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'd like to use tor on slackware 12.1.
It seems, as if it is not inlcuded in the whole distribution and there seem to be no .pkg -files for tor.
Is that right?
So, what will i have to do now?
I think, i must use make and make install on the sources, is that right?
But i have another problem regarding the make!
On my parents' system i chose, not to install such things, which i would install, if it was my computer.
I unchecked the "d" package, for example,before installation.
And now it seems, as if not only libraries, compilers, binders and headers but also some necessary commands are missing, which indirectly are connected to, lets say, the d packege.And one of them is make.
At least i suppose.
I think, i haven't this, because i unchecked "d".
Is that right?
So, if you want to compile from source you'll need to reinstall those. I'll leave it as an excercise to the reader to chose which ones you want to install, and since you've made it this far, I'll assume you know how to install packages without rerunning the installer.
With Slackware, it's a very good idea to install the development utilities. You will almost certainly have to compile something at some point. However, if you don't want to do that, there's a pre-built tor package from slacky.eu if you want to try it. I would trust slacky.eu about 50% -- but I'm paranoid, and the package is probably fine. It is available here.
