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 am having difficultly installing digikam 0.73 on a Slack 10.0 system. I downloaded the following and installed from source (unless otherwise noted):
*** the others I appeared to have already (kdelibs, qt, gdbm)
I don't have all the version info (at work pc so using memory here!). But imlib2 apparently needs freetype installed. Now, I'm not familiar with it but I downloaded two different packages for imlib2 to install. Then I went for the digikam compile.
1) ./configure (all YES at the end, didn't see anything missing)
2) make (BOMBS!...from memory but something about libfreetype.so not being in /usr/lib).
So, I updatedb and did a locate (I know...I really need to learn the find syntax)...libfreetype.so is at /usr/lib!!!
So now, I'm in that WTF stage? Any ideas? I'll be able to copy paste exact error later today but I'm pretty certain I got the gist. KDE version is 3.3.2 (upgraded from 10.0 default).
I don't remember where I got it from but I have 'digikam-0.6.2-i486-1mht.tgz'. I just installed it. I'm not sure how it got uninstalled, but it's reinstalled. Supposedly, digikam is supposed to come with KDE, but perhaps it was left out of the Slackware version.
