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.

As mentioned in the subject I'm using the Olimex SAM9-L9260 and I'm trying to build kernel as told in the user manual. First question is about the patches. When I run the patch named 2.6.23-rc3-at91.patch which should add general support for at91-based boards to the kernel I get a series of errors (or warnings I don't know) starting like this:
diff: linux-2.6.23-rc3/arch/arm/boot/compressed/head-at91rm9200.S: No such file or directory
diff: linux-2.6-stable/arch/arm/boot/compressed/head-at91rm9200.S: No such file or directory
/sbin/2.6.23-rc3-at91.patch: line 2: ---: command not found
/sbin/2.6.23-rc3-at91.patch: line 3: +++: command not found
/sbin/2.6.23-rc3-at91.patch: line 4: @@: command not found cmp: r7,: No such file or directory
Are these important or just trivial warnings?
And when I enter the command "$ make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux- sam9_l9260_defconfig" I get the error "make: *** No rule to make target `sam9_l9260_defconfig'. Stop."
I'm trying to do these on the board not on my Ubuntu installed laptop, I hope I'm not making a mistake? If anyone can help me I'll be really grateful. Thanks in advance.
