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 using 64-bit Kali and Mint 17, and building ns-aqua and aqua3d on both has been a real whack-the-mole task.
After wrestling with 7-8 different versions of gcc/g++ in all, I now know that building on i386 is required (or just recommended?), so your .deb files have been invaluable.
Still, I've had to resolve 32-bit dependencies by installing libpcap:i386, libwxgtk2.8-0:i386, and freeglut3:i386.
Two mutually related questions:
1. Any prebuilt 64-bit executables/packages for ns-aqua and aqua3d? It may sound pedantic, but resorting to 32-bit apps on a 64-bit machine has always left me uneasy.
2. You mentioned that 64-bit installs (if they're even possible) will have reduced functionality (or something to that effect) as these are targeted towards 32-bit architectures. Any specific drawbacks that come to mind?
Please consider making a sticky for installation instructions and alternatives for x86_64 out of the scattered nuggets in this thread so you can redirect noobs like me to it straightaway.
Thanks a lot!
