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.

*** The xml2-config script installed by LIBXML could not be found
*** If libxml was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the XML2_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to xml2-config.
I did "find / -name xml2-config" and nothing turned up, so as suggested in similar threads on this site, I downloaded the rpm, only to find...
rpm -Uhv libxml2-2.5.3-12.i586.rpm
package libxml2-2.5.3-12 is already installed
That is one possible solution. It is possible to have both libxml and libxml2 installed at the same time. It is better that libxml2 be the one installed the most recently. So you could get by with uninstalling libxml2 and installing it again.
You probably need the development lib since you are doing a ./configure. The development libs are either/or. You need to remove libxml-devel and install libxml2-devel. Red Hat may have slightly different names for the development lib packages.
*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.
I queried the rpm database, and I have gtk. I take it I need the devel package too?
