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.

I think there was a update in KDE 3.5.9 to 3.5.10 in stable on 12.2. Anyone remembers it?
I would like to try a new KDE, but without leaving the stable branch. But wait for it until a new version of Slackware comes out is too long!

Phonon in Qt is missing support files needed by KDE, so this package
restores the missing pieces. The Phonon library, include files, and
pkgconfig files will remain in the Qt package, as those are the most
up-to-date versions. This package will contain the xine and gstreamer
backends and other files needed by KDE. The gstreamer backend source
is taken from the newer sources in Qt, not from the standalone Phonon.
Sorry about the misfire last time... this stuff should work. :-)
Use -phonon -no-phonon-backend options.
Now, that was quick! Thanks to Pat and the crew for reacting so quickly!
My upgrade to 4.3.3 was fine, except that Help Center started warning something about it can't write to 'khelpcenterrc'. A quick look showed the file was owned by root(?). Deleted it and the Help fired up without warnings, automatically recreating the file.
I've updated my current installation, too.
But under KDE 4.3.3 (x86_64) I noticed strange
behavior of different apps. So, hangs my Konsole
somethimes, on auto-completion using the tab-key
and so it looses for a while it's content. Another
strange thing this is the fullscreen mode in VLC
(1.0.3-AlienBuild), if it is on, it don't hide the
KDE panel. This happened through the update from
KDE 4.3.2 to 4.3.3.
Maybe this has something to do with the updated
qt version, so KDE needs to be rebuild against this
