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 was wondering why i get C/C++ errors whenever i try and make a program. For instance: I want to install Zinf so I downloaded it... and I cd to its dir and try to "make" it. I get these errors:
../../base/include/queue.h: In member function 'bool Queue<T>::IsEmpty()':
../../base/include/queue.h:165: error: there are no arguments to 'assert' that depend on a template parameter, so a declaration of 'assert' must be available
../../base/include/queue.h:165: error: (if you use '-fpermissive', G++ will accept your code, but allowing the use of an undeclared name is deprecated)
../../base/include/queue.h: In member function 'void Queue<T>::GetLock()':
../../base/include/queue.h:170: error: there are no arguments to 'assert' that depend on a template parameter, so a declaration of 'assert' must be available
../../base/include/queue.h: In member function 'void Queue<T>::ReleaseLock()':
../../base/include/queue.h:176: error: there are no arguments to 'assert' that depend on a template parameter, so a declaration of 'assert' must be available
../../base/include/properties.h: At global scope:
../../base/include/properties.h:65: warning: 'class PropertyWatcher' has virtual functions but non-virtual destructor
../../base/include/player.h:158: error: extra qualification 'Player::' on member 'SetEQData'
../../base/include/player.h:164: error: extra qualification 'Player::' on member 'SendVisBuf'
Since this didn't work, I tried to install another player (mpg123) and I got more C/C++ errors... I also get errors trying to "make all" when attempting to install my wireless drivers. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Are all of the programs I download conveniently mis-coded? What can I do to install programs without having to try and modify the code and have it possibly not work again?
I'm running SuSE 10.1 currently and btw I'm completely new to Linux. Any help I would really appreciate
