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.

Hi everyone, I am having trouble running the ./configure command after untarring a file. I cd to the folder location after it is untarred, and then I run the ./configure command. When I do that, there are a bunch of lines in which it seems like my setting are being checked such as something like:
Does this folder have this setting.........yes
no obviously that is not one of them, but you get what I mean. Anyway, at the end, it says:
cofigure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
and then it ends the process. So I was just wondering what I should do about this. Thanks!
Sorry to interupt, but i have the feeling Enfer Singe's about have the same problem as me
i extract and go to run ./configure for gcc and it says this...
"Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnu host.
Created "Makefile" in /gcc-3.2.3 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 7: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler."
i'm pretty sure it's asking for a compiler to compile the compiler, but i don't have one... witch is exactly why i'm trying to install gcc!
there is no xfree dev rpm that I can find on any of my disks, but I did find one called xfree guild I think it was (the only xfree rpm I could find that was not already installed), and after I click it, it aske which of 4 packages I want to install. I choose one, but then it will give me a message saying something like this:
Please insert the medium named "Installation CD 1 (X86)" on device [/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd]
The only thing is that the rpm that I am trying to install is on installation disk 1. What should I do? Thanks again, you guys rule!
