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, I made a successfull compile of DCLib and Valknut DC++, but two folders with their name, were I first extracted them, are unable to be deleted. It says (Translated from Swedish):
Access denied to /home/linus/Desktop/Recycle bin/dclib/ChangeLog.
Abort - Skip - Skip Automatically.
Then the folder disappear, but when I refresh the root-folder it was located in, it's still there. That makes me wonder if it's being recreated of if it just doesn't disappear.
So what can be behind this kind of problem? I tried to search for a Delete-command in the Terminal, so I could log in as root and delete them that way, but I didn't succeed with that.
And btw, the app that the source codes are there for isn't running at all.
That can be VERY dangerous, but it will destroy everything in the directory listed and below it, and the -f option is for force, it won't ask you questions about the files, it is a 1 step removal. Be really careful with it, rm -rf in the wrong place is a dead system. I did that once, and I never want to do it again!
