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.

OK, the Lenovo ThinkPad X130e ran much better than the ASUS EeePC 1015PEM. But my eyes just weren't getting any younger, so I upgraded to a Lenovo ThinkPad T430. All these machines were purchased through eBay, and the unused two are now for sale there. Nobody wants to buy them BECAUSE of Linux -- if they had Windoze on them, they'd be sold already.
I do love the T430. I'm getting moved into my new home. An old online girlfriend has decided to get serious, but we have a border in the...
Kernel 4.7.1-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. Kernel 4.7.1 was released yesterday (160816).
I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for SlackwareCurrent (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.7.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.7 is the latest kernel available from Kernel.org....

Summer days of July/Aug in Central Illinois are miserable at times with heat index in triple figures. I play in the senior summer league and we tee off at noon. Shows how smart we are in old age. Sure it's nice in early spring or late fall but when the heat index gets high then things can get dangerous. I drink at least 4-6 bottles of water per round and everyone teases me for drinking so much water. Still I can have some problems, at times I sweat so bad that I cannot stand...
I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.4 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.2).
ExTiX 16.4 KDE DVD 64 bit is based on Debian 8.5 Jessie/Debian 9 Stretch and Ubuntu 16.04.1. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed KDE Frameworks 5.18.0 with KDE 4.15. KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality...
