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.

so thats a problem. not sure exactly what she means. also, does libavcodec include divx and xvid? if not, i can install the win32 divx codec, right? how do i do that? is it easier to install divx5linux? where can i get that?
next - how do i set up mandrake 9.1 with kde to use 2 monitors?
thanks in advance, and sorry bout the long message - i wanted to be specific, and this is my first time with linux, so im not sure whats important and whats not, you know?
that's incorrect, it should be either pointing to the gtk-config script / glib-config or at least the bin directory where it lives. you shouldn't need those parameters at all.
libavcodec contains a bunch of different video methods, including divx5 and such, xvid is not there as it is a project, not a format.
ok, i tried it without those commands you said were incorrect, and configure didnt work.
Checking for gtk version ...
Error: the GUI requires GTK (which was not found)
the configure says i should use these options if autodetection fails.
--with-gtk-config=PATH path to gtk*-config (e.g. /opt/bin/gtk-config)
--with-glib-config=PATH path to glib*-config (e.g. /opt/bin/glib-config)
if i run ldconfig, which a friend told me was a good way to find out what packages you have installed and where, i get:
im afraid i still dont get you. how do i find those config scripts? i did a kfind for them, but they didnt turn up. the only thing i found was a directory /etc/gtk that had a bunch of gtk related things in them, not sure if they were binaries? i tried pointing ./configure to that directory, but that didnt solve the problem.
did it halt on this error or did it just not find anything? it didnt print anything after that, just gave me the prompt back. is there anyway i can tell it not to search the /mnt/ directory? gtk-config isnt gonna be in there anyways.
yes!! mplayer compiled and i installed it and made an icon for it and everything! my first linux app ::tear:: you guys were right, i didnt have the gtk development package installed, just the regular gtk. i did rpm drake, installed those bastards off the cd, and viola!
so how bout the dual monitor support? where should i start looking for that?
