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 came to college with nothing more than 27 hours of AP credits and a dream to work at RedHat as an intern. Ever since I started, I've been downloading a Linux distro just about every week. I decided that getting QEMU would be...
flimp is a generic graphical frontend to the many excellent command line image manipulation tools available. It allows you to create pipelines of commands that read from standard input and write to standard output.

applies to: linux, udev, permissions, device node, virtualbox
To allow raw host disk access by guest machine on VirtualBox the user must have read-write permission to all partitions which are to be accessed. You can do this by something like
sudo chmod a+rw /dev/sda7
but executing it every time you need to boot virtual machine is annoying. You may want to set the permissions at boot time.
