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.

While I am not a total newbie, I am still relatively new and need some help from you experts out there.
Here is the situation: I am running FC3 on my Dell laptop with a dualboot (Windows 2003 server). I am primarily using it to test web server functions and see how it handles for a few other things. I decided I wanted to play around with some music software and found RoseGarden. So I found the FC3 RPM for RoseGarden and downloaded it.
When I went to install it, it complained that it needed liblrdf.so.2. So I found the FC3 RPM for that and tried to install the liblrdf. That complained that it needed libraptor.so.1, so I found that FC3 RPM and ran it. The libraptor complained it needed libcrypto.so.0.9.7 and libssl.so.0.9.7.
As far as I can tell those both are part of the openssl package. I doubled checked and I seem to have openssl.0.9.7 installed. I thought I ran across a posting somewhere else about a bug in the new openssl that screws this up. I know i can uninstall v0.9.7 and install an older version, but I think I would have to reinstall a lot of other software (which I would rather not do).
Does anyone know a way to fix this? I thought I saw something about adding a entry to some conf file but couldn't make much sense of it. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Anyone else have any ideas? I am still trying to find the page about the bug with openssl and those libraries, but no luck so far. I have a feeling I am going to need those libraries for other software installations. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
