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 am running Reh Hat 9. I am a newbie to linux. I am trying to configure a program ./configure I get the following error
checking for glib-config... (cached) /usr/bin/glib-config
./configure: line 2624: min_glib_version: command not found
checking for GLIB - version >= ... ./configure: line 1: /usr/bin/glib-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 1: /usr/bin/glib-config: No such file or directory
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB was incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved GLIB since it was installed. In the latter case, you
*** may want to edit the glib-config script: /usr/bin/glib-config
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***
I cant install glib-1.2.2 because glib-1.2.10-10 is supposedly installed
I cant run glib-config
I cant install glib-1.1.10-10 because it is already installed according to the system
The config.log file has the following error
configure:2592: checking for glib-config
configure:2627: checking for GLIB - version = 1.2.2
configure:2726: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c 1>&5
configure:2652:18: glib.h: No such file or directory
I tried editing configure so that minglib_version >=1.2.2 but that didnt help.
