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'm trying to recompile 2.6.7 (debian way) but I keep getting an error:
arch/i386/power/built-in.o(.text+0x263): In function `do_magic':
: undefined reference to `swsusp_pg_dir'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.7'
make: *** [stamp-build] Error 2
I'm not sure why this is happening since 2.6.6 went fine last time (never had trouble re/compiling kernels)
This is what I did (after apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.7)
make xconfig (needed that to load xfs and ext2 instead of modules, since ext2 is /boot and all other partitions are xfs and I want to get rid of initrd)
make-kpkg --revision=05072004 kernel_image
starts running but stalls somewhere along the line in the error posted above. I first thought it might have something to do with leaving out the option --initrd, but trying to compile with --initrd leaves me with the same error.....
I didn't have APM selected but you did point me in the right direction. I had to deselect the module ' software suspend (EXPERIMENTAL)' under ' power management support' which I had selected.
All wenft fine now! thanx
