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.

Hi: I looked in google and searched in LQ, but the combination ARJ - 64 bits - Linux seems to have bad luck. Although the ARJ official page offers no newer then ARJ32. Perhaps if I try to get some other software compatible with the ARJ archive format?
Distribution: pclos2015, Slack14.1 DebJessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Would you point to one in particular (tarball) ?
Well, you will get one, if you do like mentioned in your other arj thread,
post # 4.
Comment the line BuildRequires : autoconf
in arj.spec : # BuildRequires : autoconf
( You have no autoconf rpm in your "rpm data base" )
... and automatic patching will happen by $ rpmbuild -bb arj.spec
The build result is in ~rpm*/RPMS/x86_64/
.. and the patched arj in ~rpm*/BUILD/arj-*
Also : # src2pkg arj-3.10.22.tar.gz
.. will automatically include any patches in the same directory.
I.e. src2pkg is the recommended method, if you don't want to use a Slackbuild script.
Here you see the tarball and the .debian.tar (the patch) in the same directory. However,
semoi@darkstar:~/src/test1$ src2pkg arj-3.10.22.tar.gz
Found source archive: arj-3.10.22.tar.gz
Deleting old build files - Done
Creating working directories:
Unpacking source archive - Done
Correcting source permissions - Done
Checking for patches - None found
Skipping configuration: Nothing to be done
Continuing - We found at least one makefile
Compiling sources - Using: 'make'
ERROR! Compiling source code has failed.
This usually happens because of missing libraries, or
badly written Makefiles or configure scripts.
Sorry! No Dependency or Requirements information found.
But you can read 'Checking for patches - None found' in the code block! It's only a matter of making src2pkg know the patch pathname!
