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.

I am having trouble compiling vte-0.11.10. It keeps coming up with:

I tried vte-0.11.9 but it came up with the same error. However vte-0.10.29 did compile. The only problem is that for gnome-2.4.1 I need to have 0.11.x. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Also, I'm using gcc-3.3.2 (if that has any bearing at all to the problem?) but I also tried 2.95.3 and it came up with the same problem but with a "vteglyph.c:536: warning: unreachable code at beginning of switch statement" thats related to some difference in the gcc versions (something to do with predeclaring or something like that, I cant remember exactly) and doesnt really apply to the above problem.
Fix it. It appears that somewhere along the line, the freetype2 headers were installed into /usr/include, instead of /usr/X11R6/include where a differant set of freetype2 headers were. All I did to fix it was to copy the freetype2 header from /usr/include to /usr/X11R6/include. When I get around to it, I will also recompile freetype2 and install it properly.
