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.

Hallo, I just installed Slackware 10.2 at work (not connected to the internet).
It boots up in CLI mode. When I want to startx it works perfectly as a root, however, when I am logged in as a normal user, it gets the following error:
There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The message returned by the system was:
Could not read network connection list
Please check that the dcopserver is running
How can I check it? What am I supposed to do?
One more thing, When I was creating normal users
1. useradd name_of_user
2.created the password for each user
There are no user directories in /home directory
That may be the reason. How can I assign home directories to particular users?
Yeah, besides the lengthy post prior to this one..I forgot to chmod my /. under my user, which is why .kde couldn't write a new session.
After that, I chmodded it home/<username>/.* which may or may not have been a requirement, and PRESTO startx-->KDE.
Sorry for wasting any time you spent looking at this, if it helps great, if it's gibberish, post back as I have email notification up and am willing to help as long as I don't break your box. I do know the difference, too...not a hero/just another happy n00b w/ experience
