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 am using Mandrake9.2 and am in the process of compiling kernel 2.6.1 on HP Pavilion
For that, some of the needed software (oprofile) uses libqt-mt.so.3 which I currently don't have.
So when I try to install either libqt3 or qt3-common that claim to provide
the mentioned library, I get the following:
[root@localhost downloads]# rpm -ivh libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
qt3-common = 3.1.2-14mdk is needed by libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk
[root@localhost downloads]# rpm -ivh qt3-common-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libqt3 = 3.1.2-14mdk is needed by qt3-common-3.1.2-14mdk
libqt-mt.so.3 is needed by qt3-common-3.1.2-14mdk
I guess I am just plain puzzled by two of them being dependent on each other. Can I get libqt-mt.so.3 any other way? Installation via "Install Software" GUI that would resolve
the dependencies by itself is currently not an option( CDROM cannot be mounted).
Try specifying them both in the same line.
ie, rpm -ivh libqt3-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm qt3-common-3.1.2-14mdk.i586.rpm. Having said that, mandu has some sort of dependency solving program of its own I believe. It's called urmpi or something like that.
Whenever you have that circular dependancy problem (happens to me sometimes) usualy you can just use the '-nodeps' option when you instal the first one. It will instal ignoring all dependancies. That dosent mean the dependancies dont have to be installed, just that you can get the first one done and then install the second.
