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.

Hey and thanks for your reply, glad to here you got it working
Well I was thinking to make Slackpack list all the available packets of the repositories in the repository list but this would cause a big pause if you have alot of repo's in the list, anyways I havent really decided if to do it or not, maybe I should give an option, lets say a "List Packages" button?
1. Slack is not a prefix you should be using, it should be reserved for official Slackware software.
2. Even if you were right to use the Slack prefix, I think Slackpack is distastefully close to Slackpkg, the official pkgtools wrapper included in Slackware.
yeap i did, he has no problem using the prefix "slack" in my application, because its not a linux distro, only an app for slackware linux... Pat also forwared my email to Piter Punk (the guy that codded slackpkg) to get his opinion about the name too.
