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.

Before that I did a backup of my /etc-diretory. I have done some tweaks like fstrim, prelinking libraries and creating several service files for systemd (cannot remember exactly for what exactly, should have been for network bridging for KVM, stuff for VMware Workstation, profile-sync-daemon) in order to speed up my system. Which parts of that directory are save to restore? I'm not looking into having to do all that work all over again.
Well, for different reasons it became a total mess. Sabayon's package manager has the nice feature to restore the previously installed packages, one can export and import a database of all the packages installed. Contrary to Debian's APT this actually works (had some disappointing experiences).
Unfortunately this time it didnt't work. The re-installation process entered into a endless loop and after all packages had been re-installed a third time, my 50GB ROOT-partition ran full. So I decided to re-install the entire system (Yeah!). The newest version of Anaconda gave me some trouble, being sluggish and crashing repeatedly.
