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.

Originally posted by anttu If it's trying to create the file, in which directory does it try to make it??
Is it in /usr/local/lib (.libs/libgd.so.2.0.0)
is it in /home/bla/...../gd-2.0.28/ (.libs/libgd.so.2.0.0) ??
under those directories there isn't any libs directory...
What should I do next??
It should be creating it in /home/bla/...../gd-2.0.28/.libs
Note that .libs is (because of the leading dot) a hidden directory; you'll need to use ls -al .libs to see it.
Originally posted by rjlee Are you running make as another user, such as root? If so, you won't be able to create the file because only the owner has write-access to that directory.
I run make as root, yes, but the directory is owned by root and it doesn't help that the whole tree down is owned by root....
I can't just understand what could be wrong!?!???!?!
I'm going crazy soon...
