I am a novice linux user (I am 15). I have run mandrake, fedora core and suse in the past because i liked thier configuration tools but now I am using slackware. I know how to install programs using RPM but how do you install .tgz or .tar.gz files ? Do you have to extract or compile them or something because i have little programming experience at all.
I would like to know how i can insatll these programs as i want to run some games under slackware.
My system is PIII Ighz, 10/100 ethernet LAN card, pretty generic soundcard, 2mb shared trident graphics adaptor, 128m RAM, DVD drive and 25gb HDD.
Any help would be appreviated
