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 ve compiled HandBrake from source as well as installed it with success(--enable-Gtk).
However,many buttons (among them the 'Start' and the 'Pause' ones) do not seem to work at all-they are colored grey and I cannot click on them.Probably,it's a gui malfanction.I would appreciate any other aspect about it.
Firstly,I would like to inform you that everything went perfect and that I can now enjoy a full-featured Handbrake thanks to your contribution!So,I really appreciate your willing to help me and especially that you did it much faster than any other time I asked for some help on that forum.
As for your inquiry actually,I meant(by saying "further details) how I could apply the patch as I had never before tried to apply anyone whether it was a kernel patch(most common) or a software one.As for configure/compile Im a bit experienced on that.

Well, typically patching is pretty easy, the only thing you usually have to play with is where the patch file is relative to the source code. Most people like to use the "-i" option which will apply the patch in place using the filenames given inside the patch. You should read the man page if you have to do it again because there are various ways to specify the patch, the original file, and the output file.
