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.

Ok, I am running Gentoo, and I have KDE, GNOME, and several other window managers installed. I emerged xchat, and for some reason it's not installing the GUI, the only xchat executable I get is xchat-text-2.
well xchat 2.0.x is on gtk2, xchat 1.8.x is gtk. if gtk2 is in the use flag for 2.0.x then it should work. normally called xchat-2 on gentoo, which i *think* is because of the slot thing in portage. when you emerge, check what flags are actually listed before the make starts
Ah... I scanned through the configure and found this...
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.3... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.
Cannot find GTK! Not building GTK FrontEnd.
I'm going to try re-emerging GTK and see if that fixes the issue.
I got it working, I had to upgrade to the latest version of XFree86. I also had to drop the ATI drivers, and use the DRM drivers instead. It turns out that after upgrading to the latest version of XFree86, x-chat compiled with no problems, and gave me my gui.
