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'm an experienced programmer trying to figure out the KDE
environment to create some new programs. I wanted to
take a basic program that already works for KDE and see
if I could compile it.
I chose KAsteroids, and grabbed the code, complete with
sound files, etc. from the CVS directory and put it in a
new directory all by itself. I loaded up KDevelop, and
pressed the compile project button.
Two hours later, after looking for tutorials on the web,
I had to give up. There were a large number of config.in.in
files, different make files etc. When I tried to compile the
program, it said it couldn't find the right make file even
though there were several already included in there.
Does anyone know of a tutorial on how to compile the
little pieces of KDE, and where to find out information on
what's the difference between config.in and config.in.in,
and what all the different make files are for? Why should
I do automake, what do I do if automake reports an error
saying it couldn't find the right files, etc.?
