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.

Welcome to LQ.
All you have to do is :
... and "configure will show these lines :
checking for X... libraries , headers
checking for OpenSSL directory... /usr
And next : run 'make' .
'openssl-devel' , 'xorg-x11-devel' must of course
already be installed before running './configure --with-x' :
# zypper in openssl-devel xorg-x11-devel
P.S.: /usr/local/ shouldn't be used for compiling.
/home/"username"/ is meant for that : Then 'configure'
and 'make' can be run as ordinary user.
