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.

Hi all, I am a new user.
First of all, excuse my English: I am Italian.
I have a question I have searched for a long and I hope you can help me about... I also searched in these forums: I found something similiar but it was not useful to me...
I work in an authority where a huge windows net is on.
Being very fond of opensource world, I retrieved an old computer and installed Slackware 10.2 on it with the purpose of making a web server.
So we have an intranet site finely working on it running with php-mysql: also authentication for restricted areas is done by means of mysql...
But now there is the need to authenticate on it using the single-sign-on on Active Directory being effective in our net...
I thought it was a simple thing, but...
Slackware installation of php is evidently missing ldap extensions: I tried to install OpenLdap, but I didn't manage to make it work with php.
Should I install something like a php-ldap extension? Or what?
You could either download and install the slackware-current package sets, or just download the sources and build scripts that you need from -current. Do not download and install the binary slackware-current packages for use on your slackware 10.2 computer!.
I'd get at least the sources for the openldap-client, pine and php packages, and then compile Slackware packages from those on your Slackware 10.2 computer. Maybe you'll need more, I can't predict that. First build and install openldap-client, then build, not install pine and finally build and install pphp.
If you decide to download and use the slackware-current SlackBuild scripts for those packages, you will have to edit the scripts, look for the string "-mtune" and change that into "-mcpu" or else you will just get compiler errors on Slackware 10.2.
