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.

Hi; I'm trying to install OpenOffice Beta 2 under Slackware 10.2 by converting the RPMs into .tgz packages. My plan is to combine all of the .tgz packages together into one giant OO.o master-package, from which I will install. Now, Slackware 10.2 doesn't come with GNOME, nor do I really care to install it. So my question is this: will installing the gnome-integration package mess everything up if GNOME itself isn't installed?
In other words, should I (and is it safe to) remove the gnome-integration package from the OpenOffice Beta 2 installation? Thanks.
You can therefore safely ignore it (although I install all packages with a KDE desktop). AFAIK, you only need all the core packages, plus the others on top for the applications you require. The menu packages are completely useless for Slackware without extra work to start with to fix directory locations and symlinks.
The core??u packages contain symlinks - makepkg has to convert these to an install script, otherwise Slackware doesn't handle removing them properly when removing the package.
