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 trying to use Libreoffice - I installed 3.6.4 from slackbuilds.org. When I run swriter, scalc, or sbase, I get the following errors:
/opt/libreoffice3.6/program/../ure-link/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /usr/lib/libproxy.so.1)
Failed to load module: /usr/lib/gio/modules/libgiolibproxy.so
If I run the following two commands in libreoffice3.6/ure/lib, these errors don't show up anymore:
bash-4.2# mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.orig
bash-4.2# ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6
I guess that's the correct solution? Should that be incorporated into the slackbuild?
Also, when I run sbase, it crashes immediately after creating a new database - no errors on the command line, just a crash. Any hints or suggestions?
I had the same problem, which was making the GUI in libreoffice look like crap. I found the same solution you did (namely, renaming libstdc++.so.6). All the error messages went away and it seems to work fine now..
I tried alien's package again, and the error happened again. This time I realized that it was pointing to something in my local config directory, though, so I deleted that directory. Then I was able to open lobase, and things are looking OK so far.
Thanks for all the responses. Still not sure what was going on with the SBo package, but it looks like I may be OK with the alien package.
