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 written one application using Xlib which is getting the streamed video from a server and displays on the screen whenever Slackware reboots and my app starts.
There I am seeing one strange issue that whenever the systems reboots, it get the video stream and then network gets disconnected and there is no video for 20-30 secs and then again the network gets connected and video starts.
This thing don't happen when i start the app manually but only comes when i make the app runs automatically by putting it in rc.local file.
I see that slackware is taking some time to stabilize the network but i don't see any message of disconn etc in dmsg or logs.
It seems pretty strange that it takes so much to stabilize itself. Even network debouching is not helping.
I have checked the same thing with the SSH client with or without running my application and it also get disconn after reboot and after that it reconnects.
Anyway we can fix this issue or its a known issue with Slackware 12.0?
