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.

But, Suse doesn't have gcc installed. So I cannot install my favorite programs.
FYI, I'm not allowed to install any rpm's on these systems. I do have root access.
Because both systems use the i386 arch, I tried copying one program (in this case objdump). I already knew I could expect errors:
objdump: error while loading shared libraries: libopcodes-188.8.131.52.2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Of course I did a search on the forum and I found that there could be a lot of libraries involved.
When I review my problem, the best course of action would be to recompile the program on the Red Hat system and include the libraries in the binary.
to obtain info on shared libraries needed. Copy them to /usr/lib or other suitable folder, and then as root execute
Word of wisdom:
Anyway, you should not mix shared libraries from different distributions, as they just migh colide with each other. I´m sure that application in question is available as rpm package for Suse. Yast is your friend.
