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 am just about done trying to get Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 to build. This is the second error when trying to compile it. The first one I got was due to some gcc4 problem and had to add ac_cv_visibility_pragma=no to the .mozconfig file. That got me past that one but now I am getting another one. belive it or not its in the same damn part of the email client too nsAppRunner. The error I am getting is
nsAppRunner.cpp:1373:6 error: #elif with no expression.
I am running LFS development and BLFS development versions, and I have NSS and NSPR system-installed
NOTE: Firefox compiled and installed fine after un-commenting the disable dbus in the .mozconfig that I downloaded instead of copying from the book. The one in the book has it commented and the file has it commented.
I checked the source file for nsAppRunner.cpp at line 1373 and found a orphan elif statement with no expression. A quick lookup of the #elif preprocessor statement showed that it should have something to check. a quick comment and Im testing to see if I have a successful compile. Now its time to write a bug to the Thunderbird folks.
Just some added info for anyone trying to build this version that is in the book it does not build. Even after fixing the above error and modifying the .mozconfig file it failed on some security stuff and it was at that point that I gave up trying to compile it. Like stated above this is an old version and its recommended you use the newest version.
