How is Alien_Bob's wiki page related to the thread topic? Other than;
Maybe you should have referenced the link Slackware related
but that link within for Slackware Linux Basics is broken so still no reference to Slackware Linux Basics.
BTW, Alien_Bob's wiki
is over 8 years old
You seem to have a bad habit of just not researching a topic thoroughly! Maybe you should read; http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...#faq_lqwelcome
to help you to form a good post or comment for a thread topic. Re-reading LQ Rules
would be another good point of reference since you fail to post constructive posts with good content.
de Kok's book is the thread topic;
Slackware Linux Basics: For Slackware Linux 12.0 by Daniël de Kok
The book is a good reference but be aware it is based on Slackware 12.0. Sure some of the information can be applied but the differences between 12.0 and Slackware to date(14.2) are there.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
