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 run my mail server on a vm using VirtualBox. The server is running Slack13_64. I've noticed that whenever there is an update to vbox, my server starts crashing all of a sudden, until I update. Anyone else notice this? Here is what happened last time (syslog output):
This error appears to be related to ipv6. Are you using ipv6? If not,
I would disable and see if that makes the errors stop.
Also, please explain about the updates. You have a host and a guest.
Are you saying this happens when updates are available for the host
but not yet installed? Or do you mean after updating the host but
before updating the guest?
No, I'm not using ipv6. It looks like it's crashing IP in general as there are some ipv4 modules listed in there as well. As for the updates: I have a Slackware host running a Slackware guest. When there is a new version of VBox, my guest starts crashing, and it only happens when there is a new version.
