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.

Right after I installed the most recent Alsa sound drivers for my SB live card (because I was having problems with my sound after upgrading with swaret) I have started to notice dramatic slow-downs when Xwindows first starts and whenever I use kget (in Konquerer) to download something. Each time the slowdown starts, it last for about 30 seconds to a minute. Half the time, I get a pup-up that says "Processor overload: Aborted". The rest of the time, things return to normal without a pop-up. Oh an while checking the "ps"s no other programs I can see start or stop during the time or finish fo the slowdown.
I am running slackware 9.1 on an athlon Xp 2000 system with 512 Megs of ram (so I don't think it has anything to do with the hardware)
I would just reinstall because I could use the experience of configuring everything again, but I am worried I might run into this problem again.
You guys have any suggestions?
[Edit] Problem solved by downgrading to Alsa's 1.0.0-rc2 driver from the 1.0.1 driver.
