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.

I got the power supply for the Latitude on Saturday. Nice that it was early, but they didn't send me the one I ordered. However, the one they sent does work, so I'm not gonna complain. The bios does not recognize that a battery is installed, so I guess that is next on the list to purchase. I also want to eventually up the ram to 4GB and get a 1TB hard drive for it. Currently it has 1GB of ram and a 60GB hard drive. I went ahead and put Fedora 23 on it, and it seems to be running...
I have made yet another version of SlackEX. It has the latest kernel (4.5.1, released 160412) and the latest KDE (4.14.18) Desktop Environment.
New features in version 160413 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.4.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.5.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. Most important is that I have changed repositories from Slackware 14.1 to Current. I.e. Slackware 14.2. KDE is upgraded to version 4.14.18 (latest KDE version). All other component software is...
Recently a new kernel has come down for a number of RHEL5 systems where I run Oracle on. Also installed is OracleASM (Automated Storage Management), which is a data volume manager for Oracle databases
In the past, when upgrading a kernel, had to also upgrade OracleASM version to match the newer kernel. I would just go to the Oracle website, browser for the OracleASM version that matches the new kernel, download it, install and test.
If you accidentally (or not) click/hold and drag the left mouse button from the inner area ("client" or "any empty area") in a KDE/QT window, it starts to be dragged/moved along, but it's not dropped when you release the button, unlike the behavior with GTK windows (at least GTK2, I guess). You got to press "enter" or "esc", I guess.
Presumably that doesn't happen under KDE proper/kwin, maybe not even with other window managers, but I didn't...

Customer calls in, stating he can't get BGP to come up across an IPSec link from a VyOS instance to another region. He explains that this is his first time messing with BGP, and that the session won't establish. We review his configuration, and for a first-timer, I'm really impressed with his understanding of BGP. Clearly this guy has done his homework, as everything, including odd little quirks of BGP, are all accounted for.
"Well, let's sledgehammer the problem. Ping the...
