New to Slackware. A couple of questions.


I've successfully installed Slackware 9.0, but now I have a couple of questions.

1. Is there a downloadable version of the Slackware Book, as I think it might be useful to have it available offline.

2. Does Slack use modules.conf, I was poking aroud looking for something and I found that there were no entries in it.

3. I've found that Konqueror in SU mode crashes immediately on starting, is there a work around for this as the only solution I've found involves patching and recompiling arts.

That's enough to be going on with, for now.

Cheers
Amos

You can just buy it for 20 dollars, which I don't think would put anyone out too much, and you'd be supporting a good cause (i.e. Slackware Linux).

> 2. Does Slack use modules.conf, I was poking aroud looking for something and I found that there were no entries in it.

Check out /etc/rc.d/rc.modules ..

Try using kfmclient instead (`kfmclient --command` should give you a list of options) .. I don't know if this will work however as I don't use konqueror ..

For a good Slackware book, you can try Slackware Linux Unleashed. You can find it here:
http://www.maththinking.com/boat/computerbooks.html

under Unix, Linux, X-Windows section.

Enjoy

Why can't anyone give this guy a straight answer to #1?

Amos, you can get a tarred and zipped version of the book at this link:

ftp://ftp.kpn.be/pub/linux/slackware/jph

Also, check out the following link for a site by a group that is 'updating' the book:

http://slackbook.yoshiwara.org.uk/

I found both these links at a great Slackware tips site that someone (sorry I don't remember who) posted here a while ago. Be sure to check this one:

Enjoy!
