I am still a linux n00bissh at times... I like learning most of my knowledge by trial and error but am looking for recommendations on any linux books to improve my knowledge and skills... I have really enjoyed Prentice Hall and ORielly computer books in the past for programming and such.. I am already skilled with computer hardware and Windows skills along with pretty much anything else except for Linux I prefer the FedoraCore distribution as I run it on most of my machines and the Gnome environment... I am basically looking for a good book to learn more about the science behind linux, terminal commands, and/or other useful linux information... If you have any recommendations on where to purchase limnux books it would be greatly appreciated.. As I am not interested in spending a whole lot on a book... So if you have any recommendations of sites where to purchase linux books or a specific linux book u would recommend for the information I stated previouisly, it would be greatly appreciated.. THanks
WHen looking up Running Linux Fourth edition I see it covers capabilities and behaviors for Linux through kernel 2.4.... Fedora uses 2.6.9 and I know the 2.6 kernel has substantial upgrades... When looking at Linux in a nutshell it looks to be more of quicker read and is able to keep me more attentive so I actually read the entire book Anyone else got any comments? Or anyother websites to purchase orilley books?
yummy I think I will order it today... Cheapest place I found was $27 USD at Amazon NEW (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...607250-9298425)..... Anyone know any other sites that may sell it cheaper (other than ebay)? Im just on a budget andtrying to save up for money to buy an AMD Socket 939 64bit system for Linux...
I own "Linux in a Nutshell" and "Running Linux". "Linux in a Nutshell" is more of a reference book of commands for people who have experience with Linux while "Running Linux" is a bit outdated.
Of those two "Linux in a Nutshell" is the better investment.
Having said that, I absolutely agree with the poster who recommends Paul Sheer's "Rute User". I spent a small fortune on Linux books before discovering this gem. Its available online or you can order a hardcopy from Amazon.
