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 tried to use yum to install package "pkg-config" but fail , I am wonder the package "pkg-config" is common that should be available to install ( except this package , I also found other package is not available to install ) , could advise why I can not find it by yum ? except download it from http web page ( eg. rpmfind ) how to install it ? do I need to re-config the yum setting ? thanks
yum install pkg-config
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, rhnplugin, security
Setting up Install Process
No package pkg-config available.
Nothing to do
almost everything is going to be missing if you only install package config by it's self
"yum " so guessing this is ???????
fedora 20 -testing
or did you install yum on suse and bypass zypper ?
pkgconfig is part of the development group as part of autotools
the best way to install it is to install EVERYTHING it is going to NEED also
