Newbie Here :)


Hey Guys, im as new as they come. Im 16 and am very intrested in learning how to program. I have Fedora Core 4 installed on my other computer, but it's hella confusing

I just wanted to ask if you guys know of any good books or websites that i could go to, to learn some good sh**.

I also am having trouble installing stuff. I wanted to install Teamspeak (ofcourse the Linux version) but couldnt do it.


Peace, KiLlJ0y

Yeah, their is a ton of stuff out there. Start with the Fedora docs, then have a google for "rute" which is a free online book that will tell you more about Linux than you ever wanted to know. If you are looking for dead-tree books, I would suggest "Running Linux" published by O'Reilly to begin with.

As for teamspeak, no one will be able to help you until you tell us how you tried to install it (ie: from source, RPM etc) and what errors it is giving you.

what is the exact name of the file? an extension may help to know how to use it.

and generally, try using a shell (via "terminal" or xterm, rxvt, konsole - whatever fedora comes with) instead of graphical apps - you will learn a lot more that way. start here if you're not familiar:

First off, the type of programming you start with depends on the type of programming you want to do. Do you want to make whole systems, video games, or ???? there are thousands of things you can do with programming, and choosing what you like is the first step. I started programming with perl(a non-graphical language) and really enjoyed it. Perl is a simple programming language to learn, which makes it good for beginners.

If you would like to try learning perl, I would recommend Learning Perl, which you can find at [HTML]www.perl.com[/HTML] in the Orielly publishing section, or at a barnes and noble.

Aw, cmon! Guys, you're letting him go and try to be a programmer on FC4?! PEOPLE! Ok, as for you, Killjoy: Welcome! First of all, I assume you are new. Before you program, try to get to know your system _very well_ before. I suggest to install (print the docs first) gentoo as a system. One install teaches you a lot more than a week on a "loser-friendly" distro like FC4 or Mandriver. And one more thing: I'm into open-source since 2001, that makes it 5 years now. I'm sixteen too. When I started, I was a mindless gamer, now I get money from installing BSD's and Linuxes on other peoples computers. I program in C and Python. I know this and that. If you would be afraid to ask in LQ, mail me at binjajer_at_gmail.com. Good to see smoeone free himself from KillBill now and then. Phew, that was a lot of typing!

Edit: Oh, it's always confusing at the beggining. Did you get rid of Windoes? ARK is the KDE (www.kde.org) archiver, smoething like the windoes ZIP or WINRAR, but better. Damn, it's my third edit! My public profile has a wrong birthdate, it's 18.01.1990. And I was nto open source before I started using Linux. So don't mail me about that please!
