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.

So, I was trying to install v4l-dvb. I went to run make install as root and it died on /sbin/depmod -a
So, I tried running it myself and it sat for a while then came back with "Aborted". I ran it with the -v option and it spat out a bunch of stuff that didn't mean anything to me. I'm hoping someone here can help.
So, I've since totally reinstalled linux (twice). It was the v4l-dvb that was messing things up. When I ran the make install as root it does something that prevents depmod -a from running successfully. After doing make rminstall I could depmod again, but it also removed some stuff that left my system messed up as well.
I'm giving up on v4l-dvb for now. Thanks for the help though.
