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 have installed firefox-18.104.22.168 from linuxpackages.net.
I am running fluxbox as my window manager.
I have a strange problem with firefox. Suddenly, it stops responding and the window area is not redrawn, it doesn't respond to mouse or keyboard. When I kill it with kill -9, and restart firefox, I get the message box asking whether I want to restore the old session or start a new one. Regardless of what I select, firefox then disappears. I can see in the process list but running on pts/18 or so. I think this is strange.
i would remove that linuxpackages.net package and just use the mozilla.org provided firefox. i never had much luck with linuxpackages.net and try to avoid them whenever possible. compile yourself, or use a binary (like the mozilla.org firefox) -- you're much better off, imho.
slackhack -> This also occurs with the firefox version included with slackware 12. As it occurred with the firefox versions included with multiple releases of Zenwalk and the version that was included with slackware 11.
As far as I can tell, either firefox (and other mozilla variants)doesn't want to play nice with slackware (and its variants), or it is broken.
