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.

hi everyone. I have been installing all of the packages for gnome2 and am having some problems with gdm. I guess it needs libglade 2.0, and i installed that, but it still says that i need "libglade-convert" the wierd thing is that a) it finds the libglade 2.0 package ex:
b) this is the error message (and yes, i ran ldconfig):
checking for libglade-convert... no
configure: error: libglade-convert (from libglade 2.0) is needed to build gdm.
and c) when i ran "locate libglade-convert", it found it, but only in the source directory (this was right after an "updatedb"). ex:
What should I do? I am pretty sure that I installed libglade correctly, now i am worndering if i should just manually copy libglade-convert & libglade-convert.am somewhere. Has anybody ells run into this problem? where do you guys think that i should put these files?
here's the attributes of the files (i wanted to check to see if any of them are executable):
PACKAGE # 56 OUT OF 60 AND NOW IT DECIDES TO GIVE ME TROUBLE!!!
ooh yeah, i'm installing everything in /opt/gnome2, but libglade went to --prefix=/usr. will that mess things up? (i presume not, because the files didn't even get out of the source folder). will it screw up anything if i now installed it to --prefix=/opt/gnome2 (have 2 libglade2's on my system)
cool, thanks.... i don't mind at all (i'd rather start from console w/ that cool program you told me about a while ago)
neo <---- the man w/ the master plan
i've been investigating it though, and it seems like a common problem. you need to do something before compiling libglade, but i haven't figured out what yet. i'll post when i do (if i don't loose too much interest b/c i don't need gdm)
