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 have been trying compile Octave 2.9 and I am running into problems on the make step. The make process terminates with the following error: /usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.1.2/libstdc++.so: undefined reference to `_Unwind_GetIPInfo@GCC_4.2.0'
I have been searching on this issue for several hours, to no avail. From what I have learned this function is new to g++ version 4.2 and this appears to be a common error.
As my goal is to run Octave, not screw around building it, I would be happy with a binary distribution for it. I spent a couple of hours on that path to no avail also. I located an RPM for it and attempted to use YaST to install it. It accessed the CD, downloaded a bunch of dependencies, etc and then terminated - still no octave apparent. If I try to use the terminal with "rpm -ivh octave..." to install that way, it complains about a bunch of missing dependencies for items such as gnuplot, even though they ARE installed.
Go here to search for Octave, just put Octave in the search field and hit "search", on the nesxt page you will find that the package you need to install is "TeXmacs-18.104.22.168-3.1.i586.rpm". Click on it to take you to another page with download links and information regarding dependencies which will be under "requires". Bookmark this page, no rpm distribution user should be without a link to this site which gives allot of information regarding availability and dependencies.
Thank you for the suggestion. I will give that a try tonight and post the results.
After reading your response, it realized that I saw that TeXmacs link before when I was searching in YaST for Octave. Of course in the midst of my frustration it didn't occur to me to install it as it just looked like an irrelevant link.
