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.

We'd better tool up. The old mc2 was for 32-bits. There are a few bugs in it but it should work for those needing 32 bit compilation on a 64 bit machine.
[Note: May 4, Found installer bugs in the mc2 src d/load. Path to panic version of mc2 was added so the stuff could update before being installed and pkg-config string replaces individual includes and libs now. Sorry about that. Should work now.]
But today's amazing journey into Mad Computer Science is...
There's a utility called 'glib-compile-resources' that takes an xml file that is basically a list of resources such as glade ui files, and it outputs c code to embed the data in the application. It's messy to use, but it works.
There may be another messy gtk/glib utility to create these xml files that 'glib-compile-resources' can use, but if there is here's another one that may or may not be easier to use.
New-Make ready for hyperjump and KDE Menu's How-To
This is somewhat advanced stuff but.. maybe not. It might also appeal to anyone who has a little talent for tinkering who needs to set up a KDE menu for an application that doesn't have one. See warning below, however.
Last of the first generation new-make installer/uninstallers (probably).
Usage example that installs and uninstalls a dummy application and icons into the KDE menus.
