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 installed cvs from software manager by placing the OS dvd. But still getting the same error. Well i dont understand the concept of i386, i586 architectures..Well is there anything to do with 32 bit or 64 bit and all.
Because my system is 32 bit and i dont know if i586 refer to 64 bit and thats the problem or not ?
yeh few packages were missing and i got that installed but one package is still missing
kdesdk3>=3.4.0 for kdevlop 3-3.4.0-42.1.i586
Any idea from where can i download this package. Well i am googlin but cant see anything relevant...
ok then how can i check whether my system is i386 or i586 ...
I lookad at BIOS but couldnt find any option for that and also entered the command i.e. #cat /proc/cpuinfo
but no info about it.
Can you please let me know about it..may be this is the problem
i386 is a kind of generic stuff, that works for everything above i386 (and Celeron is high above a 386 ) so you should use it until you are sure of what you do (in fact, for a Celeron I'm almost sure i586 will work)
Do you run Gnome or KDE ? Do you want to develop graphical applications ? (the choice of the IDE is important if you want to ...)
Personnaly, I use Code::Blocks, which also runs on Windows, but you have to build it yourself (it's not difficult, but newbies usually don't like to build stuffs ... If you want, just ask )
Yeh after entering this command i can see something like "i686 i686 i386" (i assume its i686 only but dont knw why i386 was also written )
I dont have any problem in using any compiler as i have not used any till now. Basically i want to write providers for openWBEM in C++. so its programming for back end kind of thing, front end browser is already developed in java.
Is there any other compiler or code::bloacks which i could install without much hastles. I basically want to spend my time in coding rather then wasting my time in just installing the right compiler.
I dont know what is libcvsservice.so.0 as this time i am getting error about not having install provider for libcvsservice.so.0. Every time it gives new problem.
I think ill try for some other compiler...Any recommendation ?
No actually i dont have internet connection on that system. So everytime i have to download the package from another machine and then install it over sles.
So which is now giving me a heading now.
I have installed all the pre-requisite mentioned in Kdevlop site but still having problem.
Otherwise SuSE helped out in many previous problems which i was facing with Fedora.
I'd recommend connecting it to the internet [temporarily] and do a full online update/upgrade before installing. This way you can avoid version conflicts and up-to-date software runs better because it is tested against newer components/libraries.
