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.

im running slackware 10 and i'm trying to run audacity, the open source digital music editor. when i tried to compile it, it said i needed wxwindows(are wxwindows and wxwidgets the same thing?), so i went to wxwidgets.org like the install file said and got the latest unix/gtk+ version of wxwidgets(was that what i should have gotten), compiled it, and installed it. then i tried to make audacity and it had errors at the very end of the compilation, i tried installing it anyway but that wouldnt work. i also tried getting a .tgz of audacity 1.2.2 and installing and running it but it says "error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk-2.4.so". what i want to know is what is wxwidgets and wxwindows? did i install the right version(unix/gtk+) and did i install it right? how can i get audacity running?
ok, i reinstalled widgets and audacity compiled and installed perfectly. only problem is it complains about my sound i/o device and says i cant play any sounds or record any sounds when i try to play or record a sound. i compiled it to use portaudio v19 or something because the configure file told me i should because im using alsa...
aha! it needed to be restarted. i tried to specify /dev/dsp before and it wasn't available. but after a restart, i ran audacity and it configured it by itself. playing/recording works, but when i record something it's not loud enough. how can i fix my mic volume? i set the mic volume to max on audacity and alsamixer, but i still cant hear it unless i blast my speakers
