Linux books


Could anyone recommend some books about Linux? Books or magazines of how the OS works, tips and tricks, different stuff you can do with it, anything like that. I'm just looking for something educational.

Hi,

TLDP is a good source. Did you take a look at O-Reilly bookstore?

Yep, anyone could recommend books about Linux. I'd like to think that some recommendations were more valuable than others, though.

You aren't focussing down much there; everything from how Linux works, to stuff you can do (itself a very wide field). OK, you are asking for a 'scattergun approach' and I've got one.

I don't know what's availble where you are, but magazines are also a good source of 'how to do this cool thing' articles. And you usually get a 'free' DVD, too.

O'Reilly was mentioned; have a look at their 'Hacks' series and maybe the 'Cookbook' series. Also Essential System Admin (not strictly a Linux book) by Frisch and the Linux Quick Fix Notebook (Harrison).

There is a lot of stuff online; search for anything you are interested in and 'tutorial' and you'll find stuff.
