LXer: 12 More of the Best Free Linux Books

Some of this documentation is intended specifically for a newcomer to Linux, or those that are seeking to move away from a proprietary world and embrace freedom.

I'm trying to download the First book, from the Direct Link, and nothing is happening. Anyone else find this?

This is a great resource, people

It appears that it is trying to open the PDF in the browser. No time to wait for it ATM---maybe I can try from work with really fast connection.

Gahhh :/ "Save link as.." does not work either for me.

EDIT -- might be my browser is out to lunch, as I have upgraded it and haven't yet restarted it.. Testing shortly.

Sasha, the "non-bittorrent" link points to a 20Mb PFD file and, if you have set your browser to automatically display PFD files, you may have to wait for the download to finish before you "see" anything. I just used wget to gab the file from that link with no problem.

Thanks PTrenholm -- my problem was that my browser wanted to be restarted and updated it seems.
It now works as expected. Sorry for all the excitement!!
