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 running RH WS4: Linux version 2.6.9-5.ELsmp
My subscription ran out a few months ago...
Yesterday I downloaded FireFox 3.0 and immediately tripped-up on libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 not found. I never found an rpm specific to WS4; found a lot for fedora.
Instead decided to build it;
1. download cairo (don't forget pixman!)
2. ./configure first failed to find some pixman.pc files; kludge to PKG_CONFIG_PATH env variable
3. ./configure can't find x11.pc - file nowhere to be found on system
4. ./configure complained/failed also because "requested PNG backend could not be found".
5. abandon building libpangocairo-1.0.so.0
6. found a pango rpm - pango-1.12.0-1.i386.rpm - that says it includes libpangocairo. rpm says:
cairo >= 0.9.2 is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
glib2 >= 2.6.0-1 is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
libX11 is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
libXext is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
libXft is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
libXrender is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
libcairo.so.2 is needed by pango-1.12.0-1.i386
8. found a cairo rpm. rpm says:
error: Failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.4) is needed by cairo-1.0.2-5.i386
9. found a GLIBC rpm. rpm says...
well, you get the picture.
Use yum, you say? OK, I did install yum, but I apparently have some python version madness. If I straighten that out, do you think yum will actually be able to install the pango-112.0-1.i386.rpm ?
