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 am trying to install the ickle messenger. After I run ./configure, I get the following error:
checking for sigc-config... /usr/local/bin/sigc-config
checking for libsigc++ - version >= 1.0.0... 1.0.4
checking if libsigc++ sane... no
configure: error: You need to have the libsigc++ libraries installed
So I downloaed the library and installed it, just using their directions - the basic ./configure, make, make install.
But I still get the same error.
The config.log from ickle is as follows:
configure:8393: checking for sigc-config
configure:8410: found /usr/local/bin/sigc-config
configure:8422: result: /usr/local/bin/sigc-config
configure:8431: checking for libsigc++ - version >= 1.0.0
configure:8466: result: 1.0.4
configure:8485: checking if libsigc++ sane
configure:8530: g++ -o conftest -g -O2 -I/usr/local/lib/sigc++-1.0/include -I/usr/local/include/sigc++-1.0 conftest.cc -L/usr/local/lib -lsigc -lpthread >&5
configure:8533: $? = 0
./conftest: error while loading shared libraries: libsigc-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
However, when I run whereis libsigc-1.0.so.0 I get:
Sorry if I'm missing something really obvious, but I'm new and have yet to be able to install a program that needed a lib that I didn't already have. This would be a big first!!!
BTW, I''m trying Ickle because I can't get licq to connect with icq2000 users, and the licq list suggested it.
