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.

Distribution: Red Hat, Debian, now Gentoo and SUSE
I'm having some problems trying to build an rpm using KRPMBuilder on SUSE 9.0. I copied
the source package (the tar package) to /usr/scr/packages/SOURCES . The spec file was
created by the program and placed in /usr/src/packages/SPECS . I configured both the
SOURCES and SPECS directory locations in the settings for KRPMBuilder before trying to
build an rpm. At step five, when I select 'Start' to build the rpm I get the following error:
Building the spec file... done
Building package now...
-bb: unknown option
I left the Configure Options in step 4 blank. I didn't think I needed to specify any options. I'm
using my home directory as the temp directory. I think the option -bb means build binary but
I'm not positive. None the less, I'm not sure how to resolve this issue and I'm not able to find
any relevent FAQs or manuals on the Internet. I've Googled many times; I've searched what
used to be the home page for KRPMBuilder (there appears to be a new site in development
but not functional yet). I've even searched KDE's forums. Nothing related to KRPMBuilder.
Hopefully someone here will be able to help me.
