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.

If you are following the instructions then there is no 'make' involved.
Make sure that you have downloaded the exact sources from the links on the SlackBuilds pages.
SlackBuilds are thoroughly tested and approved. If you follow the instructions correctly they will work on a proper Slackware install.
md5.c: In function 'MD5Final':
md5.c:239:5: warning: dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules [-Wstrict-aliasing]

Slackware package maker, version 3.14159.
Searching for symbolic links:
No symbolic links were found, so we won't make an installation script.
You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the
package if you like.
This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!
Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n
Creating Slackware package: /tmp/b43-fwcutter-015-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz
Slackware package /tmp/b43-fwcutter-015-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz created.
The installation of the above two packages finally worked!
slackbuilds.org is really helpful, although there are times when you should manually edit the script so that it can use the proper source file (that you have downloaded in the meantime).
Such an example is the installation of Adobe Flash.
Thank you guys for your help!!!
