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.

Please guide me. I have also tried to attach the config.log file, as this is my first useful post i don't know whether its correctly attached. Please Need your help urgently. I reached till glibc, and then have to start again due to system crash, now again i am on step one. Waiting for your kind help.
Nothing to be done for install, isn't it an error? Since when i reach it to glibc, i cant compile dummy program, so i restarted whole process. Thought might i have missed something. It sounded different so asked. I thought it was an error.
Spiky001, may you please do a favor? Can i continue this post as unsolved till dummy program after Glibc PASS 1? So can get help from you all the way, if in case again that error occurs at glibc time..
Wait till you done glibc If there error occurs there start a new thread.
