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.

Unpacking wxwin2.4-headers (from .../wxwin2.4-headers_220.127.116.11_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/wxwin2.4-headers_18.104.22.168_i386.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/aclocal/wxwin.m4', which is also in package wx2.5-common
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
ok I tried to rm the file wxwin2.4-headers_22.214.171.124_i386.deb from /var/cache/apt/archives# but when I did the apt-get -f install again it dl it and tired to install it again.
how do I tell apt-get that I do not want to dl this file any more so I can go ahead and use the apt-get -f install? Or is there something else that I should do?
