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 started around midnight, and it's almost 2 in the morning - still going
AMD 850 MHz, 512 Mb SDRAM, 2 Maxtor HDD's - ATA100 but on primary IDE channel hence ATA66 40 GB 7200 RPMs, and ATA66 8.2 GB 5600 RPM's.
How far will it go?
Yeah, that's what I did for the rest of the night, I laughed my arse off. 2 hrs wasted - so dumb, oh well next time. BTW, when I was compiling it I used the lightest ever window manager - none, pure runlevel3, because I just compiled new kernel -2.5.24, and my NVIDIA drivers must've been recompiled, but for some reason I decided to compile mozilla first, and I was posting it using lynx :-)
The next shot would be on mozilla tar.gz
Thanks for support mate.
well my source compile of moz apparently took up 1.2Gb, and i never could suss out how to actually install the program and get rid of the source code. it seemed quite insistant that it was gonna stay exactly where it was.
Originally posted by neo77777 I'd say it was awesomely f....ing crappy! Danm, it took nearly two hours again, and on top of it I just got rid off the source code - no go afterwards. Danm.
Whatever - lynx rules.
No kidding, I posted before right after the compile. The make install took another three minutes... a 3 minute install from one part of the hard drive to another? And it bogged out! I could of spent that time doing something useful, like cleaning my earwax!
There is a really good hint at the LFS site on how to compile mozilla. It may be of interest to you. But Mozilla is so sloooooooow, especially compared to galeon, but you need moz for galeon. Strange....
On the off subject, is anyone getting odd X-lockups using Opera 6.01? It just breaks X, reads a bunch of zombies in ps , which I'm able to get to just by remote logging into the machine. I'm using the QT static version on the KDE 3.0.1 of Slack 8.1.
Man, I wonder when will the real browser for linux show up? Besides lynx , now I've screwed up the system such that galeon is getting messy. I put for now original rpms from CD's, can't even use up2date to get newest RH mozilla which is 0.9.9 in order to get galeon 1.2, the deps error out on gcc, I have 3.1.17, and up2date wants its crappy 2.96, oh well experimenting, experimenting - I want my LFS !!! I've faild it once, I guess the best platform to build it on would be slack.
