    Getting started in Slack


    So anyway, some of you probably remember a post I did a few weeks ago about installting Slack as a dual boot a few weeks ago. At first, I didn't really like it that much, and actually uninstalled it. But since I'm a really persistant person, I decided to install it again and this time make it work the way I want it to.

    Right now, I'm reading the Slack Book that is available at the Slackware website, but was wondering if you guys would recommend any supplimentary reading? I'm already pretty comfortable in CLI, and when I installed Slack for the second time I just installed software from the first CD (no KDE or GDM) and use XFCE as my GUI. I pretty much just go in it to read the book since I downloaded it in .pdf format. I'm just trying to get a little more feel to Linux, and Slack seems like it will help since everything needs to be done in the config files.

    I'm sure this will prove to be an invaluable resource, it has a whole wealth of information, it's well written and is also available as a book, I know amazon has it. Linux: Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition

    I'm the same way... thinking I don't like something, I uninstall it, but then always end up trying it again (and sometimes yet again). Good on you for not giving up.

    Here's another link for you:

    There's another version of this book that's for sale, but the online version still has lots of good stuff in it.
