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.

My knowledge of linux is pretty minimal, I took over from another person after they left. We're running Trustix v2.2. I was looking to make some changes to SpamAssassin when something strange happened. SpamAssassin will no longer start, the errors generated seem to point to missing Perl files. When I check the Perl (v5.8.5) installation (rpm -V Perl), it gives me the following errors:
I don't know what happened here, but I've tried reinstalling mulitple versions of Perl and I can never seem to get past the missing dependencies. I've only found one version of v5.8.5 that seems to install, but then these files are still missing. Can anyone provide any insight? Is there somewhere I can get these files and copy them in manually?
Thanks for the reply. I've worked a lot on this now. RPM installers don't seem to work at all, haven't a clue why. I'd verify the installation of any rpm I would try and it would report back as not installed. However, installing tar's with Perl makefile's was the trick in getting a stable installation. Things are working now... what a pain.
