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.

today I tried to install some new software on my slackware 13.37.
i download recordmydesktop from slackbuilds and tried to install it as usually. normally I never get problems with slackbuilds but this time I got an error.
[code]./libotr.SlackBuild: line 80: /usr/bin/make: cannot execute binary file[/quote]
On line 80 there is only make.
I also tried to install anything else from slackbuilds or a software from source but always got the same error.
I'm logged in as root.
what could be the problem? is my make corrupt?
thanks in advance

I have experienced this last year while compiling some stuff. Helpful folks at the IRC pointed out that I could have updated from -current where a 64bit make was pushed and a several hours later was fixed by another update on current.
What I did was remove make and install it again via slackpkg using my mirror.
See ChangeLog on updates for make in 32 bit last November or so.
