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've having the same problem, only that i'm not getting the same message...what i get is "command not found". I also looked in YaST and gcc and gnu were both installed. Is there anything else I can do?
Me too, and it's driving me mad. I downloaded my modem driver from Olitec, unpacked the tar gz download, and I have the hsflinmodem-4.06.06.02 directory in my home/user/bin.
I open this directory in the file manager, and there six directories and 11 files.
The Olitec instructions say tap 'make install ' to configure the driver, then hsconfig to install it.
Using these commands in a console gets from bash ":command not found"
I have tried using these commands whilst I have been in all the 6 directories, one after the other, always the same response from bash.
Is there a Suse expert who can tell me the correct procedure to use? I can get no info from the Konsole help, man pages, or the info pages.
Any help to save my sanity would be gratefully accepted.
rogleale, as you have SuSE pro, you should be able to find everything you need on the CDs. Go into YaST and then to 'add/remove software' or whatever it is called. do a search for, and install both 'gcc' and 'make'.
As for hsconfig, it sounds like the manufacturer's own software so it's possible it is included in the tar.gz. Once you've run 'make install' (do this in the directory with files with name like makefile and configure and you may have to be root), then go to the directory (probably whare you already are?) where the hsconfig file is and type ./hsconfig to run it.
It is important however to amke sure you follow the order of the instructions exactly.
As for everyone else, make sure that as well as 'gcc' you also have 'make' installed.
