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.

First of all , I'm a newbie, using Red hat 9
I installed glib 2.2.3 by extracting the tarball, opening a terminal and typing
that seemed to go ok. But when I try to install pango 1.2.5
I get the following error message during the configure process:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.1.3... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
*** Glib 2.1.3 or better is required. The latest version of
*** Glib is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
...after which it exits.
WHAT I KNOW:
-The configure script cannot find a glib installation with a version
greatet than or equal to 2.1.3
WHAT I DONT KNOW:
-Where the configure script looks in order to come to this conclusion
-What the configure script looks for in order to come to this conclusion
-Most other things about Linux
can somebody PLEASE give me some suggestions as to what is the most likely thing
that has gone wrong here. as I said I'm a newbie, but I need this in time for tomorrow.
