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 got some problems installing (compiling) gcc and glibc. (Cross-compiling from sparc-*-linux-gnu to sparc64-*-linux-gnu).
Please give me some exact pointers where to find these problems and their answers. (or where to submit new ones).
Error: sed -e : options requires an argument.
This was to a fault in the automake? script. The generated code should be " sed -e $t ". I could manage a workaround.
Error: memset.S: sparcv9 not compatible with sparcv9a or sparcv9b.
This as a fault to a script error (again). It should pass the CFLAGS to the compiler which it fails to do this time. Simple workaround was to set the the flags within the CC variable.
And my latest error (yet unsolved... :-((( ):
*** No rule to make target `/mnt/tools/glibc-build/misc/setfsuid.o', needed by `/mnt/tools/glibc-build/misc/stamp.o'. Stop.
Of course I spit the internet looking for some information, but most of the time I fail. I did get the solution to the "sparcv9" on the internet, but it was not fixed in my download of glibc from gnu. Neither do I get any result using databases of the bug-glibc mailing lists. Where to find the solution?
Please tell me, or should I just use an intel with the lack of a netboot in the bios? :-p
PS Why does gcc-3.4.3 not have a proper manual for configure?
