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.

Running Slackware64 & Xfce4.6
Firefox 13.1 is loading extremely slow & crash firefox + Xfce. Updated all addons & plugins... only AdBlock and NoScript are enabled. Add 2GB Ram to 2GB prior for total of 4GB.
Upon closing Xfce the following appears:
firefox:2322:Gtk-Critical **: IA_gtk_clipboard_set_with_data: assertion 'targets 1= NULL' failed
Note: Child process recieved 'Goodbye', closing down.
Message: xfsm-shutdown helper.C:268: Using HAL to shutdown / reboot the computer.
(Xfce4-session:2272) Warning failed to shutdown the GConf daemon on Logout.
I googled the messages and would appreciate if more experienced folks here could help me learn to configure GTKConf to work withI've firefox properly and GConf which I would like to keep around for gnome app dependencies as needed. Links to tutorials or related information are welcomed.
There is a more recent thread about memory leaks in Terminal. That could crash both XFCE and Firefox as described here. Firefox alone can't crash both.
I've seen that thread, but I've never seen the problem on my system with Xfce 4.6.2, 4.8, or 4.10, and all on current. I've had problems running Thunderbird in 4.10, but not Firefox or SeaMonkey and it appears to be a known bug in Thunderbird.
Ran top and cpu usage & memory don't seem to high for live stlive stream, open terminal, multiple browsers. Changed the WM, JRE was upgraded and changed a few browser configs per the following: http://fixexe.com/how-to-fix-website...ed-up-firefox/
Loading pages is still very slow. GTK error message is gone. Have Geostream message on shutdown now??
