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.

Our company is working on installing a new software package on a customer's AIX server. This package requires the use of Apache Web Server.
The system is AIX 4.2.1 (old, but very time consuming to update). Customer does not necessarily wish to upgrade their box. We are trying to install Apache 1.3 and are coming across an error. It cannot find (shr_comm.o) and complains about libpthread.a.
From what I have been able to gather the pthread library was completely modified in 4.3 of AIX and apache was designed for 4.3, however I have heard of people successfully getting this version to work on 4.2.1. I did try compiling from src with the gcc compiler and met up with a successful compile, yet I still get the exact same complaint when trying to run httpd.
If anyone has any ideas on what can be done to fix this issue please let me know.
Question? could 4.3 pthread libraries be moved to a 4.2 machine without causing problems?
