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'm using apt-get under SuSe 9.2. I've executed apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade, it would upgrade 63 packages, mostly kde stuff and then 17 that need to be kept back
The following packages have been kept back
arts arts-devel kdeaddons3-kate kdebase3 kdebase3-devel kdegames3
kdegraphics3 kdegraphics3-fax kdelibs3 kdelibs3-devel kdemultimedia3
kdenetwork3 kdenetwork3-vnc kdepim3 kdesdk3 kdeutils3 mysql-connector-java
63 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 removed and 17 not upgraded.
Are they left behind becuase I do not have them originally installed or should I install them, and how do you force them to install.
The next issue is after downloading the 63 packages, I get the following:
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /opt/kde3/share/services/popmail-conduit.desktop from install of kdepim3-kpilot-3.3.92_2005021609-1 conflicts with file from package kdepim3-3.3.2-3
E: Error while running transaction
How can I resolve this error?
The next issuse is with installing gDesklets .33.1, after ./configure I get
configure: error: Library requirements (pygtk-2.0 >= 2.4.0 libgtop-2.0 >= 2.6.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
However, I know I've installed those files from the SuSe CDs. Do I have to refresh the database or something, I remember command 'updatedb' or something like that that would refresh but this does not work when I type it in.
