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 upgrade from slack 12.1 to slack 12.2 went fairly well. There were only a few issues, mostly with third party packages.

Since everyone sorta introduces themselves in their first blog post, here it goes:
To put food on the table for my family, I manage 170+ high-availability databases and 110+ data-warehousing/reporting databases. Lots of PostgreSQL, lots of (sigh) SQL Server. I'm an OpenBSD fanatic. I love Python, and for kicks I like to learn. I'm currently studying the Intel Software Developer's Manuals and I haven't worked on my sourceforge project (geoxplanet) in quite some time. I'd put geoxplanet...
Presence of the:
files in the Mozilla Firefox’s plugins and chrome folders.
If anyone is thinking of buying the £350 Acer Aspire 5720 from Tesco Direct with a view to running fully virtualized guests (as I did), don't bother. The VT functionality has been disabled in the BIOS, even though the T7500 processor is completely capable of it. There is no option in the BIOS screen to enable it, and no BIOS updates on the web site.
I put this in an email to Acer technical support and was told "the issue you have described is one of a software related nature"...
