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.

This is a problem I generally get but here's a specific issue. I have RH9.
I want to install ifplugd-0.20 (can't post URLs because it's my first post but a simple google will suffice if you're unfamiliar with it) It needs libdaemon.
So I installed libdaemon without a problem. But when I run ./configure for ifplugd-0.20 I get :
"checking for daemon_fork in -ldaemon... no
configure: error : *** Sorry, you have to install libdaemon ***"
This is a general problem I have. Whenever I install some library like this from source (and not via RPM) other softwares can never detect it (like when I installed GTK)
When I did "Make install" for libdaemon I got this message:
Libraries have been installed in:
If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
- use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
- have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'
So I added /usr/local/stow/libdaemon-0.3/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and ran the command :
Didn't get any errors!
I know it's probably something simple but it's just something I never figured out. Any suggestions will be really appreciated!
