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 was trying to compile gtkam from source. I've done it in the past with slack 9.1 and had no problem. On my new system, I ran into a problem. I wasn't overly concerned with it so I figured i would figure it out some other time.
Now I decided I wanted to update my kernel from 2.6.2-rc3 to 2.6.3. When I try and run make menuconfig i get this error.
bash-2.05b# make menuconfig

This didn't happen when I built my 2.6.2-rc3 kernel so I went back and tried that too and i get the same error.
The only major stuff i've taken out of the Default Slack install are anything referencing the 2.4.x kernel and I upgraded to the Gnome in slackware-current.
I figured it out. I had to re-install the kernel headers. I don't understand why I need the 2.4.x headers if I don't use that kernel, but appearently I do. Seems to be working fine now. Thanks for the suggestion.
