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.

Ok, I was told I couldn't get my packages to compile correctly because I was missing Kaccel. So, I found it at KDE.org, cut and pasted to an editor...now what. How do I get this thing to work. Where do I save it to, etc...
Oh well thats a different story then. It can't find your C compiler. Do you have a C compiler installed? Is it in your path? Is this just going to spark more questions from you? Yes, I believe it will.
whereis will look for binary executables. This helps to look for those instead of locate of find that will produce anything with the letters gcc or cc in them. To see if they are in your path, find the path they are with the whereis, and then:
And see if that location is listed.
MOST LIKELY however, they are not installed. They are part of the "development" portion of the install which confuses many people (including me when I ran that distro). You can install via RPM from your discs if you had them, or via an ftp mirror for your distro's release: ftp://ftp-linux.cc.gatech.edu/pub/ma...drake-old/8.2/
Find the GCC packages (all of them, or urpmi them and add that ftp mirror to your listed sites) and install it.
