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 been using KDAR (Gui front-end to DAR - Disk ARchiver) very happily for a couple of years. I run Fedora Core 4 and (initially) there were no rpm's available so I compiled from source. Recently however the archiver stopped working because of FC4's SELinux policies. The solution to this was to upgrade to the latest version of DAR (from 2.2.5 to 2.3.0 - which works just fine now - as a command line tool). However, I still want the convenience of the GUI KDAR.
There is no later version of KDAR than the one I am was currently using (2.0.7) and when I tried to recompile that with the new version of DAR the process failed.
I am running FC4 on an x86 PC
I have GCC version 4.0.2 20051125 (Red Hat 4.0.2-8)
I ran /sbin/ldconfig.
./configure worked just fine.
On make the process fails...
In case anyone else is experiencing the same problem, here is Johnathan Burchill's (KDar's developer) reply to my question on that mailing list...
KDar 2.x does not compile with dar 2.3.x. The dar library underwent
some big and impressive changes from 2.2 to 2.3, and I have not
finished upgrading the KDar source code.
Check out the latest svn source code on sf.net/projects/kdar or you
can download the alpha release on the downloads site for a preview of
kdar-3.x. Not much works, but you can open, browse and test archives.
It is not yet a replacement for 2.0.7, so try it at your own risk. I
welcome all suggestions for development.
I think he is aiming for a more complete version some time around the summer of this year...
