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'm doing a layout rewite for repository list
But new version for some people is less usable.
(You can found the oldstyle page at http://slak.homelinux.org/old.php)
The main problem is the 'mixed' entries.
Now 'mixed' meaning that a single repository contain package for both i386&x86_64 and/or multi slackware version (as Alien, Niels, Workman and Slackers).
For now, search engine filter for architecture and version as in repository definition.
Remove 'mixed' search method require a rewrite of search engine.
yes, I may do this.
But require your suggests to do a good engine.
I may do a filter for package architecture instead repository architecture, but the main problem is the 'noarch'.
In official repository for slackware64, many 'noarch' package contain some non-binary file placed into /usr/lib64, so files are 'noarch' but package is not.
I'm also wondering if you will provide searching and URLs for repos other than those which are FTP or HTTP?
All of my Slackware package repos are via gopher:// protocol only - and it's likely to remain that way, but if you are inclined to include package resources in gopherspace too then I'll be more than happy to provide you with links (Once I follow AlienBob's advice and include the "Manifest").
I never used gopher, but if is not difficult to implement a downloader I can include your links. For now I'm using the php function "fread".
the official link is slak.homelinux.org; it is a redirect to www.z01.eu/slak
if you configure a tinyurl be sure to point to the official link. Many time, in past, this link was changed (slakfinder.frattocchie.it, slak.frattocchie.it, www.frattocchie.it/slak, 01.webuda.com and other) and I can't to guarantee that It does not change other times :-(
