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.

Hello I'm new here. I have just installed SuSE linux on my Dell Inspiron laptop still having problems with my wifi network though (I posted that in the laptop section). I was a developer for many years but due to health reasons I am now on disabilty. I have worked on many platforms IBM VM/VMS, IBM Aix, IBM AS/400, HP MPE, DEC VAX, and Windows.
As a hobby right now I am using Lazarus and FPC to develop some apps for myself. I have programmed in many languages including C, C++, java, delphi, Pascal, VB (Yick),and some nobody has never heard of RPG and Bliss(anyone ever heard of that one).
I have one question is Lazarus very good for on Linux?
Distribution: OpenSUSE 13.2 64bit-Gnome on ASUS U52F
Your Wi-Fi probably doesnt work because the driver for your wireless card is a proprietary piece of software but if you hardwired connect to the internet then search for available drivers and install it and then set it up you will be able to connect after rebooting
Installing Lazarus 0.9.30. For openSUSE 11.1 users
Free Pascal Compiler requires:
- Gnu binutils (gnu as, gnu ld, gnu make) These utils can be installed by:
zypper in -t pattern devel_basis
Lazarus also requires these components: 1) glib2 devel 2) gtk2 devel
Important: The lazarus rpm requires the gtk 2 version, not the version 1.2.
These libraries can be installed by:
zypper -n install gtk2 glib2
Download these binary files (RPM)
fpc-2.4.2-0.i686.rpm (yes i686 and not i386)
install them opening a terminal session (mouse's right button -> Menu: Open in terminal)
