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.

This morning (2.5 hours ago) I upgraded my Slack-Box @ work
from 8 to 8.1 ...
All went smooth, KDE 3 seamlessly dropped in and replaced
2.2 ... fluxbox, blackbox ... all neat-oh...
However, for some of the things I develop I have to test with
a generic user (that traditionally uses gnome) and that's where
trouble starts ... :/
Gnome doesn't work anymore. and I noticed that gnome in Slack 8.1
has moved from /opt to /usr ... I used the uninstall (removepkg) for
the old gnome stuff ... however... gnome won't start any more.
Any Gnome-Users out there that can give me a few hints on where
to look? I had a few gnome-upgrade packets installed (they landed
in /usr/local) ... I removed the remainders of gnome in /opt ... I changed
the paths and ld.config so /usr/bin and /usr/lib come before /usr/local/bin
and /usr/local/lib ... but it still won't start ... what else do I have to check?
