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've used Goldwave to edit mp3's in Windoze - y'know, lop a couple of seconds off the applause at the end, increase the volume, etc. But is there something similar available in Linux? I'd really prefer to NOT use the other OS.
I d/l'ed glame-0.6.3.tar.gz from sourceforge and extracted it to /usr/local. So now I have a directory /usr/local/glame-0.6.3. I cd into it and try to execute ./configure as per the instructions. It comes back with a message: "configure: error: cannot find sources (configure.in) in . or .."
I d/l'ed glame again and had a bit more success. The ./configure command runs but at some point I get the following error message:
checking for esd-config... no
checking for ESD - version >= 0.2.0... no
*** The esd-config script installed by ESD could not be found
*** If ESD was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the ESD_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to esd-config.
configure: error: GNOME needs esd library and development
I've searched the Suse installation cd's but haven't found anything that looks like it might be what I need. What is ESD and where do I find it?
Ok, since the last advice, I've installed esd (I think...) and got to the point where the ./configure seems to run quite happily. However, the next step (make), carries on for a while and then complains about missing libesd.la. Does this mean that my esd-installation was unsuccessful or what?
No, it needs to be compiled in a special way to produce .la file. I don't remember how to do it, so I'm not sure but run
for esd and search for an option to use libtools (libtools can produce *.la files).
