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.

Why can I see llvm-config with "which" but not "./configure"?
./configure --with-llvm=/usr/bin --with-gsl=/usr/bin --prefix=/usr/local
I get the error message
checking for perl module Text::Balanced... ok
checking for perl module Digest::MD5... ok
checking for llvm-config... no-llvm-config
configure: error: could not find llvm-config
Why can I see llvm-config with which but not ./configure?
./configure is looking for development libraries which appear to be missing from your install.
Most of the time it is looking for include files. Some of the time it actually attempts to compile a small file that uses the include AND links to a specific function. If either compile or link fail, you get the missing message.
no the error is informing you that something is missing
"configure" uses the autotools m4 macros and the package config files "/usr/lib64/pkgconfig/"
and uses the presence of the header files in /usr/include
install the devel rpm's(llvm-devel.rpm) or dev deb's or the source for whatever operating system you are using
The program, called Trick, allows you to run simulations. It is from NASA. I am running openSUSE Leap 42.1 inside of VirtualBox version 5.1.6r110634 (Qt5.5.1). My hardware is an HP Pavillion laptop with AMD A8 processor with virtualization enabled.
I modified the configure script file by changing libLLVMSupport.a to libLLVMSupport.so and it reported "configure script successfully completed".
It won't necessarily work.
The problem is the symbols exported by the shared library - they don't have to match what is required. Second, the linking operation itself may be expecting the object files - and shared libraries don't have any. Third, the modules the program calls for may not even be in the shared libraries or have additional operating modes (such as debugging).
