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 wanted to give KDE 3.0.2 a try which requires QT 3.0.5. I downloaded the qt-x11-3.0.5.tar.gz package and untarred it to /usr/local as described in the INSTALL file that came with the tar.gz package. This created the qt-3.0.5 directory in /usr/local...I then renamed the directory from qt-3.0.5 to qt using mv qt-3.0.5 qt ..just like it was described in the INSTALL file..then i had to create a file called .profile in my home directory and set the PATH's to qt..I did it exactly as descriobed in the manual..the entries in .profile looked as follows:
I then did a reboot..logged in again as nomral user..changed to /usr/local/qt and did ./configure ... only to get an error message saying that I didn't set up the $QTDIR variable right, it would currently point to "" , but it had to point to the currenct installation directory /usr/local/qt ...which is exactly what i set up in the .profile file shown above..so ..lol...i'm pretty confused, what did go wrong this time??? I'm using gcc 3.0.5 as a compiler and I am using BASH as shell..so somebody please help me, I can't seem to find any errors??
maybe itīs not big help but i installed qt 3.04 a couple weeks ago setting the QTDIR in my home/.profile and the install worked.
maybe you could try:'source /home/name/.profile' in case .profile isnīt read while booting?
