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.

These GNOME 2.6 packages have been packaged too quickly and without any test from the packager ! They even should not be widely available ! I have tested them on my test box with a clean Slackware 9.1installation and without GNOME previously installed (to avoid eventual "old configuration" problem with GNOME 2.6). I was really surprised : does the packager really know what he did ? Obviously no. GConf schemas are not installed upon package installation . You must install them manually before starting GNOME ! As root, under BASH, use the following command
mv /etc/gconf /etc/gconf-2.4.x # Remove GNOME 2.4.x installed schemas
export GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=`gconftool-2 --get-default-source`
for SCHEMAS in $(cd /etc/gconf/schemas ; ls *.schemas)
/usr/bin/gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$SCHEMAS
Before starting GNOME as your standard user, shutdown GConfd (gconftool-2 --shutdown) and backup up your ~/.gconf, ~/.gconfd, ~/.gnome, ~/.gnome2, ~/.gnome2_private and best, remove them to be sure they don't conflict with new configuration (Well OK, it's not really necessary but it's too badly packaged that you will be sure problems don't come from importing old GNOME configuration). I don't even think about other problem that can arise from these packages. You should better wait for Dropline GNOME if you really want polished packages.
There is no /etc/gconf and /etc/gconf/schemas dir...
I have slack 9.1 ... I haved installed gnome 2.4 before 2.6 ..
