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.

libpng-1.6 requires probably rebuild a big number of packages.
If that was all it took, we'd have it. For reasons unknown to anyone but themselves, the PNG developers like to make libpng a complete moving target, requiring everything to be ported to the new version. Whatever the great new features are, I don't think they are worth it. Have a look around online for how that one breaks virtually all existing code and I think you'll get the same idea.

- vlc - matter of choice, I believe that MPlayer plays everything I need, but I like vlc better;
- minidlna - there is no media server in our current tree, so I rely on SBo, but it would be nice to have one in current tree;
- audacity - sound record, I don't believe we have a GUI alternative in current tree;
- transmission - ktorrent is fine but what if we don't use KDE?
- xarchive - the same, we have ark but what if we don't use KDE too?
