slackware tutorials or books


Hello

Do you know where i can find more slackware tutorials or books (exept the slackbook.org and the slackwiki).Because i want to learn more about my system.Is there any book or tutorial with more details about slackware?

P.S. the type of the details which i want is about network and security...Let's say something like iptabbles,handling with services like ssh...Of course the above examples are very simple....

What type of details are you looking for? Slackbook covers most of it. If you could post the details about exactly what you are looking for maybe someone can help you out.

One of the great features of Slackware is that it is very standard with few proprietary features so a lot of "learning about Slackware" is actually "learning about Linux" (here using Linux in its extended meaning of "a Linux based system" rather than its strict meaning of "the Linux kernel").

Well the init system is very different. So you'll have to learn that as it makes starting & stopping things, kinda important. For basic commands, yes almost any normal lfs bash command will work. Stuff compiles easily, etc etc. Plus the actual files, scripts, etc are very well documented. Vim is your friend.

Hi,

'Slackware Reference' section of 'Slackware-Links' would be a start. Plus look at the other Slackware sections for useful information.

Use this OS Guide link found found on slackwiki index:
http://openskill.info/topic.php?ID=143
You can use this outline of Slackware OS structure to customize any generalized linux info you read. There are extensive lists of books and online reference materials that include videos too. onebuck's links are exhaustive on slackware structure and functions. Hope you have alot of printer ink
