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 am using a virtual terminal red-hat and want to install eclipse for c development IDE.
1. I have java 1.6 installed previouse. the java path is configured properly.
2. I downloaded the latest eclipse helios 32bit from eclipse.org
3. I unzip the tar.gz file (eclipse-cpp-helios-linux-gtk.tar.gz)
4. in the eclipse diretory, I try to launch the eclips. but got an error:
./eclipse: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by ./eclipse).
I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/i686. and no luck either.
What do you mean by a virtual terminal Red Hat. Which Red Hat do you have. Do you mean that you want to run eclipse remotely, using an RHEL server as an application server? Eclipse is a graphical program.
Thanks ischiwal. Vm means a vmware . I am using
a redhat with vmware. I have GUI desktop environment
It seems eclipse totally not start. I checked 'uname -m' and
it gives i686. And the lib exists
Look for a file in /etc/ named something like /etc/RedHat-release. It is a text file which will tell you the release info. The terminals you get in runlevel 3 are virtual terminals, e.g. VT1. So "Virtual Terminal" RedHat had me thinking it was a headless server.
I'm guessing you have a very old RedHat edition that uses glibc version 2.2.
If you have a pre-RHEL edition such as RH 9.0, then you need to use a more recent RHEL or a recent Linux Distro.
thanks Jschiwal. my redhat is release 7.3. And the /lib/i686/libc.so.6 is a link to libc-2.2.5.s0. u r right. it is below 2.3 which is requred by eclips.
is it possible to patch it ? the VM Linux is only I can find at this moment. All the years I have been doing development under Windows. Now there is a new job which use Linux. So I want to play Linux at home and start use IDE.

Red Hat 7.3 is from 2002 and is not supported anymore for a long time. Install a recent distribution, most likely you will find Eclipse in the repositories. Have a look at Distrowatch for an overview of current distributions.
