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.

Can't get Audacity to compile
I'm trying to get Audacity to compile, but I keep getting the following error message:
effects/ToneGen.cpp: In function �wxSizer* CreateToneGenDialog(wxWindow*, bool, bool)�:
effects/ToneGen.cpp:283: error: ISO C++ says that these are ambiguous, even though the worst conversion for the first is better than the worst conversion for the second:
/usr/local/include/wx-2.6/wx/gtk/choice.h:34: note: candidate 1: wxChoice::wxChoice(wxWindow*, wxWindowID, const wxPoint&, const wxSize&, int, const wxString*, long int, const wxValidator&, const wxString&)
/usr/local/include/wx-2.6/wx/gtk/choice.h:46: note: candidate 2: wxChoice::wxChoice(wxWindow*, wxWindowID, const wxPoint&, const wxSize&, const wxArrayString&, long int, const wxValidator&, const wxString&)
make: *** [obj/effects/ToneGen.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/sources/Audio/audacity-src-1.2.3/src'
make: *** [audacity] Error 2
Does anybody have any idea what this means, or how to resolve the problem? (I'm using SuSE 10.0 with an i386_64 architecture)
I have wxGTK 188.8.131.52-4 installed (I think wxGTK is part of my problem)
Sounds like there are issues with the code. Maybe you got a bad download. You can try download it again and checking the MD5 checksum. Also, if your using SuSE you should have yum. If that's the case, try typing this: "sudo yum install audacity" it will download and install a version of audacity pre-compiled for your version of SuSE. Alternatively, find RPMs. Unless you are just insistent on having the latest version, my opinion is to do things the easiest way possible, and that means using automatic package managers first, RPMs second, tarballs third, and source last.
I doubt a redownload would work. wxGTK packages provide only specific version libraries. They don't provide older libraries like some other packages do. So where wxGTK-X.X.X would provide a libwx_gtk-X.X.so a newer version, wxGTK-Y.Y.Y would only provide libwx_gtk-Y.Y.so and not include wxGTK-X.X.so. In other words, newer version of wxGTK are not backwards compatible with older versions.
and judging by the compile errors, you couldn't try to symlink a link with the name of the old library version to the new library as there looks to be incompatibilities between the headers of different versions of wxGTK.
To make a long story short, it looks like to me that a choice will have to be made, if you want to get audacity to compile, to install the correct version of wxGTK or not.
I know the problem. I like to work with audacity but al the time things are missing when compiling.
Isn't there anybody who knows which libraray's in what order has to be installed. Some i cant even find. I tried several version.
I think I really messed up my Linux with it and seriously considdering to start all over again.
Two versions of wxGTK isn't working!
Now to let you know, you need more than just the packages. You need to get their devel packages also. Without the devel packages, compiling audacity from source will not work. You do not need to get devel packages if you compile the required/optional packages from source though, only if you use RPMS.
You need to have required/optional packages installed first before you can compile audacity (or any program for that matter).

A few minutes ago, I got tired of trying to get audacity to run on my SuSE 10.0, so I decided to try to install the windows-version with wine 0.9.1. I was quite surprised to find that audacity seems to run fine with wine, while I can't get the linux-version to run. I think I'm going to use the windows-version, until I find a solution to my problem.
There is an Audacity in Mandriva 2006. It is not the latest version. I don't know which one.
I'm running edubuntu 5.1 at the moment. If i want to install Audacity it says:
"Cannot install 'Audacity' Installing this application would mean that something else needs to be removed. Please use "Advanced" mode to install 'audacity'.
When I do so I get 2 Depends (libd3tag0 and libmad0) which are not installable.
