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.

Okay, I get this when trying to compile xine-ui-0.9.13... I just did an install of xine-lib-0.9.13 that worked with out a hitch...
checking for XINE-LIB version >= 0.9.10... no
*** Could not run XINE test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding XINE or finding the wrong
*** version of XINE. If it is not finding XINE, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
configure: error: *** You should install xine-lib first ***
Now I also get this when trying to install LimeWire... I installed j2re1.4.1_01 via the rpm install file and it went fine with out any errors as well...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.
So, what's the deal here? Am I missing something, do I have to register all of this manually after compiling or something? I am running RedHat 8.0, let me know if you need to know any more.
Okay, now it's giving me the same error but this time for AALIB... I have no idea where this got put in the xine-lib install... Any ideas on where I can find a list of where all of the files got put? Or is it any bodies guess?
checking for AALIB version >= 1.2... no
*** The aalib-config|aainfo program installed by AALIB could not be found
*** If AALIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or use --with-aalib-prefix to set the prefix
*** where AALIB is installed.
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for DirectFB... *** All of DIRECTFB dependent parts will be disabled ***
checking for png_read_info in -lpng... no
configure: error: *** libpng is needed (PNG library not found) - try to use --with-png-prefix option ***
well there is more than aalib (it allows you to see graphics on console, it is pretty cool, but if you ain't need it you ain't need to install it. You must have libpng installed, I can see your future - you are browsing http://www.rpmfind.net to get the libs.
