Linux Book

Step by Step Linux Guide is a book that is written by M.B.G. Suranga De Silva to provide a single reference for network administration in a Linux environment. Beginners as well as experienced users should find the information they need to cover nearly all important administration activities required to manage a Linux network configuration.

It contains real world implementations of sendmail, qpopper, jabber, NoCatAuth, squid, iptables, DNS BIND, samba, apache etc… with detailed examples and explanation.

Step by Step Linux Guide, describes the system administration aspects of using Linux. It is intended for people who know nothing about system administration. This book doesn’t tell you how to install Linux since it is very straight forward but it gives you real world mail, DNS, proxy, web, messaging etc… server installations and configurations.

System administration is all the things that one has to do to keep a computer system in a useable shape. It Includes things like backing up files and restoring , installing new programs, creating accounts for users, making certain that the filesystem is not corrupted, and so on.

There is no one official Linux distribution, so different people have different setups, and many people have a setup they have built up themselves. This book is not targeted at any one distribution, even though I use Red Hat Linux 8 and 9 the contents can be applied to any distribution.

Author is planning to give 2 hours free session with each book and apart from that he is willing to arrange a full-fledged training course on Linux.

Answer for the Fedora Core 4 installation (vedio card probing) problem

Running anaconda, the Fedora Core System installer - please wait...

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 827, in ?
skipMouseProbe = skipmouseprobe)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/xserver.py", line 79,
in probeHW
videohw = videocard.VideoCardInfo(skipDDCProbe=skipDDCProbe)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/videocard.py", line
512, in __init__
if vc.getCardData().has_key("DRIVER"):
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/videocard.py", line
175, in getCardData
return Video_cardDBLookup(self.cardData["NAME"])
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/rhpl/videocard.py", line
34, in Video_cardsDBLookup
card = Video_cardslist[thecard]
KeyError: 'S3 Trio3D\nS3 Trio64 3D'
install exited abnormally
[snip]

It is a built in video


Answer

1. Invoke the installer with "linux headless". This gives a text mode install.
2. When the system tries to reboot after, Kudzu will fail with the same
message. Edit the file /usr/share/hwdata/Cards inserting the blank line.
3. Rerun kudzu and continue.

Don't use linux pci=off, it skips configuring much more than your video.
