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 trying to compile KDE 3.5.10 on Slackware 11. Everything was going well until I tried to compile the kdebindings. It keeps asking for libGL.la. I have libGL.so and its aliases and I have libGL.a, but I do not have libGL.la. I have searched this forum and the web and am even more confused. I am not using any proprietary drivers. (they don't work with my card) I built the latest Mesa but I haven't installed it yet because it didn't build this lib. This is the ghost lib or something, because I've found about 20 wrong versions of what it is and where it is. If anybody has this I'll gladly give you my email addy and maybe you could mail it to me. Thanks in advance.
Thank you! I was getting answers that were something like that, except that none of them just came out and told me it was some kind of text file. I mean, I knew that .la meant "libtool archive" I just didn't know how to make one. I'm going to try the blank file thing, alright, but is there a way to auto-generate such a thing with libtool? I would love to be able to do that.
Thanks everyone! The blank file did not work nor did the one from Debian, but I found one from Ark that did. Now I have KDE 3.5.10 running on Slack 11! I've decided to play with libtool awhile and sort out how to do this for any lib, as well. - Just in case.
