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 having a strange problem with my Debian SID compiling a program (for my creative jukebox)...
when I run the ./configure script I get this error during the execution:
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... (cached) yes
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for glib-2.0 gthread-2.0 gtk+-2.0 libgnome-2.0 libgnomeui-2.0... Package libgnome-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnome-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnome-2.0' found
configure: error: Library requirements ( glib-2.0 gthread-2.0 gtk+-2.0 libgnome-2.0
libgnomeui-2.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
so now I try to reinstall libgnome-2.0 libraries:
apt-get install --reinstall libgnome-2.0
now I take a look in aptitude:
it appears with a i followed with an h...
help says that means the package is on hold... but I don't know what to do. What's the meaning of the error instructions?
