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'm a newbie. just installed RH9 and ultimately trying to get squirrelmail running. i've set postfix (i think) and am to the point of installing my imap server (chose courier-imap). but installing with...
rpm -i courier-imap-3.0.4-1.7.3.i386.rpm
libcrypto.so.2 is needed...
libssl.so.2 is needed...
i first tried installing an older version of courier-imap but same error. also tried running with --nodeps but other errors appeared. did --whatprovides and eventually found in /lib that libssl.so.0.9.7a (???) is related to openssl-0.9.7a. all references online to libssl.so.2 refer to openssl-0.9.6b! how can downgrading openssl upgrade libssl? couldnt seem to find libcrypto.so.2 anywhere on my system, but of course, i may not be looking in the right place...
It sounds like your configure didn't complete ? If it did, you should have a file called Makefile
Compiling from source is always more tricky than installing from RPM/SRPM. Thats why I initailly suggested SRPM. You have to remember that even though your initial RPM wanted libcrypto.so.2, etc, when you compile from SRPM, you are effectively recompiling from source, and this process will generally utilise whatever binaries, object files, libraries are available on your unit.
Also, as you have found, there are some components missing - I always install the kernel source and kernel utils when installing Linux.
Just another thought, is there a particular reason why you need such a recent courier-imap. You might have better luck if you drop back a release or two?
is there a way to verify the configure finished successfully? looking thru each line as it ran, it seemed that everything looked good. no errors or "cant find this." at the end was a lot of text about using RPMs instead of going from source, each line preceeded with
configure: WARNING === use the
configure: WARNING === RPMs instead
configure: WARNING === of source
configure: error: ... in either case you better know what youre doing!
that last 'error' line doesnt mean anything, does it?
even SRPMS seems to have its own set of variables to F up!
Yes your configure failed - and a lack of a Makefile confirms this.
One thing I did notice when compiling from source was a friendly warning along the lines of "why are you doing this, we have a full set of binaries (RPMS) available on our website". It might be worth looking at slightly later versions of either RPM or SRPM?
