Linux Bible Eighth Edition by Christopher Negus
INTRODUCTION of Linux Bible Eighth Edition by Christopher Negus:
You’ll be able to’t be taught Linux with out utilizing it. I’ve come to that conclusion over greater than a decade of educating individuals to be taught Linux. You’ll be able to’t simply learn a guide; you possibly can’t simply take heed to a lecture. You want somebody to information you and you could bounce in and do it.
In 1999, Wiley revealed my Crimson Hat Linux Bible. The guide’s enormous success gave me the chance to turn out to be a full-time, unbiased Linux creator. For a few decade, I wrote dozens of Linux books and explored one of the best methods to elucidate Linux from the quiet of my small dwelling workplace. In 2008, I hit the highway.
I used to be employed by Crimson Hat, Inc. as a full-time teacher, educating Linux to skilled system directors searching for Crimson Hat Licensed Engineer (RHCE) certification. In my three years as a Linux teacher, I honed my educating expertise in entrance of reside individuals whose Linux expertise ranged from none to skilled skilled.
On this guide, I hope to show my expertise into textual content that takes you from somebody who has by no means used Linux to somebody with the abilities to turn out to be a Linux skilled. Now in its eighth version, this guide had turn out to be too broad in vary in earlier editions.
The guide coated a number of Linux distributions, described how you can run functions, touched on system administration, and offered an entry into Linux software program growth. Regardless of having been voted one of many prime 5 Linux books of all time three years in the past, the Linux Bible had misplaced its method.
This eighth version of the Linux Bible represents a serious overhaul. Nearly all the earlier content material has been rewritten or, usually, changed fully. The brand new focus of the guide will be summed up in these methods:
■ Newbie to licensed skilled: So long as you’ve gotten used a pc, mouse, and keyboard, you can begin with this guide. We let you know how you can get Linux, start utilizing it, step by crucial subjects, and in the end excel at administering and securing it.
■ System administrator–centered: If you find yourself achieved with this guide, you’ll not solely know how you can use Linux, but additionally modify and keep it. All of the subjects wanted to turn out to be a Crimson Hat Licensed Engineer are coated on this guide.
■ Emphasis on command-line instruments: Though point-and-click home windows for managing Linux have improved tremendously in recent times, many superior options can solely be utilized by typing instructions and enhancing configuration recordsdata manually. We educate you how you can turn out to be proficient with the Linux command-line shell.
■ Aimed toward fewer Linux distributions: In earlier editions, I described about 18 completely different Linux distributions. With just a few notable exceptions, hottest Linux distributions are both Crimson Hat–primarily based (Crimson Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS, and so forth) or Debian-based (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, KNOPPIX, and so forth).
I’ve centered on Crimson Hat as a result of that’s the place the well-paying Linux jobs are; I give a nod to Ubuntu all through as a result of that’s what lots of the greatest Linux followers begin with.
■ Many, many demos and workouts: As a substitute of simply telling you what Linux does, I really present you what it does. Then, to be sure you received it, you’ve gotten the chance to attempt workouts your self. Each process and train has been examined to work in Fedora or Crimson Hat Enterprise Linux. Many will work in Ubuntu as nicely.
