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.

Yeah I've always wondered the very same thing...how do you install a compiler without a compiler? I thought (a long time ago, before i started LFS) that by going thru the steps of a LFS system would answer it for me...but i found out you have to use a base distro...bugger, that didn't answer it, heh.
Originally posted by bulliver Hmm, wasn't too clear on whether the tgz was binary or source. Shouldn't we troubleshoot (or at least find out) why binary gcc "didn't help me any"
Am I missing something?
Sorry ... what I meant to say is that I installed a BINARY tgz of gcc (I thought that was clear ... oh well) but I still get :
/usr/local/lib/libc.so.6: undefined reference to `_dl_lazy@GLIBC_2.1.1'
/usr/local/lib/libc.so.6: undefined reference to `_dl_dst_substitute@GLIBC_2.1.1
/usr/local/lib/libc.so.6: undefined reference to `_dl_out_of_memory@GLIBC_2.2'
# and so forth #
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
when I try to compile anything with gcc. Thus, I am led to believe the problem is not with gcc (I guessed that, but am scraping the bottom of the barrel here).
_dl_ prefix leads me to believe that /usr/local/lib/ld-linux.so.2 has something to do with it, but what?? Thanks for the replies.
