Slackware Linux Basics For Slackware Linux 12.0

By Daniël de Kok

Released: 2018-06-17
Kindle Edition (291 pages)

Slackware Linux Basics For Slackware Linux 12.0
 
Product Description:
This book aims to provide an introduction to Slackware Linux. It addresses people who have little or no GNU/Linux experience, and covers the Slackware Linux installation, basic GNU/Linux commands and the configuration of Slackware Linux. After reading this book, you should be prepared to use Slackware Linux for your daily work, and more than that.

Thanks to the rapid development of open source software, there are now comprehensive desktop environments and applications for GNU/Linux. Most current distributions and books focus on using GNU/Linux with such environments. I chose to ignore most of the graphical applications for this book, and tried to focus this book on helping you, as a reader, to learn using GNU/Linux in a more traditional UNIX-like way. I am convinced that this approach is often more powerful, and helps you to learn GNU/Linux well, and not just one distribution or desktop environment. The UNIX philosophy is described in Section 2.4.

Slackware Linux Basics
 
Product Description:
Slackware is the oldest Linux distribution still in active development. Dating back to 1993, it is still being maintained by its creator Patrick Volkerding with help from developers from all around the world.

It is a very sturdy yet simple distribution, whose main goals are simplicity and stability. Slackware also strives to be the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution.

If you want a distribution that will force you to understand Linux and its Unix heritage, Slackware is for you. If, instead, you want the complexities of Linux hidden from you, look for a different distribution.

Don't however let this intimidate you, Slackware is no more difficult to learn or become proficient in than any other distribution. The main difference will be in the way you perform tasks, Slackware is far more dependant on the command line interface (cli) than it is on graphical tools. If you compare it to driving a car, you can think of Slackware as a manual/stick and distributions like Mandrake and Redhat as automatics.
