Here are links to other Linux resources. See also ChurchServerProjectResources. I have other resource lists on my home TWiki.


Recent Notes

  • As Linux seems to be starting to gain public notice (at least in terms of articles and books published about Linux), it seems less necessary to record resources here. I'll add a few today, then probably only add those that seem exceptionally useful in the future.

Online Books (Not Only Linux)

Other Lists of Linux Resources

Sites with Goals like WikiLearn

  • Linux Migration, Inc. — " This site gives you the nuts and bolts view of how to get things going in Linux in the shortest amount of time. No need to wade through lots of documentation." — The page on networking seems quite good, with information on changing the IP address of a machine.

Introductory Tutorials

  • LPI Certification 101 Exam Prep -- Looks like an excellent IBM tutorial on introductory Linux, although it is advertised as a tutorial for certification. It just seems way too elementary for that. I think there are 8 parts to the tutorial -- maybe it gets significantly more advanced, or maybe LPI 101 certification is very basic.
  • ITSC 1307 UNIX Operating System; Allan Kochis, viewed 12 Sept 2002 -- professor's class notes from a course on Unix, looks useful, I read up to u008.html on SED -- some errors in the beginning (IMHO) but quite helpful -- he also has notes (nearby) on a C++ class -- I haven't looked at those.
  • The Linux Tutorial; viewed 25 April 2003; — this site sounds promising, but I haven't done any reading so far. From the first page:

This site is a detailed introduction to Linux. It is based on my book Linux User's Resource, with a great many additions and I continue to add to the site almost daily. Please keep in mind that this is all copyrighted material. ...

If you are looking for answers to specific questions, then your best bet is to look through the on-line knowledge base for your distribution, any of the numerous newsgroups, or the HOWTOs that come with most distributions. This site is intended as an introductory to intermediate tutorial and is not necessarily intended as step-by-step instructions or a place to provide you links to every other Linux site on the Internet. ...

Introductory and General Linux Sites

  • LinuxNewbie.org
  • www.fifi.org Section 1: User Commands -- Man pages for something like 1500 commands
  • man pages -- lots and lots of man pages
  • [[http://www.linuxcommand.org/superman_pages.html][Super Man Pages -- "the man pages for Red Hat 8.0 presented in both alphabetical and functional order"
  • LinuxOrbit HOWTOs -- after perusing a through of these (and adding links to them at some appropriate places on WikiLearn), the site looks pretty good. Some HOWTOs have scary titles (17 Easy Steps to Samba: Version 1.0) -- maybe not a reflection on this site, but maybe a reflection on Linux. The site probably has stuff besides HOWTOS, haven't looked. Two (related) problems: the font size is too small to suit me, and I can't increase the font size using IE5s View -> Text Size. Oops, maybe that was because I didn't have the IE option to ignore font sizes specified on web pages checked (I thought it worked on other sites, though -- I'll have to pay attention).
  • IBM developerWorks: Linux zone -- the "introductory page" to the Linux zone -- updated often (I assume) with links to current stories. Also see Linux at IBM -- the Linux "portal"
  • Various resources at http://www.linux-mandrake.com (and the web sites of other distros)
  • Linux Step by Step -- sounds a little bit like my intent with WikiLearn -- "notebook style, first person accounts of installing software or hardware on a Linux system" sounds good -- I'm going to dig into DNS first, and then PostFix if it's covered.
  • Articles, Tips, How-To's; A.P. Lawrence Home; UNIXART -- May officially be for SCO Unix, but seems to have some useful articles, and some of them are intentionally brief (for the person in a hurry).
  • A Scientist's and Engineer's Guide to Workstations and Supercomputers -- looks pretty good, could be as old as 1993 (or at least it's based on a book from then)
  • A History of Unix — with a sidebar with links to some intriguing page titles, like The 10 Unix commands every beginner needs to know... and The 62 Core Commands — seems worth exploring further
