Where are Suse books ?


Hi
In the Suse Linux 8.0 tour it says browse the linux user manual and configuration manual on screen and print out in postscript format . But i cannot find these books - only .pdf docs .
I did install the pdf files but still could not display them as the install er did not display their location. what is happening ??

Well, if you know the name of the rpm they
are in you can do a
Code:
rpm -ql <rpm's name> | less
to display the locations of
the files that came in that rpm.


Cheers,
Tink

rpm = RedHat Package Manager...

Little red ridinghoods makers were the ones
to come up with this installation method that
later on became widely used and modified :}

Cheers,
Tink
