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.

well, it all started when i wanted to get my ATI fglrx drivers installed.... many people seem to support the idea that recompiling the kernel with **** helps out getting the drivers working.
But, the question:
I have downloaded the src (2.4.26) that i want and did a make xconfig. That seemed okay. i saved that configuation as 2.4.26-newer or something like that . before that I moved my old "/usr/src/linux-2.4.26" to "linux-2.4.26-old" first.
now, i run make dep and it doesnt take long (<1 sec) and there is some errors and i know errors are bad at this stage.... I am looking for some help as to what this means:
root@darkstar:/usr/src/linux-2.4.26# make dep
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -o scripts/mkdep scripts/mkdep.c
In file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1_lim.h:126,
/usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:36:26: linux/limits.h: No such file or directory
scripts/mkdep.c: In function `add_path':
scripts/mkdep.c:221: error: `PATH_MAX' undeclared (first use in this function)
scripts/mkdep.c:221: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
scripts/mkdep.c:221: error: for each function it appears in.)
scripts/mkdep.c:221: warning: unused variable `resolved_path'
make: *** [scripts/mkdep] Error 1
thanks for any help. oh, and if it helps: i am running slack 10 w/ kde
Did you save your configuration without choose another name? You need to have a file named ".config" at the end of the configuration. If you do not have this file copy your saved configuration as .config and try make dep again.
