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.

Any have the same problem?
I've reinstalled espgs, remove and install it, install al the font's packages, but nothings seems to work...
Even compilatin from source espgs, get the same error..
I've run out of ideas...
I'm just upgrade to Slackware 12.0, non fresh install....
Thank for any help...
Delete ~/.fonts, ~/.fontconfig and .font.dir of the users directories after upgrade, and it will work...
IMHO, you really should only have one slackware mirror and the slapt-get mirror(jaos.org) in there. If you have sources of 3rd party packages in there you will get official packages getting overwritten and unwanted dependencies introduced. Rather keep the 3rd party mirrors commented out unless you are specifically checking for 3rd party package updates and then download the updates to them manually.
Re Slackpkg: That seems like you have an old version of slackpkg. Are you running slackpkg 2.61?

If my awk script doesn't return anything then you don't have duplicate packages. Your script is wrong because there's a lot of packages (namely those you list) where the first field contains hyphens itself.
after make slapt-get --dist-upgrade --remove-obsolete and free almost of 600Mb of installed packages, slackpkg started to work.. now it's downloading tk and tcl as well...
About the gs command, making a google search of that error, get any result except links to the PIOR.ttf font file to donwload. Even I install it on system, but the error persist...
If I compile ESP Ghostscript from sources, get the same error...
May be a bug?
Any one can reproduce the same error?
There is no duplicated packages and theres no packages from 11 version as well..
may be this help

cat: libfontconfig.so: No such file or directory
cat: libfontconfig.so.1: No such file or directory
