Linux Quick Fix Notebook (Paperback)Peter Harrison (author)
- We can order this
In typical Linux "bibles," reserve the last third coverage for advanced topics
that sys admins use on a day by day basis. They tend to cover the underlying
concepts reasonably well, but fall short on hands-on instructions, forcing
admins to buy specialty books. This book sufficiently expands the advanced
sections found in these "bibles," providing step-by step instructions on how to
configure the most popular Linux back office applications.
To avoid confusion between the many flavors of Linux, each with it's own
GUI interface, this book exclusively uses the command line to illustrate the
tasks needed to be done. It provides all the expected screen output when
configuring the most commonly used Linux applications to help assure the
reader that they are doing the right thing. The Notebook also includes many of
the most commonly encountered errors with explanations of their causes and
how to fix them. The book's format is aimed at sys admins who often have to
do advanced tasks in which the underlying theory is understood, but the
commands to do it are forgotten or at the tips of their tongues.
As the line between power users and administrators continues to blur, as
computers move from the data center to the desktop, as Linux and Windows
gain equal footing in business, it becomes harder to remember and do it all.
This is the guide that gives admins the answers they need to common problems
and tasks, allowing them time to eat lunch.
