    Want to be master of the noble way of linux

    ***Please, if this is not the right place to write this just move it***

    I have installed Ubuntu a couple of days ago and I loved it, everything worked very well.

    But I got an urge to learn more. I wanted to know what all you other cleaver people know. So I will be able to spread the good word of Ubuntu myself

    My first thing I wrote were this http://www.linuxforum.com/forums/ind...html#msg787471

    But I have now realized that Ubuntu still is a good start for me (in the beginning I wanted to spread the blessing of Linux to the world) and that is the reason that I write this topic.

    I am a Ubuntu and Linux beginner in all aspects, I have some experience with Java programming but that is it, I have an Dell Inspirion 6000 http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2376 laptop.

    But where do i start if I want to become the greatest master of Linux that has ever logged on to the net?

    I know I have to start in some small stuff and slowly (but steady ) move on to epic level Linux user but please help me.

    To be honest the best way to learn Ubuntu is to use Ubuntu.

    From there do some reading, follow your interests here, and check out the Ubuntu wiki and of course google will list lots of learning opportunities. Just start with a google search

    As a longer term aspiration - you could roll your own Linux distro with Linux From Scratch.

    For the present, just look at the Ubuntu documentation.

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/

    Okay will do.

    But as a little question ( 1) I know it maybe is difficult to answer 2) I know I have to follow my interests) but when I have learned all the basic where is a good place to start? I am lvl 1 and I have to fight some lvl 1 problems or else I ( = My interest in learning more) may die in a high lvl encounter.

    How long term is that?

    Do I have to master all the aspects of all Linux distros before I can do that?

    advice is like.....usually worthless..

    nevertheless, here is mine

    if you want to become a master you will have to use the masters tools, and these you can find on the command line.

    it seems like a dragon to fight at first, but it is a fast teacher and will turn into a powerful servant quickly.

    I've been using Linux for well over a decade and I have yet to "roll my own" distro. The suggestion to just use it is a wise one - you may or may not decide/want to dig into any of the many nooks and crannies that exist in the Linux eco-system. That's part of the beauty: if you do want to crawl inside of this or that, you can - the source is right there and available. but you don't have to, if you don't have the inclination.

    thank you for your advice and it were not worthless

    I found http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.org/index.php that starts VERY BASIC. Even I know some of the things there before I read it

    So soon I will be powerful enough to summon the mighty power of the Bash to my side and CONQUER THE WORLD!!! Mu ha ha ha ha

    Thank you. It is very nice to know that I am able to call myself master of linux before I have battled that mighty beast

    You read a book as you go along. If you want to have an intense knowledge of Linux it's a good way to go. Don't start this weekend though, get to know Ubuntu a little better.

    I suggest you to read about the Power Cycle Bug in the HDD's of laptops using linux and see if you are affected ( I'm not sure this is fixed already. ) Just keep an eye of your Power Cycle Count in S.M.A.R.T. The package you need is smartmontools.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install smartmontools
    And then just use:
    Code:
    sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda1
    where sda1 is your HDD and look for Power Cycle Count
