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 installed Fedora Core 2 in one of my systems through CDs (it came with 4 cds).
After i booted the first Cd it started the installation process and then continued with second CD.
Again after a reboot, it had some settings and then later asked to install additional cds but when i attempted to do that it said it cannot process the data in the CD. The 3 and 4 cds have RPMS.
Later after the system booted i tried to install the RPMS for gcc compiler from the CD. (gcc34-c++-3.4.0-1)
I used this command -
rpm -ivh gcc34-c++-3.4.0-1.rpm
I had two dependencies but then later when i installed the appropriate RPMS it was fine.
But it always gave me this error - error on dependencies gcc34=3.4.0-1 is needed by gcc34-c++-3.4.0-1
I'm not sure what it is looking for. I'm stuck. Can anyone please help me out.
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Why not make a textfile with your installed stuff??
command 'rpm -qa | sort > my_package_list.txt' (or any name for the textfile)
You should have a gcc installed, like nauntilus tells you, in my archives the
version for fedora 2 is gcc-3.3.3-7.i386.rpm
So please install gcc-c++-3.3.3-7.i386.rpm for c++
then it will all fit together.
(All the 3.4 versions are there too, don't use them)
FC2 is beyond EOL (End of Life) by years. The current version is Fedora 8. As there will be no updates available for FC2 and very few people have run it in years, I would strongly suggest you update. Fedora 8 is available for free download. This will also save you tons of headaches as the out of box capabilities have grown exponentially.
The tool is Sebek for capturing attackers keystorkes.It work only with Linux kernels 2.6.15 or below. I moved to FC5 now. My problem now is how do i install a set of RPMS from the Cds i have? i'm stuck. Dont know how to proceed.
Running any Fedora system without the net is going to be difficult (at best).
The yum localinstall should not involve the net. I do not know if the kernel-devel will be on the install disks or not (should be). The version number of the kernel and kernel-devel HAVE to be exact matches or it will not work.
Again where did you find any information that said sebek will not work on newer kernels?
I'm doing a Honeynet project. So i got the sebek tool from their website. And i read some of the emails in their workgroups which said that sebek will not work with newer kernels. Thats where i got to know.
Also another question about the kernel source. I do not have the rpm in the CD. Would it possible for u to point me to the link?
