Question Source for Linux commands?


can anyone point a newbie to a good source for learning commands? I need to learn to work with .tar files, compile them, install them etc... as well as do everything else. A general "Newbie, you need to know this..." type of info. Thanks...

I like Linux in a Nutshell by O'Reilly as a general reference book. If you want something that teaches a bit more, try Running Linux. You should also print out The One Page Linux Manual and keep it handy.

Thanks for the links guys. I like the sound of that " The One Page Linux Manual", but the link is broken. Maybe you could post it here...

linux comes with all the info you need type
man tar for info about working with them. If you are unsure about any command just type
man commandname
and you will get pretty comprehesive info on it.

Check out www.oreillynet.com/linux/cmd/ as it's the online version of O'Reilly's Linux in a Nutshell book--another one to order from Amazon along with O'Reilly's Running Linux. Both are fantastic sources of information and will come in VERY handy. Hope this helps.

Hmm... It seems to work for me, so maybe your ISP is having a problem with that particular site. You can download it directly from another server at http://www.df.uba.ar/~lafec/fiscomp/linuxmanual.pdf
