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.

Are you compiling Xine? if so, then post the error msg.
Now I will try to guess the error, LOL. It is saying you dont have xine-lib installed or you have an old version of Xine. If that is so, you will need to download xine-lib 1.0.0 or above, that is the beta version 8 I think. Compiled it and then run ldconfig, everything should compile fine
I am installing the xine-lib beta8 as we speak. Before I did make it told me that it was going to be in /usr/local/lib and that this lib wasn't listed in any local.....search.....link........i can't remember. So anyway I added that to /ld.so.conf. I installed a different xine.lib already, maybe the wrong one??- I still don't quite understand how you decide which one you'll need. I'll post errors if (when) I get them but I really want to figure this out as much as I can.
However, you don't have permission to read from this device, so you
won't be able to use it, at least not with this account, that's bad...
Most people nowadays fix this by using a 'cdrom' group:
make sure, that you have a group named 'cdrom', become root and type
chgrp cdrom /dev/scd0
chmod g+r /dev/scd0
Now you only have to make sure you're in the cdrom group. The command
(executed as normal user) should tell you
OK so I do that...
~$ id -a
uid=1001(glenn) gid=1001(glenn) groups=1001(glenn)
I need an interpretation here. That is to say am I part of the cdrom group? I don't even know if I have a cdrom group. Otherwise things are looking good.
man id gives me something about programming
