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 downloaded the slackbuilds openoffice.org files, extracted them, added the original source, ran chmod +x openoffice.org.SlackBuild, ran ./openoffice.org.SlackBuild, then found the resulting .tgz and installpkg'ed it. I was able to get through all of the steps listed without any error messages and everything seemed to be going well. However, now when I navigate to opt/openoffice.org3 (the created folder) and attempt to run any of the programs from kde nothing happens. When I attempt to run them in terminal I get the following message:
/usr/bin/soffice: line 98: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/pagein: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/soffice: line 104: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/ure-link/bin/javaldx: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/soffice: line 129: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: No such file or directory
is there some reason these files wouldn't be in there after a normal installation? I read the howto on slackbuilds.org several times to make sure I got all the steps right, and have tried uninstalling with removepkg and reinstalling and the same thing keeps happening. I'm sure its obvious to most of you, but what am I missing?
Did you check the integrity of each of our downloads with the md5sums that are published? I've had plenty of corrupted downloads in my day. I'd make sure there are no other issues first. Then move onto the next thing. I've seen things exactly like this myself.
