Miscelanious Questions


Ok , I know that the questions I'm about to ask might sound/be stupid .. but this forum is my only solution

(I woun't mind answers like "read man <...>" , I'm always opened to man pages)
(I guess this probably matters so : my operating system is Slackware 9.1)


1) Can I see a list of all currently *installed* programmes (rpm/compiled/etc.) ? How ?

2) How do I *uninstall (remove the binarys and everything related to it: documentation etc.)* a programme (not rpm) ?

3) From what file does Slackware get it's "on-login" quotes ?

4) How do you check a list of all logins ?

5) How many ways of killing a login is there ? Which are they ?

6) How do you instantly terminate ALL logins ?

7) How do I see (and modify) "enviroment variables" ?

well.. I guess this will do for now , there will be more ..

oh wait ..

8) Can you recommend some good online books/websites on Linux / Unix / TCP/IP ? (except LinuxQuestions.org :>)

Hi there introuble!!!

I cannot answer all your questions but:

1) Go into /var/log/packages. There you will find all Slack packages installed

2) To remove a Slack package, go into /var/log/packages and type removepkg <package_name.tgz>

7) To you mean path? Usually, you simply export variables to your path. A very common question is adding Java to the PATH. it's done like this:

PATH=$PATH: /your_path
export PATH

For some good hints about Slackware, I would recommend this link:

http://members.cox.net/laitcg/new/intro.html

even securing Slackware is very well described in there!.

Good luck mate!

Wow, I get to start out on this forum answering a question!

"Linux Complete from Sybex" would be the title. You'll find the ISBN number on the inside of just about every book. It's sort of like an IP address for printed material.

Advanced bash scripting guide (starts off fairly simple but soon gets more complicated, but lots of useful info)
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

4) list of all currently logged in users : type users

I don't know how to force someone to logoff though.
