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.

Recently installed slackware 13.0. Added the gnome from gnomeslackbuild.org.
Everything works fine except gnumeric. It comes up fine and behaves with
a new sheet but a lot of things don't work if I load one of my active
Noticed the version that came from slackbuild was older (1.8 something) than
the one I have been using (1.9.1). Removed 1.8 and installed 1.9.1. It was
missing a library which I added.
Tried reinsalling slackware 13.0 and did a net install of the gnome suite
(first time I installed gnome I did it step by step). Had the same results.
Running gnumeric from xterm shows me some of the errors:
(gnumeric:3496): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type
`GnmGODataScalar' is smaller than the parent type's `GODataScalar' class size
(gnumeric:3518): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type
`GnmGODataMatrix' is smaller than the parent type's `GODataMatrix' class size
still get too many errors - think I will switch to openoffice.
have been trying multiple things. upgraded goffice, got gnumeric to work - seems to be erratic -works on some boots not others. on last try (from slackbuild.org) a compile for gnumeric complained about a missing library. will recomlile goffice from slackbuild as I don't think I looked for errors when it finished.
