Linux powers the servers and machines that power a significant proportion of the Internet, and it forms the backbone of a variety of different modern operating systems, particularly in the embedded and smaller systems markets, such as ARM-based desktops, laptops and set top systems. In fact, Linux is now the solution behind so many different things: from game consoles, to media platforms, to massive database servers, to clusters, and to some of the most powerful computing clusters in the world. Linux manages to span the full gamut of hardware platforms from watches to supercomputers. In this bibliography we have collected a range of different titles that cover the basics of installing your Linux system, how to use it and deploy it, and how to make use of the different systems. We've also collected guides to specific environments and distributions, including Fedora, SUSE, Ubuntu and the Raspberry Pi platform. For more generic content, there are titles on kernel development, device driver building and the Linux programming interfaces. Maybe programming Linux is more appealing to you, in which case you can find books on everything from system programming to C++, Perl, Python and more with a focus on the Linux or Linux-like environment. For administration and deployment, you'll want to examine the books that cover the core of administration, shell tools, and the specific guides on security, Oracle and development stack solutions such as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and Perl/Python/PHP). Finally, if you want to develop your professional skills and get certified, or just learn the finer details of the internals, then Safari Books Online has everything you need here and more.
The authoritative guide to Linux command line and shell scripting?completely updated and revised [it's not a guide to Linux as a whole ? just to scripting]The Linux command line allows you to type specific Linux commands directly to the system so that you can easily manipulate files and query system resources, thereby permitting you to automate commonly used functions and even schedule those programs to run automatically. This new edition is packed with new and revised content, reflecting the many changes to new Linux versions, including coverage of alternative shells to the default bash shell. For this edition, the author has teamed up with another Linux expert ? with their shared expertise, they take you beyond the basics of shell scripting and guide you through using shell scripting for higher-level applications that are commonly found in Linux environments. In addition, this edition features a host of real-world examples, so you can see how the scripts work in application.Reflects changes to new Linux versions and covers alternate shells to the default bash shellOffers new chapters on working with file system commands and software installation commandsIncludes a plethora of real-world examples of advanced shell scripting Shows how to use shell scripts in a graphical desktop environment With Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible you'll learn to manage file systems, install software, write scripts for graphical desktops, work with alternative shells, and more.
This unique and valuable collection of tips, tools, and scripts provides clear, concise, hands-on solutions that can be applied to the challenges facing anyone running a network of Linux servers from small networks to large data centers in the practical and popular problem-solution-discussion O'Reilly cookbook format. The Linux Cookbook covers everything you'd expect: backups, new users, and the like. But it also covers the non-obvious information that is often ignored in other books the time-sinks and headaches that are a real part of an administrator's job, such as: dealing with odd kinds of devices that Linux historically hasn't supported well, building multi-boot systems, and handling things like video and audio. The knowledge needed to install, deploy, and maintain Linux is not easily found, and no Linux distribution gets it just right. Scattered information can be found in a pile of man pages, texinfo files, and source code comments, but the best source of information is the experts themselves who built up a working knowledge of managing Linux systems. This cookbook's proven techniques distill years of hard-won experience into practical cut-and-paste solutions to everyday Linux dilemmas. Use just one recipe from this varied collection of real-world solutions, and the hours of tedious trial-and-error saved will more than pay for the cost of the book. But those who prefer to learn hands-on will find that this cookbook not only solves immediate problems quickly, it also cuts right to the chase pointing out potential pitfalls and illustrating tested practices that can be applied to a myriad of other situations. Whether you're responsible for a small Linux system, a huge corporate system, or a mixed Linux/Windows/MacOS network, you'll find valuable, to-the-point, practical recipes for dealing with Linux systems everyday. The Linux Cookbook is more than a time-saver; it's a sanity saver.
