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.

Just found out that we can install packages under Red Hat as a group, instead of individual ones, which will be a big time saver, along with trying to remember the name of the individual packages. I've seen a number of tutorials online for this and I think they either fall short or are not clear. So here is my attempt at it and this blog entry assumes the end user has some basic Linux skills and basic knowledge of Red Hat.
Step-by-step instructions on setting up the following:...
NEWS 160131 AndEX Marshmallow 6.0.1 with kernel 4.4.0-exton and GAPPS
My build of Android-x86 Marshmallow 6.0.1 has GAPPS pre-installed. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Gmail, YouTube and more apps. For example: Aptoide, Google Chrome and Spotify. The ISO is called android-x86-6.0.1-marshmallow-kernel-4.4.0-exton-GAPPS-520mb-160131.iso. AndEX Marshmallow Build 160131 is totally error-free (as far as I know).
The trick is using dmix on loopback device:
2 dmixers; one for regualr onboard audio; the other for loopback virtual device, then duplicates streams send to onboard audio card, so you can hear what is being sent to loopback device.
Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Exton Build 160125, version 8, is a ready!
I’ve added Mesa (3D Graphics Library) 10.5.9 for better Graphics performance. The system can run live (from CD or a USB stick) on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions. I.e. you must (as usual) burn...
Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization. It uses carefully engineered data structures and algorithms to achieve very low per-node overheads and high concurrency. The implementation is...
