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 installing curphoo ( a yahoo chat client). The README file contains the following text:
You need a Python 2.4 series interpretter starting with Curphoo 0.4.0.
Starting with 0.4.0, Curphoo uses a purely Python implementation of
the YMSG authentication protocol. It also uses new functions found
only Python 2.4's curses module.
Curphoo 0.3.12 continues to work with Python 2.1, 2.2 an 2.3 however,
but you will need a GNU development toolchain and also the headers for
your curses implementation installed.
1. Unpack the source tarball
2. cd to the newly made directory
3. Type make (or gmake on bsd)
4. Type ./curphoo
When I get to step 3, I get the following:
/bin/sh: c: not found
make: [curphoo] Error 127 (ignored)
chmod 755 curphoo
I have python version 2.6.5 and the contents of the unpacked curphoo directory are:
Distribution: Mint 16 RC, Elementary OS Luna, Crunchbang
you guys have been great. I did recieve this warning when ./curphoo:
The popen2 module is deprecated. Use the subprocess module.
/home/xxxxx/.local/share/Trash/files/curphoo-0.4.3-3/YahooMD5.py:29: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
note file is moved out of trash.
however hopefully i can solve this with some google searching...anyway thanks again. Thread solved
