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'm trying to get streamer working, so I can setup a timelapse photo pc, but I don't see streamer on my pc (Mandrake 9.1). So I downloaded the latest version of Xawtv, but I can't get it to install, either with make or rpm -ta. I keep getting this error
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXpm
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [console/v4l-conf] Error 1
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.20447 (%build)
So From another message I tried,
updatedb; locate Xpm;
But I still get the same issue. I'm wondering if there'something missing? Something I need to install from an RPM? or something else I need to download?
Just been playing with Linux for the last couple of days. Been a lot of fun, only had to reinstall about 5 times! But the old ezonics camera works way better than it ever did in Windows ME and I just got my linksys wusb11 to work (Don't ask me how, I'm afraid to shut down the pc, cause I don't know if I'll get it to work again!)
