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 have only just realized that I had never installed ivtv-utils on
my Slackware 13.37 (32-bit) system, so I went to the SlackBuilds site
to get the package; but, where the heck is it?
I first checked for version 13.37, and tried "ivtv-utils" and then "ivtvutils", and just about every other combo I could think of, and got nothing!
Then I tried looking for a version for Slackware 14, and got the same result!
What's going on? I still need ivtv-tune for tuning my old Hauppauge 150 PVR card! I can't believe that not only isn't ivtv-utils still maintained, but that it has been wiped off of the packages list altogether?
I know it WAS there, because I had it on my OTHER Slackware 13.37 machine, whose HD has since "died"...; now how do I get it?
It has been such a long time since I was actively installing packages on my Slackware system, maybe I just thought I acquired
ivtv-utils at SlackBuilds!? Maybe someone turned me on to a location that I could get it from. I only know that I DID have it running on my other Slackware 13.37-based system before it went "South" on me ...
I will try and get the normal source package and build it from that. I just wonder what version would be best for Slackware 13.37? Ah, a little internet research, I guess :-}
