Linux Exploration (the learning never ends)

Posted 04-20-2006 at 07:47 PM by sixerjman

I started working with Linux about 3 years ago when I installed Debian Potato on an eMachine 433Mh box with a 4 gig hard drive. It has been a fantastic learning experience for everything from Bash scripting to compiling the kernel and best of all, installing and configuring software packages.

Sometimes things don't work the way they are documented so I have to figure out what's happening, and I often download the source to try and better understand the
