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 using slackpkg to leech from current. For some reason, it never upgraded cairo, so everything that had a cairo dependency would not work. I went through the current changelog and found the package. Installed it, and now I'm good to go. Just be careful, you need to have the following package installed:
in order for the libs to be compatible, for some reason. Somehow, that never got updated from 10.2.
That's why the automatic tools can get 'ya. Don't get me wrong, I use slackpkg on one machine and gslapt on the other two, but sometimes Pat adds a package that's needed, and since there's no dependency checking, stuff chokes. I had a similar problem with kmail recently. It's always good to take a quick look at the Changelog.
