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 recently installed Enlightenment 0.17 from the cvs development branch. Going through the build list, I compiled each and every package, along with each and every app so I could test Enlightenment 0.17; it looked good. Now that I'm done testing it, I am finding that I have a problem running a recently installed version of Enlightenment 0.16.7.2. I install from source after configuring, and get absolutely no errors at all during ./configure, make, and make install.
Before I even got Enlightenment working, GDM would not detect the enlightenment entry in the /etc/X11/gdm/Xsessions file, and I therefore could not select it as a session in GDM. I made a file called 'enlightenment.desktop' in /usr/share/xsessions/ (this file allows Enlightenment to be in the sessions list on GDM), and there is a line in this file that says: Exec=enlightenment.
When I selected Enlightenment, it loaded 0.17 build_10. This is obviously still in heavy development and is in no way suitable to be used as a window manager. This is even after I installed 0.16.7.2, thinking that it would install over the 0.17 install, seeing as the only enlightenment executables in the system are in /usr/local/bin and that's where 0.16 was installing to (as well as 0.17). I have tried ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/e (/usr/local/e was a directory I created to see if I could put everything in another folder) and then changed the line Exec=enlightenment in the enlightenment.desktop file to Exec=/usr/local/e/enlightenment, and this did not work.
I'd really like for this to be able to start working, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Additional information:
Slackware 10 ; Kernel 2.4.26
Thanks for the quick reply; would I need to do anything in particular (when it comes to looking at configuration files and the like) for all of the packages I installed to find out what folers it used?
Thanks in advance,
Would I have to manually delete the folders and files of the executables and libraries, or is there an easier way? I still have all of the cvs source of e17 and the source for e16... if there's a nifty trick I can use....
