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.

can anyone help me with this compile problem? grip won't make, and i can't find what i need to satisfy the dependency. the only thread on LQ with libd1 is one where finegan mentions it once as part of some other thing, and the grip mailing list hasn't sent me the confirmation email yet for me to ask them there.
i searched my hard drive with find and locate (after an updatedb) for 'ldb1' and came up with nothing. so it looks like it's not even on my system for me to change the compile path. i'm stumped.
The db1 library is a standard library which probably *is* installed but not properly configured. Try doing a ldconfig -v | grep db1 and look at the output. If you don't get any output but do have libdb1.* files in /usr/lib you could try creating a couple of symlinks.
First ls -l /usr/lib | grep db1 to see what db1-related stuff you have there. If you have libdb1.so.2 (or any other version) you can create links named what the program expects: cd /usr/lib
ln -s libdb1.so.2 libdb1.so
ln -s libdb1.so.2 libdb.so
Then run ldconfig as root and try building your app again. If it still doesn't work you probably have a pretty serious problem since libdb1 usually comes with (g)libc or gettext, both critical parts to a functional development system.
