In this chapter, you read about how to install and configure software that comes in the form of client libraries. This technique is not as common as configuring a server or traditional client program, but you'll still encounter it from time to time, so it's useful to see. Essentially, it involves installing a shared library and creating a configuration file for it. This technique is somewhat similar to that used by other client library software, such as the core libraries of the KDE and GNOME desktops. A more pervasive example of this technique is the ubiquitous /etc/resolv.conf file, which is used by the core network libraries. In each of these cases, the client program itself has no knowledge that the configuration file (and sometimes not even the library) even exists.

The remaining chapters in Part Two continue to illustrate additional software installations. The next chapter discusses the Apache HTTP Server.
