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.

Everything was working fine. I decided to install ABC client for bittorrent when i tired to compile it didn't work searched around found out i didn't have all the glibs only for reading not make exacutables.
so i #swaret --install glib as soon as it finished. nautilus would not open. i figured it crashed some how. "#killall nautilus" tried again - nothing. so i typed it in command "#nautilus" and it gives segmentation fault. so i decided just log off go to command then start X back up. But that gave me "Segmentation fault" so i rebooted... now i get a ton of mudules unrevoled errors booting, i tried to startx it crashes and i get a very large list of:
"Symbol ***path to module*****.o is unresolved"
waiting for X server to shut down
now when i boot up i can't even "ls" i can cd into directories but i can't list or anything. i upgarded the kernel earlier today and tried to boot on both kernels 2.4.26/27 no change.
Slack 9.1 Kernel 2.4.27
EDIT: when i swaret --search glib to see what exactly i installed for glib it doesn't even reconize the slackware version i'm using and recomments i upgrade to v8.1+
