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.

gcc -m32 fails with the message:
"/usr/bin/ld: crt1.o: No such file: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status"
The package glibc-devel-2.3.3-27 installs the file /usr/lib64/crt1.o, should it also be installing the file /usr/lib/crt1.o, etc, so that gcc -m32 will work?
I have tried fixing this by installing similar 32-bit packages (sorry, don't have the name of the package) but rpm complained of conflicts.
This can be a real hassle as configure files sometimes test gcc by using the -m32. One
example is GNU GRUB v0.94 where the configure script failed. I also have some 32-bit applications that I would like to compile for my x86_64 system, but sometimes that fails
if I use gcc without -m32 because you get seg faults if they treat pointers as 4 byte.
Does anyone know a way of fixing this problem? I've read about this elsewhere but haven't found an answer.
