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.

There is some software that was developed on a fairly new linux (Centos 6.3) and now I am trying to compile it on a older version (Centos 5). I am getting a bunch of new warning messages on the old linux that I wasn't getting on the new one such as the following:
warning: converting from non-pointer type 'char' from NULL
warning: passing NULL to non-pointer argument 4 of...(one of the functions)
I found that the GCC compiler I am using on the older linux is version 4.1.2 while the newer linux is GCC version 4.4.6 could this be the problem for all these new messages?
Also, I am getting an error message that reads:
error: 'sched_getcpu' was not declared in this scope
Again I did not get this error on the newer linux. I think the problem might be that the older linux might not have sched.h file/library installed or maybe its not being properly linked(GCC problem again?) but I do not know how to verify this. (where would I go to see what libraries are included on the computer?)
