quite a huge jump from not having any linux expereience to doing kernel projects, but at the most basic level... just use it. Pick a distribution like Mint, and the more you decide to look under the covers to find out how it's working, the more you will learn.

Hi and welcome to LQ!
If you're new on Linux, you should start to use it (and learn it).
A good choice: slackware + tldp

Hello my friend,

I will suggest you to start with CentOS (Red Hat), which is a great linux flavour to deal with!

Do you have any plan? What are you planning to do with your Linux System?


Regards,
Leonidas Papoulakis

If you have done kernel projects in other OSs, you should read books about the Linux kernel, driver writing and the like. Read the FAQ at http://kernel.org or use https://www.kernel.org/doc. If you haven't, first spend a few years learning about Linux in general and read books about operating system design.

LinuxQuestions features a list of learning materials.

Welcome to LQ!

I have used Ubuntu to start with Linux, however most of us agree that to start learning Linux , the better approach would be to use mint/centOS. Also I would suggest to refer to some study material for basic Linux commands and basic architecture (specially if you coming from Windows world)

Baby steps!
I like to refer a new user to use the following as a starting point;
Quote:
Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;



1
Linux Documentation Project
2
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3
Linux Command Guide
4
Bash Beginners Guide
5
Bash Reference Manual
6
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7
Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8
LinuxSelfHelp
9
Ultimate Linux Newbie Guide
10
Linux Home Networking
11
Virtualization- Top 10

The above links and others can be found at '
Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
Of course you would need to select a good Gnu/Linux, I do recommend Slackware if you wish to learn.

As to getting into Linux(kernel) then a good place to start would be http://kernelnewbies.org
Quote:
Kernelnewbies is a community of aspiring Linux kernel developers who work to improve their Kernels and more experienced developers willing to share their knowledge.
Kernelnewbies can be found on the MailingList, IRC (irc.oftc.net #kernelnewbies), the web forum and this wiki.
Kernel.org would be another good site;
Quote:
The Linux Kernel Organization is a California Public Benefit Corporation established in 2002 to distribute the Linux kernel and other Open Source software to the public without charge. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 private operating foundation.
The Linux Kernel Organization is managed by The Linux Foundation, which provides full technical, financial and staffing support for running and maintaining the kernel.org infrastructure.
Here at LQ: Linux Kernel section of SlackwareŽ-Links along with Linux Books & Online Magazines section should provide you with enough information to keep you busy.
