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.

ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libcdio_paranoia.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've searched on the forums and on search engines and can't find any information.
What library has this? Where do I get it for my 32 bit Slackware 14.1?
Every other kind of video file seems to play just fine, but mkv's (made with windows, so far...haven't been able to test on one ripped on linux) have a second or two hesitation/pause every few seconds making trying to watch a mkv movie a PITA.
Yes, cdio was installed from the time I installed 14.1. I've also installed libcdio-paranoia (I cobbled it together as a txz) but it made no difference in the playability of an mkv...because it still had the hesitation and when I did ffmpeg -i it now told me an libass file was missing, yet all of these are installed *and* they're 'statically' installed too, as per alienBOB's vlc installation script and all.
When I did the ldd thing, nothing happened, it simply came back to the bash prompt with no information at all.
I'm going to uninstall alienBOB's vlc and see if a 'stock' vlc does the same trouble (it did before, but I've done more things since, so maybe something different will happen).
showed me all the libraries I had with/for ffmpeg and libcdio and libcdio-paranoia were there.
I re-downloaded just to make sure I had the 32 bit and I do.
It just doesn't make sense, to me, that mp4's, avi's work okay but not the other (I'm trying to rip an mkv on my system to see if one made on a linux box will work...if I could get HandBrake to work, but it keeps segfaulting on me).
Oops...forgot to mention about that. When it was first suggested to try it, it didn't even start because of the libcdio-paranoia thing. *Now* though, it is working and plays mkv's (at least the one so far) just fine but vlc won't play it because it still has the original problem with mkv's.
