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'm hoping to install Superkaramba 0.33 on my system (SuSE 8.2 Pro). I'm a newbie. Here's my story.
I learned that all the qt3 development packages need to be installed first. SuSE 8.2 normally comes with qt3.1.1. I found the base qt program under /usr/lib/qt3. I did a search in YaST for qt3-devel in 'install and remove software' section, and there was NOTHING. Seeing that I could never find the development packages I'm SUPPOSED to get with 8.2 PRO, I downloaded the following upgrades from SuSE website:
qt3.3.0 base RPM and its respective development packages (qt3-devel, qt3-devel-doc, and qt3-devel-tools).
I did a successful RPM qt3 base package update with the command 'rpm -F qt3.3.0.rpm'. The first successful update I've ever had with Linux.
Then I tried to install the development 'rpm -U qt3.3.0.devel.rpm' and I got the following failed dependencies:
Yes, I figured that much. Now, HOW do I do it? I'm a newbie. In YaST 'Install and Remove Software' I type under search 'freetype' and all it responds with is 'freetype2' installed. Where do I find it, and how do I install it?
