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.

[root@localhost k3b-0.11.1]# ./configure --help
`configure' configures this package to adapt to many kinds of systems.
Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...
To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE. See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.
Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.
-h, --help display this help and exit
--help=short display options specific to this package
--help=recursive display the short help of all the included packages
-V, --version display version information and exit
-q, --quiet, --silent do not print `checking...' messages
--cache-file=FILE cache test results in FILE [disabled]
-C, --config-cache alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
-n, --no-create do not create output files
--srcdir=DIR find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']
--prefix=PREFIX install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
--exec-prefix=EPREFIX install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/kde/bin', `/usr/local/kde/lib' etc. You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local/kde' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.
For better control, use the options below.
Fine tuning of the installation directories:
--bindir=DIR user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
--sbindir=DIR system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
--libexecdir=DIR program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
--datadir=DIR read-only architecture-independent data [PREFIX/share]
--sysconfdir=DIR read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
--sharedstatedir=DIR modifiable architecture-independent data [PREFIX/com]
--localstatedir=DIR modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
--libdir=DIR object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
--includedir=DIR C header files [PREFIX/include]
--oldincludedir=DIR C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
--infodir=DIR info documentation [PREFIX/info]
--mandir=DIR man documentation [PREFIX/man]
--program-prefix=PREFIX prepend PREFIX to installed program names
--program-suffix=SUFFIX append SUFFIX to installed program names
--program-transform-name=PROGRAM run sed PROGRAM on installed program names
--build=BUILD configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
--host=HOST cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]
--target=TARGET configure for building compilers for TARGET [HOST]
--disable-FEATURE do not include FEATURE (same as --enable-FEATURE=no)
--enable-FEATURE[=ARG] include FEATURE [ARG=yes]
--disable-fast-perl disable fast Makefile generation (needs perl)
--enable-debug=ARG enables debug symbols (yes|no|full) default=no
--disable-debug disables debug output and debug symbols default=no
--enable-strict compiles with strict compiler options (may not work!)
--disable-warnings disables compilation with -Wall and similiar
--enable-profile creates profiling infos default=no
--disable-dependency-tracking Speeds up one-time builds
--enable-dependency-tracking Do not reject slow dependency extractors
--enable-pch enables precompiled header support (currently only KCC) default=no
--enable-final build size optimized apps (experimental - needs lots of memory)
--enable-closure delay template instantiation
--enable-nmcheck enable automatic namespace cleanness check
build shared libraries [default=yes]
build static libraries [default=no]
--enable-libsuffix /lib directory suffix (64,32,none=default)
optimize for fast installation [default=yes]
--disable-libtool-lock avoid locking (might break parallel builds)
--enable-embedded link to Qt-embedded, don't use X
--enable-qtopia link to Qt-embedded, link to the Qtopia Environment
--enable-mac link to Qt/Mac (don't use X)
--disable-mt link to non-threaded Qt (deprecated)
--disable-threading disables threading even if libpthread found
--disable-rpath do not use the rpath feature of ld
--disable-path-check don't try to find out, where to install
--with-PACKAGE[=ARG] use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
--without-PACKAGE do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
--with-gnu-ld assume the C compiler uses GNU ld [default=no]
--with-pic try to use only PIC/non-PIC objects [default=use
include additional configurations [automatic]
adds non standard include paths
--with-extra-libs=DIR adds non standard library paths
--with-qt-dir=DIR where the root of Qt is installed
--with-qt-includes=DIR where the Qt includes are.
--with-qt-libraries=DIR where the Qt library is installed.
--without-arts build without aRts default=yes
--with-k3bsetup=ARG do compile K3bSetup2 KControl Module (default=yes)
Some influential environment variables:
CC C compiler command
CFLAGS C compiler flags
LDFLAGS linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
nonstandard directory <lib dir>
CPPFLAGS C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if you have
headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
CPP C preprocessor
CXX C++ compiler command
CXXFLAGS C++ compiler flags
CXXCPP C++ preprocessor
F77 Fortran 77 compiler command
FFLAGS Fortran 77 compiler flags
Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.
Don't take it bad, but just one question : do you try to compile k3b for fun, because
you want to try gcc or just because you need it it ? Because if you need it there are
pre-compiled programs called rpms which would install it with no problem.
I ask because I did not find Mandrake the best distro to compile from source.
Each time I tried was a failure. You might think of using Slackware if you want tools
that actually let you install from source. Or Debian, perhaps. In Slack it worked much
