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 dont seem to be able to get the gui (zenmap) working at all. It says unable to import dbapi2.pysqlite2 or sqlite3. I cannot find such packages in the slackware repository, so is there something i am missing? Maybe i should go back to previous version...
Looks like we still have a non working executable here. I'm running 12.1 full install and I'm getting the same error. This definitely doesn't look too good. I am aware of the possibility to install sqlite, but nonetheless I somehow don't like the idea of including a program with unsatisfied dependencies into the distribution.
I don't blame anyone here, and I don't care too much about bittorrent either because I use ktorrent. Aditionally, bittorrent is not part of a full install while zenmap is. It appears in the desktop menu after having done a full install and it just won't start up. That's what I'm trying to point out here.
I just don't think it should be like that in a release version. Either those two MB of additional software should be included or zenmap excluded from the package. Imagine what would happen in the public discussion if a windows version were released with a start menu entry that won't bring up a new window. Well, ok, windows brings a lot less programs after installation - but still, even if you install some 100 programs out of the box, they should be working afterwards.
