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.

Yeah unfortunately that was my site where I hosted my builds. I decided not to renew and I figured I would just use my ISP's provided free webspace and I found out they no longer offer it. So right now I am trying to find a alternative solution.
Thanks again dugan!
Has somebody upgraded also fontconfig's slackbuild? I'm on the current at the moment.. For libXft there seems to be no patch for 2.3.1 on that gentoo's http://gitorious.org/lcd-filtering page.
Edit2: Wait a second. Slackware-current doesn't even have fontconfig 2.9.0...
And edit3: Looks like fontconfig doesn't build on my slackware-current. http://pastebin.com/DbXpDAxd From the beginning that pastebin misses some fontconfig-2.8.0/filename..
yesterday's current upgrade broke my fonts in Firefox. Since the fonts in KDE are ok, there must be something wrong in Cairo, right? Unfortunately I've rebuilt and reinstalled it using Daedra's slackbuilds, to no avail. This made me think - upgrade to which package had caused such a mess? I didn't install any new packages from xfce series, so there are not too many to blame - only mozilla-nss comes to mind.
Problem solved - apparently it was no Cairo, but Freetype problem. Reinstalled and there they are - beautiful fonts in Slackware again
Sorry for bumping. Do I need to re-compile Firefox (say 15.0.1) for 32 bit Slackware (13.37) every time there is a patch for Firefox? I've read this somewhere that I need to re-compile using the 64 bit slackbuild script.
