So your a newbie!

You still should not hi-jack a thread. It would have been best to create a thread with your query.

Plus 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' would be one link you should look at to help us to help you in the future in that new thread.

A few links to aid you to understanding;

Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux
Bash Reference Manual
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Home Networking
Virtualiation- Top 10


The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Yup, 100% - you have now unfortunately deviated the thread from the OP's problem Can you kindly create a new thread and one of the Mods will be able to move this there

Thanks for advice. I am used to ordinary forums. There you are not welcomed to create a new thread everytime you wanna ask something.

Really? Bet the mods of those forums have loads of time on their hands...

I suppose at LQ the community strives to be extra-ordinary

You should re-read the LQ Rules. The posting on the forum is encouraged but good netiquette should be followed.

LQ is not a 'ordinary forum'. If you have a relative question to the thread then do it. But if your question is sidelined then create a Thread with proper content that is clear yet concise with pertinent information. You will get exposure & not confuse a current thread by injecting information that may not be relevant thus sidelining the current thread.

Ummm ... yes there is. And it's done. No thread-jacking,
even if your own post were in SOME way related (which this
one wasn't) but not the same as the original thread.

I split out your request and the 7 subsequent responses
into a thread of its own.


Cheers,
Tink
