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.

Thanks! I guess I'll wait until 13.1 to try Slackware again then (last time I tried was in the 11.0 days I think, and it's not a distro one casually flirts with if I recall, so I've got to be ready for at least a short-term marriage ).
Why not try it now? KDE 4.2.4 is working without problems and 13 is a very good system. When 4.3 is ready for Slack, it will not be that difficult to install it on your system, current or stable. I think we will have more services running, more open doors, more protocols to configure and more logs to troubleshoot with 4.3.
sorry hotchili, I just checked the slackbuilds and I've found no sign of policykit: does kde 4.3 works well without it?
So Policykit is a dependency of KDE 4.3?
I guess policykit is optional:
I will release a tarball for PolicyKit-KDE and Polkit-Qt in the next days. Packagers of distributions using PolicyKit (so most ones) are encouraged to pick up at least the Polkit-Qt tarball and start packaging it, since it will become an optional dependency of kdebase-workspace in 4.3 (and I hope a strong one for more applications in the future).
I remember reading about a possible 4.2.5 release from KDE and hope they can port changes like that to 4.2 and release a patch or something. Only yesterday I saw that 4.3.1 is out. Reading the release announcement I was hooked to this:"...KDE 4.3.1 is a monthly update to KDE 4.3...". So, those who pretend install/build 4.3.latest will be doing it on a monthly basis? Missed that and also missed that 4.2 too was released on a monthly basis.
