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 using Gentoo and trying to compile the gst-plugins-base package. The configuring phase runs well but while making, I'm getting the error :
./.libs/libgsstag-0.10.so: undefined reference to `gst_date_time_get_minute`
And a dozen of errors like this one.
Gstreamer is installed and I've checked that all the references that can't be found by the compiler are actually present in the includes.
Does someone have a clue about how to solve my problem ?
Thanks for your answer.
What is strange is that the references the compiler is complaining about are present in the .h files.
So yes, I think there may be a parameter problem, but since I'm using portage, I don't know where the error could be.
the unresolved symbol gst_date_time_get_minute should be found in libgstreamer-0.10.so and gst_byte_writer_init_with_size in libgstbase-0.10.so.
You can check it by nm <libname> | grep <symbol> for example. So the question is if the libs in /usr/lib are really available and contains these symbols
the libs are stripped and you wrote you built them. During the build (if you could see the log) there is a -s flag in the link command. If you could remove it you should be able to check the content with nm.
Since I did not manage to remove the "-s", I tried to build gstreamer from its sources.
After this, when I tried to compile gst-plugins-base from sources, I got the same error as before... But when emerging it using Portage, it worked !
