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've installed amsn 0.95 and I have these questions:
1. Why the RPM for install runs only under super user(root in my case)?
2. When I try to run amsn after its installattion with a non super user I receive the screen I copy below:
[ricardo@c915481b ricardo]$ amsn
Error in startup script: can't find package framec
"package require framec"
(file "chatwindow.tcl" line 7)
invoked from within
"source chatwindow.tcl "
(procedure "reload_files" line 19)
invoked from within
(file "/usr/bin/amsn" line 229)
But, when I run it as super user(root) the messages don't appear and it runs successfully(Is it possible that we have unresolved dependencies for a single user and not for a super user?)
How can I run amsn 0.95 as a non super user?
3. I don't know that the verson 0.94 that I have in my machine was installed via RPM and I deleted manually all files "amsn" I found before install version 0.95. If I run RPM -e for version 0.94 it reports an error(probably because I delete related files). The question is: Can I remove version 0.94 from the packages database? How?

Before this try I download de tar.gz and try to compile it. When hit the make command I receive an error that I can solve.
Since this occurrence I download the RPM file and install it.
A good question that nobody answer me is:
May a dependency occurs with a non-super user and doesn't occur with a super user?
I'd try a CHMOD on the /usr/bin/amsn and /usr/share/amsn and nothing happens... Where I made amistake?
