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.

Okay, I tried to install mpd the normal way using the slackbuild provided at slackbuilds.org, but it wouldn't compile, so I figured it might be 32-bit only. I have installed the multilib packages and run the ". /etc/profile.d/32dev.sh" command as root, and then "./mpd.SlackBuild". This way it began compiling, but exits towards the end with the following error (the last lines):
here it builds fine on slackware64-14.0 (without multilib).
if you build normally (without sourcing /etc/profile.d/32dev.sh) which error you got?
You are right, it seems. I checked the slackbuild using nano, and it said it was version 14; and so was the source package. The one on slackbuilds is v.17, which I downloaded instead, and it installed just fine even with 64 bit. I've got no idea how I managed to download the wrong version. But nevermind, it's installed now
