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.

X86 / Mandrakelinux 10.1 (Official) / Installation
Problem is building the ATI driver module for my graphics card which without proper drivers is scoring a phearsome 150fps with glxgears. During the rpm installation of the package it gives a message saying everything went almost ok, but two steps are required first before the driver runs; the first is to go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod and run a make.sh script which bombs with the following results:
ATI module generator V 2.0
skipping patch for 'drmP.h', not needed
skipping patch for 'drm_os_linux.h', not needed
assuming new VMA API since we do have kernel 2.6.x...
doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher
make -C /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-12mdk/build SUBDIRS=/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x modules
make: Entering directory `/lib/modules/18.104.22.168-12mdk/build'
make: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/22.214.171.124-12mdk/build'
make: *** [kmod_build] Error 2
build succeeded with return value 0
duplicating results into driver repository...
You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx
and then call ./make_install.sh in order to install the built module.
This process creates a broken link to the module fglrx.ko
Yes I have, I carefully went through the list of prerequisites making sure I had done them. What does the "no rule to make target 'target'. Stop." mean? I've seen the message tens of thousands of times but my head goes "you screwed up" and I usually re-untar whatever I''m working on, check for unset environment variables and go again with success. Are you able from the error messages able to determine what info (or what sort of info) I should have in these directories?
