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.

I've installed slackware 9.0 and got apache, php & mysql to work (thx initself!)
now i wanted to install webmin, i downloaded rpm -ivh webmin-1.100-1.noarch.rpm and tried to install it by typing rpm -ivh webmin-1.100-1.noarch.rpm
my box replies: error: failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by webmin-1.100-1
/usr/bin/perl is needed by webmin-1.100-1
now i'm confused, both /bin/sh and /usr/bin/perl are present on my computer.
so i thought maybe i should start them as processes. so i added them to rc.local as i did with apache. but i cant find any start flags for either sh or perl.
i read the readme and i installed it 2 days ago. but i can't find a config file to edit.
i'm not sure if i'm supposed to edit anything but it bounces my username / password everytime i have a go at logging in
any ideas on that one?
cheers for your help.
I described to you a "general rule" for packages in Slackware.
Specifically for webmin, as this is a collection of scripts in perl, you don't need to compile, only install and modify some configuration files, what is done automatically when you run "./setup.sh" inside the directory you extracted webmin.
About the username and password, did you note that exist under the login button the option "[| Remember login permanently ?". If it not show up, your problem can be associated to your browser. Try upgrade it.
Also, if you are new to linux world and have a fast connection to the web, don't forget to setup a firewall on your computer. There are a lot of good articles on this subject..
I hope it helped, have some fun.
