View Full Version : [all variants] any advanced user guides?

October 14th, 2009, 09:29 PM
ive been using linux as my main OS for 5 years now. and never really spent time on advancing myself and learning more on the go. i consider myself to be rather tech savvy, but feel at a disadvantage when i constantly have to post a thread for every single problem i have.

are there any free guides, classes, whatever that goes beyond problems of beginners and teaches users how to do all sorts of nifty commands and such?

Do you mean a guide for, say Ubuntu or the Gnome desktop, or something like advanced Linux topics and command-line bash scripting? If you want to learn, the best way to do so is to try.

You can use the internet as a great resource for what you are interested in.

GNOME/Ubuntu Guides:
User Guide (http://library.gnome.org/users/user-guide/2.28/)
Administrator Guide (http://library.gnome.org/admin/system-admin-guide/2.28/)
Free Ubuntu Pocket Guide (http://www.ubuntupocketguide.com/index_main.html)

but from quick glimpse at all waht im looking at, it isnt fully on topic with what i think im looking for

im looking for stuff that involves how linux works etc etc

like making a mini distro or something. (without the programming part)

How about Linux From Scratch (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/)?

See the link in my sig for Linux Professional Institute Course Materials.
Also useful as a reference too.
