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 am trying to compile Apache 2 on Debian Etch, but I keep getting the following error, even though I have all gcc, g++, cpp, and c++ packages installed.
APR Version: 1.2.7
checking for chosen layout... apr
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
Applying APR hints file rules for i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
setting CPPFLAGS to "-DLINUX=2"
adding "-D_REENTRANT" to CPPFLAGS
adding "-D_GNU_SOURCE" to CPPFLAGS
(Default will be unix)
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
configure failed for srclib/apr
That is how I have it now, but the thing is that I would like to compile it from source for performance improvements... it is for a web-based in-house order tracking system at our shop, and its based mostly on CGI/perl... also uses some mysql, which I intend to compile from source next, after installing apache. Also, I want to install everything in a custom directory, to help maintaining and version tracking easier.
Apache 2 compiles fine on ubuntu, but I only get this on Debian Etch..
The clock is set to the correct time... I guess Im not sure why that would matter, but is there something else I should check here?
last time I had a sanity check error it was because of the time on my machine
I had changed the date to 16/8/05,while looking at the calendar and the file on the machine which gave sanity check error was compiled on 16/07/06.
thats the reason I told you to check that.
When typing /lib/cpp, it just hangs there doing nothing until I press Ctrl-Z
appears to be in some sort of infinite loop... this is probably the problem, how could I correct this... there is not /bin/cpp... I have every packing installed containing the words g++, cpp, c++ or gcc from within synaptic, even the -dev, -dbg, -pic etc... I have all libstdc and libstdc++ packages installed, i have build-essential installed as well as all of the recommended packages. Im not sure what else to try.
