I don't call myself a programmer, however, I do know bits and pieces of a few languages. One thing that I have found difficult is to find information on the internet about how to program for the linux operating system. I know how to basically create source files, and compiling one or two files into an executable, but what are the steps of creating a full fledge linux project (GPL or other similar license)?

I would like visitors to post some helpful resources for programming in linux, it can be for any language. I would like to create a resource of such for visitors who are interested in programming but do not know where to start.

Well... you have the compiler already installed for you with your Linux distribution. That compiler (usually gcc) can handle C/C++ compilation. Writing source code can be done in vi (or any other text editor you have, vi's very good though and not difficult at all - the basic commands are very simple). Once you have a simple C/C++ programm written, execute gcc --help and you'll get a list of commands. I'm sure there's one for building, compiling, etc. I don't know about packaging (probably not, you'll need some package manager like RPM on RedHat) but that can be done with the package manager you most likely have (RedHat has RPM, read it's help and man pages for more info).

Hope this helps a bit,
