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.

heh, I'm learning now...since RH 8.0 is horrible at managing packages, I'm learning to install from source...it's harder than it looks. I hate it when the docs tell you it's easy with only three commands!! I never seem to be as adequate as they are, it always takes me more :-D
BTW, now that I have a Divx4 movie file, can I use mencoder to make it an MPEG 2 for SVCD. I see an option for MPEG1, but not 2.
hi i seem to have the same problem when it comes to running a script in Mplayer whoch converts a vob file to avi (im using Mandrake 9 distribution)
ive checked that libmp3lame.so.0 is in /usr/local/lib/ and it is and i ve tried running /sbin/ldconfig before running the script but still same error
Could anyone pls help ??
TIA for your help
i checked for mp3lame support after ./configure and all i found was libmp3lame for mencoder which was set to yes.. is this what is required? I also tried to install the mp3lame-devel rpm using rpm -ivh *packagename.rpm but am not sure if it was succesful well iguess not cos when i re ran the script it just gave me the same error COuld there be something im missing out ?
well there are the usual things you should always try, such as running "ldconfig" and also ensuring that you have correctly cleaned the previous compile by "make clean" and starting again. if you're still getting that error try seeing what mencoder thinks it is loading by running "ldd `which mencoder`" should tell you everything it thinks exists.
thnks for the help i finally got it to work .. yet i have another prob now (What s new!) Im trying ot convert to vcd/svcd yet i cant even get to compile mpegtools or any of it required packages In mjpegtools it keeps telling me whenever i configure that jconfig.h has been unchaged .. Anyone kknows what im doing worng pls Am i suppose to create the jconfig file or something?
