I agree, but that's for beginners, it dosent go into so much painstaking detail as the RUTE goes ...

Oh....Well I am not too sure about 'rute' , perhaps you will have better luck under google.com/linux and search for that specific term there...

I don't remember ever seeing version 1.0 as a pdf.

If you don't mind an older version, just google for rute.pdf... there are still copies of the file floating around out there. (Is there a reason you need pdf? I guess you could download the latest version as html and convert it.)

Cool Rute

Ironically, I was looking for this very same thing two days ago. I, too, was looking for a PDF document so that I don't have to sign online to read it (I take my laptop with me lots and internet isn't an option, and boredom is frequent). What worked for me:
Code:
rute pdf
as search parameters in regular Google. The third item down (for me anyway) was marked as a PDF document. I have the Acrobat reader plugin installed on my browser, so I don't know if right-clicking and "Save Link As..." is an option but I would not be surprised if it is. Otherwise, you can "Save a Copy" from the Acrobat reader plugin... like I had to do for some reason.

I hope it works for you.

By the way... while I'm on the subject... I have the pdfs of the linux cookbook, rute, and the slackbook. I like the "Cookbook" the least, but that's my personal preference. For me, RUTE and slackbook are pretty much the only things I need to get by with intermediate to advanced tasks. For the sake of argument, I read slackbook first, then I browsed through RUTE. It gave me a fantastic working knowledge of slackware and general linux.

Good luck with the pursuit of knowledge!

Just wondering if there is any updated version of this great book?
Some topics are quite outdated, and there is some nice 2.6 kernel functionality that ofcourse isn't touched.

Or maybe somebody knows a recent alternative?

Cheers

Well, after google next useful thing to search for old/rare files is ed2k (aMule/xMule) p2p network. Just be careful about copyrights and tons of fake files.
