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 running ubuntu Warty [just installed a few days ago and I am very impressed] but I'm having a few problems installing GRAMPS during the ./configure - neither gnome-vfs-module-2.0 nor gnome-vfs2-devel library can be found - details below .. and yep when I do a search they are nowhere to be seen
checking for pkg-config... YES
Package gnome-vfs-module-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gnome-vfs-module-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gnome-vfs-module-2.0' found
**** The gnome-vfs2-devel library could not be found.
I've tried doing apt-get install for both but either get the package is not available but there is an option - and that option is already installed and the latest version - which is good !
Does anyone know if these pkgs/libs are available for ubuntu ? If so, can you point me to where they might, I've looked but can't seem to find them.
PS - I tried apt-get install gramps and it doesn't appear to be available, so that's why I've gone down the tarball route - maybe if it's not available by apt, it isn't released for ubuntu ?
