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 tried to compile the latest Gaim, which required updates to gtk2 and glib, and pango, and a few others that gtk/glib requires, so I did rpm -e --nodeps to gtk,glib,etc, and installed those from source.
Well, I have the latest gaim running just fine, but Mandriva 2006 tools like drakconf.real, drakclock, or anything else, no longer work.
So I 'undid' my changes, by re-installing GTK/GLIB from RPM's, and I even went and did the whole "kde" RPM set, but I still get the same errors!, namely:
Can't locate object method "signal_connect" via package "Gtk2::Window" at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 98
Does anyone know which package(s) are responsible for this so I can restore them to the Mandriva level?
