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.

I've upgraded curl, php and samba to their latest versions. Just download the sources and compile using the SlackBuild-scripts from /source. Should we notify PatV?
Glad to hear my patches worked out for you.
I emailed Pat about a week and a half before starting this thread but I haven't sent a 2nd email with more recent news (e.g. openssl, libxfont). A new email might be worthwhile in case he's not visiting LQ. Feel free to send one.
Bye, corvid! Remember to write if you find work and hang by your thumbs. [Bob & Ray Radio Program sign-off] I'll move on when Pat does. He's done fine with me for twenty years. I've tried the rest, but still use the best.
Thank you, mancha for staying on top of the SSL security patches. (Openssl-1.0.1e is the version on the mirrors.)
If you look at the patches, few of them are actually security vulnerabilities, and none of them are critical. I'm sure Pat V. would have pushed updates if any of them were critical security vulnerabilities.
In other words, don't let this thread chase you away from Slackware.
