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.

"Superb Mini Server version 1.6.4 released (Linux kernel 220.127.116.11). This minor release brings security updates to 2.6.39 kernels for CVE-2012-0056 local root exploit, where a local user could gain root privileges by modifying process memory, and for various packages such as OpenSSL, Samba, Apache server, PHP. This is the last release with GCC 4.5.3 as we will follow Slackware 'Current' with GCC 4.6.2 and 3.2.x kernels. The 3.2.5 kernels built with GCC 4.5.3 are available from the SMS kernel repository if anyone wants an early upgrade. Also Eric Hameleer's OpenJDK packages adopted, replacing JDK and JRE packages. The SMS live CD now issues default passwords at login prompt to help the lazy ones, and comes with kernel 3.2.5, just for the fun of it."
