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 tried a ICQ client by the name of "licq", it required packages that I had never heard of and I could not find them using google or rpmfind.net i want something good, this Licq looked goood but cannot get it working, it required the following, tell me if you have heard of or know where I can get these packages:
those are not packages. those are files provided by packages. u can find out what these packages are by running this:
rpm --redhatprovides libDCOP-gcc2.96.so.4
then look for the package name generated by the command. u might run into a db error using this command - u need to install the rpmdb package to use the redhatprovides option.
for sure, RHL 7.3 has the packages u need as it is shipped with the licq program. u can do an upgrade install and manually select licq from the list of packages to be installed. this way, the deps will be handles automatically.
or, use gaim instead - gaim is an all purpose messenger (supports msn, yahoo, icq, aim etc.). just load the appropriate module and you can then do an ICQ chat.
I don't want anyone use sim only because i love it... But i do.... and if someone uses gaim (i didn't even try it... ) its also fine! And if its better than sim... for my purposes, sim is sufficient...
SIM don't want building on the Slackware9.0
I have a problem building SIM on Slackware 9.0
Why is it? >>>>>>:
fno-check-new -MT icqssl.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/icqssl.Tpo" \
-c -o icqssl.o `test -f 'icqssl.cpp' || echo './'`icqssl.cpp; \
then mv ".deps/icqssl.Tpo" ".deps/icqssl.Po"; \
else rm -f ".deps/icqssl.Tpo"; exit 1; \
icqssl.cpp: In member function `void SSLClient::initSSL()':
icqssl.cpp:154: invalid conversion from `void (*)()' to `void (*)(const SSL*,
make: *** [icqssl.o] Error 1 .....
When i turn off "ssl" support from the ./configure script - the program builds but crashes on start.
