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.

-Current working good here except for thunar opened with “kdesu thunar” from mortal user account doesn’t have trash or network in KDE or XFCE.
If I log in to KDE or XFCE root session then everything works.
I Googled it and found several bug reports on thunar so I don't think it's a Slack problem.
However I'm very happy to now be able to access my samba servers via thunar from user accounts.
Things just keep getting better and better.
Thanks Slack crew!
I get segmentation fault when I try to run slapt-get and clementine. Messages in dmesg:

There's a small bug in Slackware64's version of yptools. Utilities like 'ypinit' seem to look for their counterparts in '/usr/lib' and not in '/usr/lib64', which produces a series of 'command not found' errors.
It's easy to fix this bug with a quick & dirty workaround like this:
Was this intentional, I always though that aaa_... packages should be upgrade, installed first first and the reason they are start with aaa_.
If you're already up-to-date with current and just applying the latest batch of updates that Pat has provided then there's usually nothing to worry about. If you're applying several batches at once because you've fallen behind, then order might be an issue. aaa_elflibs is the main one to watch out for as if you do it in the wrong order you,might actually downgrade some libraries. aaa_base is just a bunch of empty directories so there's not much scope for damage.
