs, and second codecs esential, now when try to install teh Mpalyer Gui, I get the error, that it's missing the skins, so I try to install the skins, and I get the error missing Mplayer Gui, so, how the heck do I get one of them (actually both) to install? I installed the other because according to the errors I need them first. or so I think I figured out.
