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.

Ok this might be a stupid question, but I don't understand the point of slackbuilds.org, as from what I can tell it doesn't have slackware packages on the site it has a link for the source code, then a link for the slackbuilds.org file. so im kinda lost on what to really do here, am I suppost to build my own slackware packages via the slackbuids.org files then install them or what?
correct me if im wrong, but is gtk, glib and all that crap all part of the gnome desktop, because Im trying to install gtk+2.18.* and it's erroring out too, I juust don't get it, it's one error after another, try to install one thing to fix one error and that gives you and error. I never remember slackware being this bad when trying to install stuff. Any clarrification would be great
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
GTK, GLIB, etc. are not only for Gnome, but for a
hundred other applications. If you have Slackware 13,
the system version = 2.14.7 , will do fine.
Changing it : Don't do that. Will usually trash a lot
more, than you expect.
