    Online Book: Slackware Linux Essentials


    I know that most of you loyal Slackware users are already familiar with this book, but perhaps those that are new to the distribution will find it to be a handy guide and reference, too:

    For anyone keeping an eye on this online manual, they've just done some more updating:

    SlackBook Update 2005-08-20

    I've finally gotten around to posting that translations page I have been promising for a month now! So far volunteers have contacted me to translate the book into 9 seperate languages. I'd like to thank everyone for their hard work in this effort.

    Yes, I totally agree. It's full of good info that all Slackware users will find helpful.

    Maybe it could go in the new Linux Resources Forum.

    As someone said it should be put as a sticky with others links quite useful: the main website for ex and some slack connected projects like slamd64.com or even slax and zenwalk.

    If you make references to linuxpackages.net, it's useful to put a link to slacky.it. Though it's an italian site, everyone can use their search function for packages (which is in English). The site always contains up-to-date packages, and has IMHO more to offer when it comes to packages than linuxpackages.net - it provides buildscripts, sources, slack-descs, and additional files that might be needed to build your own package.
