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.

Announcing a new release of the SlackBuilds.org package browser.
Not a whole lot in this one, but the download-only and '-ri' and NICE options are, well, nice, and if you're afraid to edit the config files, this one's ready to use with your brand-spanking-new Slackware 14.
[Copied from an email sent to the sbopkg/SBo lists:]
Because it wasn't a change in sbopkg itself, I forgot to include a note
in the NEWS file about the new REQUIRES line in the .info file. Sbopkg
has long provided the ability to use queuefiles and that doesn't change,
so users are free to generate queues using the new .info info. Perhaps
the gitorious queuefile repo will make use of this. Sbopkg has also long
provided access to both the README and the .info files either from the
command line or the dialog UI. Unfortunately, at least for now, the user
will have to start using that capability of looking at the .info file in
addition to the README to get all the information since the dependency
data has been removed from the README.
Thanks to elesmod in #sbopkg for reminding me of this.
OK, upgraded here. Except you modified some keyboard shortcuts, and now I can't build a package using the left hand only on the keyboard with "B" for "Build". I also have to use the right hand to activate "P" for "Process".
