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.

It was a toss up to post this in this forum or the "programming" forum, but since this is more related to the software itself, I posted it here (mods feel free to move it if necessary).
I'm taking an assembly language class this semester and while all the assignments are in linux using NASM (yay!) they want us to use 'ddd' for debugging. (It's installed in the labs)
I installed it in mandrake 9.2, I'm using version ddd-3.3.6-2mdk from rpmfind (urmpi didn't want to connect yesterday it seemed) and it installed ok..
But when I try to run it, it comes up...everything seems fine, but it doesn't respond at all to mouse or keyboard...I can click on anything but nothing happens, with the exception of the "tip of the day" screen at the beginning.
Running it in console I get the following errors:
Warning: XmStringGetNextComponent: unknown type 143470616
(Annoyed? Try Edit->Preferences->General->Suppress X Warnings!)
followed by a few other errors exactly like that one but with a different number.
My wild guess is that it's using Motif, and
you haven't got it installed (and LessTif still
hasn't got quite the same features). My suggestion
is to uninstall whatever you have, and get
the source and compile it yourself.
