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 recently got a lenovo laptop (T 430S).
A couple of times while I was on xfce the system would
freeze and none of the Alt+Ctrl+Bkspace or
Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get to the root terminal or even
Ctrl+Alt+Del would work. I'd have to turn off the power.
When this occurred I had firefox open (with at most 3 or
4 tabs) and one or two X terminals, a mounted external
My RAM is 4GB, the graphic card is an Intel
and the system is slackware 14.0
Problem is I'm afraid it happens randomly. I was wondering whether it's software-related or some faulty hardware.
Does anybody have a clue?
I had same lockups with the default kernel in 14.0 but I upgraded it to 3.8.x and have not had any issues. I did not upgrade any of the xorg bits either.
I had the same exact issue. I'm running a core i7 desktop with 16GB RAM.
Installed Slackware 14 on a spare hard drive 4 days ago, and it would lock up after 1-20 minutes.
So I downloaded kernel 3.9.2, the huge config from Slackware repositories online, and compiled that.
System is stable and doesn't lock up anymore!
