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 have synergy configured on most of my PC's here and find it a godsend. It is truly fantastic and easy to use... I have installed it previously on ubuntu, Win2003Server and WinXPPro without much a-do. But I am having trouble getting it to run on Solaris.
I have downloaded the tar file, and expanded it in a new directory under /local/synergy
I have set the conf file to the appropriate settings for my system here, but when I go to run synergyc (the client - as the server is another pc) I get an error: bash: ./synergy: cannot execute binary file
I have checked the permissions, it is set to root and I am su.
synergyc: java class file
So what I am thinking, is the class file the code or the compiled executable? I'm sure it's executable, but not 100% sure.
If that is fine, then why would it not execute it?
So can you provide more hints about this synergy binary download ?
Is there a readme file ?
Ok, I feel like an idiot. I went to find the download location to show you, and was misguided by the right hand side which says platform independent. But when i checked the name of the binary again I just noticed it was for OSX not unix specifically.
Taking into consideration your post on my other thread about gcc being installed (just not in the path), I am going to add it to the path and try compiling it myself. <fingers-crossed>
I have always been lazy and downloaded binaries for my linux distros. So now I am doing the quick learning thing re sourceforge and cvs et al to get this working... a good learning experience.
I'm going to go ahead and give this a go, but this is my plan:
- download source code from sourceforge
- add gcc to path
- compile the bugger
- AND SYNERGIZE my desktop! :-)
I'm getting better at this... I have learned not to put spaces or use the word SET when trying to set the path (I know, I don't know what I was thinking)...
gcc added to the path, that seemed to work well
./configure did a whole lot of things - actually I used the command: ./configure --x-includes=/usr/openwin/include --x-libraries=/usr/openwin/lib from here
That has appeared to work, but the very next instruction doesn't work... "make"
bash: make: command not found
#find / -name make
using ls -al `find / -name make`
confirms the first is a dir and the latter 2 are executables... they have the same date and file size... so I will use it explicitly... and it doesn't work. fatal errors. command failed.
Now I am stuck. Hints? (I truly appreciate your help here)
