How/Where to learn from


I have been running various flavours of Linux for around 2 years now and think it's time to learn how to do all th cool stuff I've been seeing other people doing.

Where is the best place to start to learn CLI and all the behind the scenes stuff us converted M$ users aren't familiar with??

Rute is one of the best places to start. And of course there is the Advanced Bash Scripting Guide at TLDP (which has a ton of other stuff as well). And even though it is aimed at Slackware users, the Slackbook has a lot of good stuff applicable to all distros.

Linux in a Nutshell from O'Reilly

Thanks for that, I'll be SLOWLY ploughing through this stuff.

A couple more things, what are my best options for anything in print? It needs to be at 'Idiots guide' level .

Also, are there any good distro specific online pages for say PCLOS, Sam, Fedora?? I always struggle to find help on odd silly things I suspect may well be better covered in user run sites??

Thanks again.

You can get most (all?) of the O'Reilly books at any reputable bookstore or online. You can also order copies of the Slackbook from Slackware.com.

Hi,

Look at the 'Linux Book section' of the 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
