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.

Please read the README for detailed instructions on how to build it.
There are no binary packages at the moment, as this is still considered unstable, since i only tested this desktop on VM only and not yet on a real machine.
Most of the scripts are reusing what's available on SBo project, plus some modifications or version bumps to the newer version.
Feedback, suggestions, and improvements are welcome
Wow! this is amazing work you did! I've never expected cinamon to be available on slackware, but here it is. Will definetely test as soon as I can. It should be a very nice DE for newer computers running slack!
Building now, about half way. My connection is slow at the best of times but seems a bit slower with all these net related security issues :P. I always wanted to try cinnamon but was never motivated enough to download mint.
hey Willy I know whats going on I am working through it. just switching to a different install instead of my work desktop.
I reinstalled mesa and it seems that all the configs for it are trying to default to /usr/lib on the mutilib install.
and it is building now.
I wont to do this with the pulse audio just to see what it takes to handle it with these multi media fresh Slackware backup images I keep.

pulseaudio is a networked sound server for Unix-like operating systems
and Microsoft Windows. It is intended to be an improved drop-in replacement
for the Enlightened Sound Daemon (ESOUND).
Pulseaudio will need a pulse group/user to run. You can add one with
# groupadd -g 216 pulse
# useradd -u 216 -g pulse -d /var/lib/pulse pulse
See http://slackbuilds.org/uid_gid.txt for details on the uid/gid assignments.
