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 a recent update to Slack64 current, GL xscreensavers cause KDE to crash every single time they are run. The crash actually happens as the screensaver exits (ie it runs fine until a mouse or keyboard event, then crashes).
As I said this is a fairly new problem. I think it started happening after a recent update (but not the most recent one), though it may just be I didn't notice it before because I hadn't run any GL screensavers.
I'm using the i915 Intel module.

Reason: add sentence about when the problem started
KDE 4.5.5 (Slackware 13.37) or my own KDE 4.6.1 ?
I have the same issue, on i915 driver, with GL screensavers, but only in KDE 4.6.1 (I do not run 4.5.5)... I also tested the same screensavers in XFCE, but they are fine there.
