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 have two Linux systems on my machine: a SuSE 9.0 system, and a light "media player" distro called movix2.
Unfortunately Movix2 includes an ash shell instead of bash, and unlike bash, ash does not seem to handle array variables that I use in an important script of mine.
It would be very time consuming to rewrite the script, so I thought I might symlink bash and the required libraries from my SuSE system to the movix2 system.
I symlinked bash to /usr/local/bin/bash; besides some libraries like libreadline, libhistory (libc.so.6 seemed to be already there), when I was faced with the following error message when trying to run my script by bash under movix2:
libc.so.6: required by libreadline.so.x: version GCC_xxxx not found
What does this error message mean? Can it be solved by symlinking some other files from my SuSE system to movix2? Which ones?
Since movix2 is a mini distro specifically designed for playing multimedia files, it does not include gcc, so compiling bash or anything under movix2 seems to be impossible. That is why I try to use the compiled SuSE bash and library binaries under movix2.
I would be glad if you could suggest me a better solution that simply works.
