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 trying to compile mesa from git sources, and I get this error:
checking for LIBDRM_RADEON... no
checking expat.h usability... yes
checking expat.h presence... yes
checking for expat.h... yes
checking for XML_ParserCreate in -lexpat... yes
checking for INTEL... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libdrm_intel >= 2.4.21) were not met:
No package 'libdrm_intel' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables INTEL_CFLAGS
and INTEL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details
I have an nvidia card, and had only built the nouveau drivers in libdrm-git. Now it seems mesa has an added requirement for the intel drivers. Also, mesa-git git ignores many compile options that I pass to it. What gives? Is this going to standard now, or is there a workaround for this? I know this is software in testing phase, but it would be really helpful if anyone could share a thought on this.
Yeah, sorry I didn't mentions it in my post, but I'm not building on Slackware, but on a CLFS system. I know if I build the intel drivers in the libdrm package, I wont get this issue. But since I have no use for an intel driver, I chose to disable it while compiing libdrm. Now what I wanted to know is, can't I build mesa without this driver being present on my system? I mean, is it a valid requirement, or just something that the configure script looks for? Can I safely remove the offending bit from configure?
