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 downloaded the postgresql-base-7.2.1 and postgresql-opt-7.2.1 tarballs from a trusted source.
Its installation instructions say:
I tried to follow them, but there is no configure file anywhere.
When I run gmake, it said:
'You need to run the configure program first.'
What to do then?
I know the reason now; MD5 checksum does not match: this fucked intranet made a mistake again!
Incredible: one just cannot copy an archive file (arj, rar, tar, cab, etc.) between computers on the intranet as the copy will not be the same as the original.
I should have known from the beginning.
Now I could manage somehow to copy the file to the server without errors.
All MD5 checksums are correct. Gcc version is OK.
Still I get several error messages like this when running gmake:
gmake: [access-recursive] Error 2
gmake: Leaving directory '/usr/local/postgresql-7.2.1/src/backend/access
