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.

what are the package dependencies for using the ./configure script for source installations.
I've just done a fresh install of SuSE8.2 pro computer of the bare essentials so it'll run nice and fast. I'm preparing to do a source install of gnome, but when i came to compile the configure script does not work on any of the packages.
I did the minimal system intallation, adding gcc, gcc++ etc, make, autoconf plus some other tools according to the suse installation yast all dependencies are OK but i'd like to double check that.
Or are there any other problems that might be causing it, cheers..
the script was first of all just displaying C coding for sum reason, but i fixed that by running autoconf now the after the first few checks it does. then it says it can't execute /sbin/sh (thats from memory so cud be wrong, most probably is, tho defo sumpath/sh) I can't get access to my computer right now but i'll get it in a bit
i don't know how suse categorizes things, but you should install the software development package set (or whatever it may be called); bare minimum installs typically do not install things needed for compiling....
