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.

I'm following some kind of tutorial of an installation. But the commands used in the tutorial are for a linux OS, but the system i need to do the installation is on a HP-UX so the commands used in this tutorial aren't usefull...
So can anyone give me a GOOD website where I can find most of the commands used on a HP-UX or if you want, you can give me the commands i need to use, like
- make (make install)
- tar xzf filename
- yum install
- make install-...
I can't help you since I don't have any experience with HP-UX.
Don't confuse general Linux commands/programs like tar or make with distribution- (or in general OS-) specific commands. The commands tar or make work much in the same way on every Unix/Linux-system, for differences look at the manpages which are available for every Unix/Linux-system.
yum is a packagemanager of a Linuxdistribution (I don't know which) and has nothing to do with Unix/Linux in general.
Commands like "make all" or "make install" have nothing to do with the distribution or operatingsystem at all since the all or install option is configured in the makefile and depends on the software you want to install.
You may search with google for "posix conform operatingsystems".
Distribution: Cinnamon Mint 17.3 and 18 at present.
HP-UX is an HP propritory version of Unix which runs on high end HP systems; 9000 series, Superdomes, etc... So what kind of hardware are you using?
I may be wrong but aren't make, make-install, etc, actually compiler commands, i.e. not Unix? Yum is the Yellow Dog Update Manager and won't have any comparrable command under HP-UX (I don't think) there'll be a propriotory package manager. HP-UX is a licenced product so can you not get support from HP under your licence?
...or are you trying to install Linux on an HP 9000 system or similar? Different question!
I'm trying to install NRPE on a HP-UX, but i'm not familiar with the commands of a HP-UX (and i'm following an installation for a Linux OS so it's confusing..)
But i think i found a guide for installing NRPE on HP-UX, so i'm following that one untill i get stuck
perhaps you guys now a good site that guides people to install NRPE on HP-UX?
