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.

How do you install firefox 23 on Slack14? I download it, firefox-23.0.1.tar.bz2, and placed it in /usr/lib64/firefox-23.0.1. moved old /usr/bin/firefox to firefox.old and linked /usr/bin/firefox to the new 23 directory.
All I get when I execute is
bash: ./firefox: No such file or directory
Are you sure it doesn't? It seemed possible that it would if the issue was that the wrong (32-bit vs 64-bit) binary was installed.
And, why only 17 available for Slackware 14?
Because there is an issue with it crashing on KDE if oxygen-gtk2 is installed. Since Slackware 14.0 installs oxygen-gtk2 by default, it's not appropriate for a security patch. Those shouldn't require an existing package to be removed in order to work.
Since Firefox 23.x conflicts with 'oxygen-gtk2' but if I'm using Xfce on Slackware 14, then it (23 from current) should be ok?
not tried with the current package, but the problem manifests on slackware64-14.0 (not on 32bit) with a package built on that platform if using oxygen-gtk2 as a theme also outside kde (there is the default).
