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.

I've been trying to compile a 32-bit wine with the netflix patches on 64-bit Wheezy without using the compholio repository and ran into some issues:
1) I need gstreamer 64-bit no-dev and 32-bit dev packages installed at the same time. Is this possible without
building 32-bit gstreamer from source? In aptitude this appears to be an either/or but not both.
2) A lot of the 32-bit dev packages I needed conflicted due to requiring pkgconfig:i386, like libdbus:i386. I
also have 64-bit packages which required pkconfig:amd64. Is there a multiarch implementation of pkgconfig like gcc
3) Finally, how would I obtain the source package for wine? I would like to look at their configure options.
Is there a multiarch implementation of pkgconfig like gcc
~$ aptitude search pkg-config
p eclipse-cdt-pkg-config - pkg-config support for Eclipse C/C++ development tools
i A pkg-config - manage compile and link flags for libraries
p pkg-config:i386 - manage compile and link flags for libraries
~$ aptitude -s install pkg-config:i386
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 packages upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 23 not upgraded.
Need to get 116 kB of archives. After unpacking 604 kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
pkg-config : Conflicts: pkg-config:i386 but 0.26-1 is to be installed.
pkg-config:i386 : Conflicts: pkg-config but 0.26-1 is installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) pkg-config:i386 [Not Installed]
I did get netflix working using wine stable for 7.0 but it stopped in 7.1. Did not work very long main reason I want to get wine 1.6 compiled and installed is to access movies.netflix.com website and update my cue otherwise I watch netflix on my sony bluray player and big screen tv.
My solution: download the .deb package from compholio, install the necessary dependencies (apt will let you know when you try to install the .deb), install the .deb, then follow the steps in this part of the guide: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Netflix#Wine_installation.
You can also add the Compholio repository to your sources and install the netflix-desktop package directly.
I would've liked to figure out how to build a later version of wine and manually patch it, but no success on that front.
@EDDY1: you might be having a problem with your 32-bit video driver libraries. What video card drivers are you using?
