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 have an old version autoconf 2.13.
I download new version 2.56, ran the configure tthen make.
I got a meesage like
this version opf configure required autoconf 2.55.
Then I got autoonf2.55.
I did the samething, then the mesaage said
I should at least have autoconf 2.54.
You guess, next time I was asked to get 2,53 to install the 2.54.
OK, is there a smaller way? What is I don't have autoconf at all?
What distro are you using?
If redhat/mandrake you can update that very easy, for redhat it's up2date if I remeber correct but for mandrake I have no idea
If Debian, apt-get will be the answer look on www.debian.org
For the others I'm not quite sure
What it does is create an RPM (since your in redhat) after you have run configure, make run checkinstall instead of make install it will make an rpm for you install with that so if you ever want to remove it you can.
Thanks to all replies.
I have installed it in a hardway before I got all your replies.
I went back and back, updated one by one:
Here is what I did:
I installed version 2.50 in top of version 2.13; worked.
2.53 on top of 2.50;worked.
2.53b on top of 2.53;worked unless some part of document; I forced it to finish.
2.54 on top of 2.53b; worked unless last part of some documentation; I force it to finished;
2.54 on top of 2.53b; then everything is cool.
I'll look at the suggested tools to see if they can get me out
of this kind nightmare.
