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.

As it says in my post above I downloaded the arts-1.1 package http://download.kde.org/unstable/kde...s-1.1.tar.bz2. I download the package to My Home folder then I ./configure the files which is successful then it says "make now" so I type 'make' as root and it procedes then errors out with the above statement.
MY questions are do I need to add any options when I 'make'. Do I have to move the arts-1.1 folder to a different directory before I 'make' like /usr/local OR /home/micah/.kde.
Ok, I've been using arts (and kde) from cvs for the past three months so I was keen to know exactly which arts package you had (there are a few to choose from :-), most options are passed with the configure script (do "./configure --help" for more info). I'm thinking that you may have a corrupted download, have you tried a package from another mirror?
You can compile a source package anywhere, and here is output of 'locate libmcop.la' on my system,
Can you post the link to where you downloaded the cvs source.? One other question when you make install does it show up when you look in 'kpackages' or 'rpm -qa | grep'? How do I find out if my computer knows that it is installed or on the machine?
I have XFree86-devel, XFree86-server, XFree86-libs, XFree86, XFree86-xfs all version 4.2.1-3mdk. on my computer right now. I am going to search for updates. Do you think that message really means that it's Out of memory? I have 256mb on my Linux computer?
Any way I appreciate the help I have learned a lot in this short discussion.
I compiled qt with the options you suggested. when compiling Arts 1.1 it got passed the memory error but errored out on some of the doc files. I read some requirement for Arts is Latex+PDFlatex but I can not find that on the internet. I have currently installed latex2html installed. Do you know where to find that package or is it really important?
