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 was wondering is anybody knows where to get some svga-lib tutorials?
I am developing games and I'd like to switch to Svga-lib based
I programmed in windows for a bit and made some pretty cool games
but I saw that linux doesn't have many games and since I like linux better
I'm gonna stick with games for linux.
...yeah that is odd, it was up just yesterday..<?>
the latest SDL (1.2.6) is on slackware.com/getslack (or your cd, if you have 9.1), pick a mirror and select a slack-9.1 tree under the 'l' (L) directory...you can install that if you'd like. i believe it comes with the html documentation that is found on libsdl.org, that gives some examples as well as good information :)
some recomended addons would be ..
SDL_image - useful for using images other than the native BMP support
SDL_ttf - for using True Type Fonts
SDL_net - ...networking, multiplayer
..those are probably mandatory for many apps :) , but they are seperate to keep the main SDL tree cleaner, smaller...
