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 install Gnome, and I keep getting the "die 'econf failed'" error for gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3. Here's the error:
checking for TCP wrappers... configure: error: "libwrap not found!"
ERROR: gnome-base/gnome-session-2.20.3 failed
ebuild.sh, line 49: Called src_compile
environment, line 2572: Called gnome2_src_compile
environment, line 1957: Called gnome2_src_configure
The specific snippet of code:
die "econf failed"
The die message:
I did a little research and found it may be to me missing tcp-wrappers. I remerged tcp-wrappers successfully, but I'm still having the same issue. Any ideas as to what's going on?
well, I've tried "emerge -pv libwrap" but there is no such ebuild.
The question is if there is something wrong with your tcp-wrapper. I had sometimes the problem that such a package needed more (or other) USE-flags. But the tcp-wrapper has only "-ipv6". Are there other failing dependencies in the logfile?
js-sandbox jsec # emerge -pv gnome-session
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
Calculating dependencies... done!
