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 have Debian distro and I want to install eggdrop on it. First I got it via apt-get, but the eggdrop version was oldish (1.3.x), so I did 'apt-get remove eggdrop' and went to get tar.gz of 1.6.10. Then './configure' didn't find TCL, so I downloaded and installed TCL 8.3.4. TCL is working fine, and eggdrop's configure finds it too, and the next phase 'make config' runs without errors, but 'make' gives an error about TCL and stops.
--clip from ./configure output--
checking for Tcl library... found /usr/local/lib/libtcl8.3.so
checking for Tcl header... found /usr/local/include/tcl.h
checking whether the Tcl system has changed... yes
checking for Tcl version... 8.3
checking for Tcl patch level... 8.3.4
checking for Tcl_Free in -ltcl8.3... yes
checking for TclpFinalizeThreadData in -ltcl8.3... no
--clip from 'make' output--
./eggdrop: error in loading shared libraries: libtcl8.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make: *** [modegg] Error 127
libtcl8.3.so and tcl.h are from the same TCL release, and I've removed all *tcl* files before I installed TCL 8.3.4.
Anyone have a clue what's happening?
EDIT: btw. running ./configure with paths to libtcl8.3.so and tcl.h as parameters doesn't help.
