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.

You need the GPG key of Slackware Linux Project <email@example.com>.
To download and install that key, run:
# slackpkg update gpg
You can disable GPG checking too, but it is not a good idea.
To disable GPG, edit slackpkg.conf and change the value of the CHECKGPG
variable to off - you can see an example in the original slackpkg.conf.new
file distributed with slackpkg.
I close the terminal, i try to run the ksnapshot for other thread and get and library error that I solved,but that's results from my failure to upgrade to current.. hehehehe
When I think about it, it seems that you haven't upgraded at all, so reverting to 13.37 should be possible (in general, a downgrade from -current to 13.37 was possible at least some weeks ago, I have done that and it worked). But since I don't know what exactly happened on your machine I can't say if the system will be in a consistent state afterwards. Restoring your backup would be the better choice just for having a known good system.
It is best to follow the instructions in UPGRADE.TXT at least up to the pkgtools/tar/xz/findutils step. glibc is best upgraded in runlevel 1 just in case. In any event my guess is that the errors may be solved by upgrading slackpkg *first*. I could be wrong, of course, but with major upgrades (stable version to stable version, or stable version to -current) I take the path of least resistance and upgrade the core system tools manually...then let slackpkg sort out the less important stuff.
