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 fluxbox as my wm. I'm trying to setup fluxspace now. When I run the configure script I get the following errors at the end associated with python:
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking for python version... 2.2
checking for python platform... linux2
checking for python >= 2.2... okay
checking for headers required to compile python extensions... found
checking for python-config... no
checking for Py_Initialize in -lpython2.2... no
checking for Py_Finalize in -lpython2.2... no
checking for Py_IsInitialized in -lpython2.2... no
configure: error: Unable to determine proper Python link flags.
I'm not sure what I need to do to resolve this. Anyone have any ideas?
Try checking the README or INSTALL, or ./configure --help to find if you need to specify the path yourself, either editing the file or with a --PREFIX=/path . Also maybe check if where python is installed for your distro is a generic place.
