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.

Cinlerra & Firefox installed without a hitch since as of right now they are just downloadable binaries. Audacity, and Avidemux would not install without first upgrading some libraries. I believe this might have been due to an...
Basically the debian install partition manager doesn't work. How in the world can you release an install image when the partition manager refuses to format the partitions you create?! I had to create the partitions, reboot into a gparted live bootable usb, format them, reboot into debian 8.1 to specify how to mount the damn partitions!
The other annoying thing, but this one is miniscule. Even though I downloaded a non free firmware iso, I still had to download the correct...
