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 am on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.5 for 64-bit x86_64 and I try to install xmgrace.
During the ./configure command, I have this message :
checking for X... no
After research, this message is due to the fact I have not installed libX11-devel. So, I try with yum but no libX11-devel...
However I find it on the rhn (libX11-devel-1.0.3-9.el5.x86_64.rpm). I download and install it. Now I have problems of dependencies, I need :
- libX11 = 1.0.3-9.el5
- xorg-x11-proto-devel >= 7.1-2
xorg-x11-proto-devel can't be found with yum, I download it by the rhn and install it and again, problems of dependencies, I need mesa-libGL-devel.
mesa-libGL-devel is not available by yum. I download it by rhn and install it and a new problem of dependecies, I need libX11-devel!!
So I'm disappointed, for install libX11-devel, I have to settle the dependencies which need libX11-devel...
My questions are :
- Is it normal that the devel packages mentionned above can't be found with yum?
- How I can install libX11-devel?
