Here is a perfect tutorial for Linux newbies who want to learn
how to download, unpack, compile, and troubleshoot Linux apps.
If you're relatively new to linux, or any other Unix-like
operating system, and would like to learn how to compile and
install open source programs from their original source code, then
this tutorial is for you. In, it you'll learn how to compile the
vast majority of Unix sources. The unpacking, inspection,
configuration, compilation, and installation steps will be covered
in detail. This tutorial is also a good refresher course for those
who rarely compile programs from their sources.
