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 am a parttime writer for a bunch of german Linux magazines and I realized that some of my articles might add up to a good Slackware Tutorial. I added some screenshots and glued some of the articles together. In the future I will try to keep it updated and add more stuff. So maybe this will turn into a documentation project at some point. Since I felt that a german newbie tutorial for Slackware is missing. This might be of interest to some of the german folks around here. I know it won't be of much use for most international users but I thought I might just post it here, since it's a good forum for Slackware and some germans might stumble over it. ;-)
(no 5points yet, so I guess you have to copy/paste)
Here's what's in the Tutorial so far:
- Slackware installation / HD-partitioning
- X-Setup and basic use of an editor
- Changing the default runlevel
- Dialup Connection using Roaring Penguin
- Dropline Gnome installation and setup
- Printer configuration using cups
- pkgtool program installations
- Nvidia Binary Driver setup
- GPU-Overclocking using nvclock and yanc
- An interview with Todd from Dropline Gnome
Here's what I want to add in the near future:
Kernel compile and upgrade
modules.conf and startup scripts explained
more tuning stuff, such as hparm etc.
Any ideas? Feedback? Help? Translations?
As far as I know adsl-setup doesn´t work well for common users, and it doesn´t provide a graphical interface. As I am trying to write a newbie tutorial I thought I might stick with roaring penguin.
netsetup could be a part of a more detailed description of all the Slackware adminscripts. I wanted to add more stuff about the startup scripts as well. I am also planning to describe the package creation process in the future...
Thank you. I covered this already. The KDEI packages have all the support for german and Gnome can be easily localized by choosing the right language at the gdm-login. This works surprisingly good. My mom uses it and has no problems at all. Even with the € and all other special letters: äöüß
