Introduction


Hello everyone! I've just joined this forum. Apparently I've recently decided to learn Linux. So can you guys suggest me some really good source online from where I can learn using Linux?

Hello and welcome to LQ.

Not sure where to point you. There are so many resources available that it's almost impossible for me to suggest one or two.

More depends on where you are starting at and how you like to learn. Newbie starting out may need to have videos to get started. One that knows other OS's may only need to cover some man pages and distro documentation.

Hi:

Welcome to Linux Questions!

One way to learn Linux is to install it on your pc and use it everyday and learn as you go.

Learn the commandline:

http://linuxreviews.org/beginner/

Learn the Linux file system:

Ubuntu
Then boot to single user mode and learn to setup secure software repositories.

Yes, this is one way, and in my experience the BEST way if you really want to learn!

Look at these links for useful information;

You can look at GNU/Linux-Newbie section of 'Slackware-Links' for some useful links to helpful information.


You could use a LiveCD from 'The LiveCD List' to boot a machine to test drive a GNU/Linux. Then decide or choose the Gnu/Linux that fits your needs.

In addition to the
Linux in a Nutshell which is a great desk reference, download Linux Kernel in a Nutshell which is a good read and reference. You can find other 'FREE' usable reference at Open Source E-Books for Linux and down-loadable.

Look at
Linux Books & Online Magazines for other useful links to free books and references.


Just a few more links to aid you to gaining some understanding. Sure some may seem beyond a newbie but you must start somewhere;


Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
