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.

Hope you Slackers can help..i'm not a noob but can't seem to fix this. I need to install mono/monodevelop etc for an upcoming job (need to learn c#). I have installed using the binary installer from the mono site and it installed OK (to a point).
I can write programs, compile and run them from command line(using mcs and mono) but I want to use the IDE (monodevelop). When I run monodevelop from the command line it says it can't find System.xxxx.xxx.libgnomeui.xxx so I download libgnomeui try to install it and get error saying can't find libgnome so download that, install gets the error that it can't find gnome-vfs so download that and get the error that glib is wrong version (2.8.6 need >=2.9.3) so this is where i get the problem.
First problem is to do with glib, some links for glib-2.9.3 point to glib2.0-2.9.3, are glib and glib2.0 the same, I have both installed.
I downloaded and installed glib-2.9.3 and some other glib2.0 stuff just to make sure.
pkg-config is OK, PATH is OK but configure for gnome-vfs just cannot find the correct glib version.
Any ideas on the steps to either uninstall/reinstall/configure glib and/or any other steps needed to get this to work.
I have already spent 3 days trying to get this to work so any help would be great.
