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.

After my upgrade to 12 I'm seeing one issue that does
bug me. Xv's slide-show feature doesn't seem to work
anymore (I use it embedded in xscreensaver for a slide-
show of pix). I used to slide images every 8 seconds.
Now (and also stand-alone, from command-line), the only
value that seems to make the pictures proceed in the
slide-show, is 1 ... one second. Not good, too fast,
no fun to look at.
Has anyone else encountered that issue, is it limited
to my install? And should you have encountered it - how
did you fix the problem? :}
Here are some [possibly useless] observations on your problem.
I built my XV 3.10a on a previous version of Slack (10.1 I think) when checkinstall was working reliably.
The reason I did that was because I needed to apply the PNG+CRW patch to look at my raw camera files.
Because I was lazy, I just replaced the /usr/bin/xv executable in Slack 12 with the one from my previous system, and it works fine (XV is still my favourite image viewer).
nothing happens, but if I remove the "-rmode 5" option, it works (it waits for 8 anyway)
so, I would first try building your own package from source.
If you want to play with the xv executable that I built, I would be more than happy to send it to you...
I don't think the patch I applied is relevant, I was just explaining what I did.
