Question Good books to learn LINUX for a programmer


hi all
I have installed ubuntu a few days back.
I have studied a bit of unix and linux in my college and have done a little shell scripting (2 yrs back).
I want to learn Linux to better understand programming basics and OS.
I want to study Linux from a programmers perspective.
I want to study all the commands,File system, kernal and its low level working ,its source code. I don't know where to begin with.
Most the books that i referred doesn't provide all these info.
Can anyone please suggest any books or reference.
Thanks

Hello Trikster and wellcome to LQ,

1) find a good book or tutorial about the C programminglanguage (the kernel is written in C)
2) install a distribution which will teach you Linux by using it. How about Slackware?
3) Learn the classic Unix-tools, vi (vim), sed, grep, bash, find and others (look at the manpages).
4) learn another (modern) scriptinglanguage like Python or Ruby or Perl.
