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'm having some problems with avifile-0.7.5-20020503.
My config is : slack 8.0 Kernel 2.4.5, kde3, SDL 1.2
It compiled fine on a previous install with the following config :
slack 8, Kernel 2.2.19, kde2, SDL 1.2
**I'm posting this here instead of the slack forum because I think its more software related than distro related...
it gives me the following error:
win32.c:1562: warning: #warning FIXME
win32.c:2577: warning: #warning FIXME!
win32.c:4116: mangle.h: No such file or directory
win32.c:3800: warning: no previous prototype for 'expRegisterClassA
win32.c:3806: No previous prototype for 'expUnRegisterClassA
win32.c: In function ext_stubs
win32.c:4129: parse error before MANGLE
win32.c: In function LookupExternal
win32.c:4202: warning: passing arg 2 of PE_FindExportedFucntion makes pointer from integer without a cast
make: *** [win32.lo] Error 1
and then leaves...
Has anyone had a similar problems, or does anyone have any insight at all?
Thanks, I use avi cause it uses less ressources, I have a 366 celeron MMX ibm TP iseries 1400, I'm kinda borderline for DiVx, and aviplay is the only one working for me (mplayer didn't even start, yet that was with RH... i'll probably try it)
hmm, on a system that low i'd DEFNINTELY recommend mplayer w/ the FFMpeg divx codecs, they are MUCH more efficient than the avifile ones, and with them i can watch a moderate bitrate divx file on a lowly p200 mmx... not even slightly possible with other codecs. incidentally, mplayer have *jsut* released their very first rpm if you were having troueble compiling it, right at the bottom of the download page.
it does more than any other player you have used, i promies. it can output full screen using erm... 14 different interfaces i think, 5 of which don't even need X running. and version 0.90 is gonna be declared stable next week. kickass. also include THE fastest and best divx encoder/ripper i've ever used
Plus a wonder happend - downloaded mplayer, compiled it and everything worked just fine except gui - as always!!!??
Why don't the mplayerguys fix that permissionthing with the gui?
I know it's easy to complain and whine - but that stumps a lot of people.
cos the gui is alpha. not stable. they think it's *slightly* more important to make an amazingly good player core than a pretty front end, and they've done exactly that. even the gui aurhot says it's crap. but you really don't NEED a gui... so much quicker to go from console.
