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 using Gentoo, and I'm updating my system after removing a use flag and changing my CFLAGS. So everythings good except for one failed compile (so far). Here's the first part of the error:
i386-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: warning: libgnutls.so.12, needed by /usr/lib/libsoup-2.2.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)
/usr/lib/libsoup-2.2.so: undefined reference to `gnutls_certificate_set_dh_params@GNUTLS_1_2'
Then similar erros continue on down the page till
/usr/lib/libsoup-2.2.so: undefined reference to `gnutls_x509_crt_check_hostname@GNUTLS_1_2'

I don't know what caused it either, but I've got it fixed as well. I too saw that it was a problem with libgnutls so I went searching on the Gentoo Forums as well. I never posted there, and I never found the answer there either. But I did run revdep-rebuild, it saw the error and recompiled libgnutls and evolution-data-server as well. Maybe you should run it as well if you haven't already.
As you can easily insinuate from the number of posts I made, I still quite new to linux (gentoo is my first distro and I've only been running it a month or so), and I had no idea that command existed. Well I probably read about it somewhere, but forgot about it quickly thereafter.
