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.

In a terminal type: gcc -v and post here what it says.
My example: when I went to install Evolution (mail program) it said I needed gtkhtmlxx.xx, when I checked to see if it was already installed it showed I had a new version installed but still wouldn't continue. I found the exact version of gtkhtmlxx.xx it was asking for at Red Hat Network and installed it even though it was an older version. It let me complete the install of Evolution and then I noticed the Red Hat Network Icon was showing a red exclamation point meaning something needed to be updated. I launched up2date and it re-installed the newer version of gtkhtml and Evolution still works and everything is happy. Maybe it was being a little picky that day but I'm not complaining since everything works fine.
