Unhappy "Help Me!!"


Hello all,
My question is generally like same for all who are new to linux and want to learn from scratch.

Linux is vast and simple but i am not getting the direction i.e. from where i should start studying the basics of linux so that i can start implementing in my daily life. I already installed fedora 15 using VMWare.

Thanks

If you have it already installed, then start using it and if questions come up then just ask. With linux the options are almost limitless, you can settle with simple web browsing and movie watching or you can pursue the sysadmin and kernel hacker dreams or anything in between. Choice is yours, but to start, just use it.

Source code? Which sourcecode? Linux kernel, X Window System, KDE, GNOME, Midnight Commander? What?

If you want to use Fedora then I recommend you to READ Fedora documentation. Amongst other good things you LEARN how to install software on it. Linux is all about reading and learning and experimenting, and failing and standing up and continuing until you are a true wizard.
