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.

Thank you for reminding us to use the current version of fedup. (The only way I can figure out the version number is to look in /usr/share/doc: /usr/share/doc/fedup-0.8.0.) BTW, also noticed /usr/share/doc/fedup-dracut-0.7.3, so I'm in for a lot of cleanup work.
Don't know where to bring this up, but why are 64-bit libraries and programs ending up in /usr/lib? Traditionally /lib and /usr/lib is where 32-bit libraries go; /lib64 and /usr/lib64 is for 64-bit versions.
There is a somewhat obtuse comment in /lib/systemd/system/gpm.service:
# This could probably benefit from socket activation, but honestly I think it
# is time for gpm to go away, and hence I am not planning to spend the time
# to add socket activation here.
Please don't take gpm away! There exists quite a large number of systems administrators who use bash in a tty console. Sometimes there is no way to perform the necessary chores with a GUI, particularly if you have to take the system down to telinit 1 using kvm switches or a 1U console in the machine room. Suffering from congenital indolence, as I oftentimes do, I'd rather highlight stuff from history, help or man and click it into the command line (taking care not to include a linefeed in the selection). Without gpm, I'd wear out my fingerbones typing all those commands on each of a couple of hundred servers. Cascading KVM switches allows control of hundreds of servers from a single keyboard, monitor and mouse console (my desk, or a 1U console in the machine room). But I digress.
Kudos to the FC20 roll-out team! Flawless upgrades make me happy.
