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.

Anyone else have these errors or success compiling on debian amd-64?
I would have downloaded the ubuntu .deb (isn't it just debian anyways?)
but it is i386 so won't install.
Thank you in advance.
Truecrypt has been a thorn in my side for the last week (pre 5.0) so I don't expect it to work... unless I have windows or a non 64bit proc. Neither of those are acceptable options for me. I think I must be doing something wrong...
Things this clueless man has tried:
(more for my notes)
removing g++ while keeping g++-4.1 ----> g++ isn't around so make doesn't work. (wonder what g++-4.1 is - patch?)
installing fuse2, libfuse2 and libfuse-dev ----> No change for 'make'... however 'make clean' doesn't complain about fuse not existing anymore.
I'm gonna try some sleep now... perhaps it will work in the morning like my problem with gzip...

Reason: added some detail regarding fuse

dpkg: error processing truecrypt (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
I've upgraded all I can (stable). Perhaps I should go unstable...
since i built this version on ubuntu and since ubuntu is based on the unstable branch of debian, many of those packages are not yet availiable in such new versions in the stable-branch of debian.
I made another package without those dependencies:
Well it seemed to compile fine... then I got this at the end:
/usr/bin/ld: unrecognized option '--hash-style=sysv'
/usr/bin/ld: use the --help option for usage information
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [truecrypt] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
I think I'm gonna give up for now...

The truecrypt forums are up and running again. I posted a shortened version of this thread on there. I mentioned your help and said that it was on the ubuntu forums, but did not link to the ubuntu forums. I didn't want to step on any toes.
Thank you again for all your help. I will continue to try... I'm just really frustrated and disappointed - so I need a breather.
Debian and Truecrypt 5 - yes, it does work. And the GUI looks just like it does in Windows - well almost. Drives are refered to as number 1 to 32 instead of by letter but that is fine. Was it easy? Well yes and no. I struggled and gave up but came across a kind Guru who eventually sorted it. He cursed and swore but says that now he has done it it is not actually too difficult. He is writing up the notes and I will send them out as soon as I get them. In the mean time do not despair. It is worth the wait.
