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 have openGL working on my redhat 7.3 computer via Mesa. The gears demos work fine, as does Terminus.
I want to compile and install simgear, which is required for flightgear.
I compile simgear and it ends with these lines:
checking for XmuLookupStandardColormap in -lXmu... yes
checking for glNewList in -lGLcore... no
checking for glNewList in -lGL... yes
checking for gluLookAt in -lGLU... yes
checking for glutGetModifiers in -lglut... no
checking for glutGameModeString in -lglut... no
Unable to find the necessary OpenGL or GLUT libraries.
See config.log for automated test details and results ...
The log doesn't tell me anything intelligible. These files should be the relevant ones yes?
I have installed glut and plib and mesa 5. Simgear 0.3.3 wants the metakit library now. I found it within Simgear but when I went into the directory I could not ./configure it. I realize that I probably need to do something like this:
But searching this site, my books, info for make, and the README did not turn up anything that I could use to understand how to configure this.
I also found an rpm for MetaKit-184.108.40.206 and installed that but I still could not proceed with SimGear-0.3.3
