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.

after reading a couple of magazine articles I am interested in trying out Gambas (the BASIC development environment). A first web search for a recent Slackware package or SlackBuild gave no useful results. So I tried to compile from source, but that's not quite as easy, due to dependencies.
So, what I am looking for, is:
a Gambas Slackware package
if not available: a SlackBuild script
and an overview, which packages contain the dependencies.
Thanks in advance for all useful hints and pointers!
EDIT: I just found a 32-bit package at slacky.eu. I'll try how far I can get with it...
The Vector Linux packages are quite old...
The slacky.eu stuff is up-to-date, but not working out of the box on my Slackware64-13.1-stable system. I am struggling with the dependencies. I was able to meet most of them, by installing additional packages, but I don't seem to get rid of complaints regarding missing gb.qte and gb.sqlite2. The latter won't hurt, probably, but the first one certainly does!
Does anyone know, what needs to be installed in order to meet the gb.qte requirement?
I'll keep trying a little bit, but if I don't get it working soon, I'll try something else...
Possibly because the directory where it's located is either not in your linker's path (check /etc/ld.so.conf) and/or you need to add the directory where it's located, to your $LDFLAGS environment variable prior to running configure, make, etc...
I didn't read the whole thread, but are you using a slackbuild, or building from scratch? If from scratch, then examining the slackbuild can provide clues.
