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.

The binary installer works fine for Slackware, and puts it into /home so there are no changes to the system. Technically speaking, a package of this particular application is not required unless you intend on installing this on a multi-user system.
In that case, you could either use makepkg to create an installable package from the binary release, or actually write a Slackbuild for the source release. I was unable to find an existing SlackBuild for this application, though maybe somebody on the boards has one they would like to share.
Assuming someone wants to use it in Slackware64 13 pure, it must be built... I have already downloaded the source as well as some external dependencies like Erlang ( there's a slackbuild for it ) and Esdl ( erlang Bindings for Sdl ) wich must be built from source, I will create a package from Esdl and install it w/ src2pkg, and after having the dependencies installed, i will try to build Wings3d
