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 trying to use the redhat x windows package managing utility to update some packages, but when I click 'update' it begins checking for package dependencies, then errors in this way: Packages not found. The following packages could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue until they are installed.
It lists about five packages which have nothing to do with the changes I've just made to the package list. I'm sure these packages are already installed, because I've since tried installing them separately, like openssl and openldap. How do I tell my system that these packages are already installed?
i think one problem may be that for a lot of those "needed" package with the equal sign next to the version I have a newer version of. and I'm not trying to install any of those particular -devel packages, which is the really strange thing.
alright, I figured it out--this package updater doesn't account for the packages I've updated, such as openssl, and it's trying to install the old openssl-devel package with the new openssl package. I just went to ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linu...8.0/en/os/i386 and got the new -devel packages for the six errors, and everything works now.
