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.

Does anyone know where I can find sources for the Swisswatch program. I'm having no luck searching the interwebs. Apparently the google-fu is not strong in me today.
(Swisswatch is an old desktop analog clock for X. It's old, small, and unobtrusive, but not quite so plain as Xclock. I had it on the Debian box that is now a Slackware box, and would like it back. It was in Debian's repos, but then so is everything else.)

[I'm puzzled. I'm certain that earlier tonight there was a post here that pointed me towards a Debian source. I even downloaded the file and tried to install it, then ran into dependency issues, so I tabled it for later. Now that post and my reply seem to be gone.
I just tried swisswatch. Funnily enough I just wrote a desktop analog clock in C, but be aware I am not a programmer, however my clock does seem to use less resources than swissclock. It hasn't the classic look of the SSB clock but you can configure size, colours and geometry in the rc file to get it looking similar, though without the large ball on the second hand.
If you are interested you can find it on my github page. https://github.com/01micko/pmck. Sorry, no manpage or slackbuild as yet as I mainly wrote it as an exercise in cairo/xlib programming.
