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.

hi, you seem to be having an awful time compiling each program. I'd recommend you take a bit more time to learn and experiment to find out why things are going wrong before posting each and every problem here.
yeah i really don't wanna seem antagonistic or anything, cos you do seem to be learning shed loads which is cool. I just would've thought that a more hands on approach would actaully be to fiddle with things yourself rather than asking for help each time. Obviosuly that's only my opinion. I genuinely just find it's quicker to try and suss it yourself first, esp if it's a fairly obscure question like yours is.
i have zero LFS experience, but as for those sort of problems may well be related to perhaps an incorrect path to your aclocal macros. usually the macros are somewhere like /usr/share/aclocal, which i guess you should have an lfs install of rather than a mother hen one, i presume you'd need to define that path specifically somewhere.
well i thought one of my problems was the: export LFS=/mnt/lfs... i noticed when id bring up another terminal that $LFS wasnt set up on that particular terminal.. id do an echo $LFS and get nothing but would get the full path on the terminal where i worked origianlly... i thought that could have been the source of a lot of my problems but i set those right and still didnt work... i pride myself on learning things fairly quick but i am thinking i may be biting off more than i can chew... thanks for the help
