  1. If you have any good bookmarks for useful Linux pages, post them here. Export your bookmarks / favourites as an htm file and then attach them here. Also post a list of the sites.

    Hheheeh I know I will probably wind up being the only one who will be bothered to do this :eek: :) ;) , but it was a nice way of sharing these. I will add more in the future when I find them.

    A really good site from the above it here:

    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/

    There's a lot of really good information for beginners here.

    How to Record a CD from the command line
    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/basic/cdrecord.shtml

    bzip2 and bunzip: Files With .bz2 Extensions
    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/basic/bz2.shtml

    Using RPM
    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/basic/rpm.shtml

    Compiling a New Kernel
    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/tuning/kernelcompilation.shtml

    Configuring a Local Printer Using Red Hat's PrintTool
    http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/basic/printtool.shtml


    Try not to worry too much about the kernel compiling stuff right now, just have a look at some of the basics. There's some excellent information here for doing the common tasks, so you can get figured out how to do those in Linux and get on with the meatier stuff!!

    Oh, and here are some Linux and UNIX books I have bought that I would recommend buying.

    If you read lots of books, you will learn loads and will impress your family and friends with how little a life you now have ;) .

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos...37450/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_3_2/026-0133318-2467647

    Linux Server Hacks
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos...37450/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3_3/026-0133318-2467647

    Unix Shell Programming
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos...551/sr=1-12/ref=sr_1_2_12/026-0133318-2467647

    Of course, I am sure that there are millions and millions more. But reading is everything in UNIX, so if you've had a really good book on Linux or UNIX or anything you feel is related, post it.

    Two PDF files

    • "Understanding the Linux virtual memory manager": a very thorough, very descriptive guide of how the Linux (2.4 only, unfortunately) kernel handles memory. So thorough in fact that a simple traverse of source code will let you know what has changed in 2.6 (lazy buddy allocator, change of local node policy allocating, etc).
    • "The Linux 2.6 scheduler": another quite thorough guide explaining yet another critical part of any kernel, the process scheduler. In this PDF file is explained how the Linux 2.6 O(1) scheduler (created by Ingo Molnar) works.

    not a bookmark, but...

    ... a book recommendation. :)

    Linux Pocket Guide by Daniel J. Barrett (O'Reilly)

    For beginners this book is immeasurably helpful, but experienced users also find it very handy to have around. This book is always within reach on my desk.

    A no-brainer at ten bucks.

    UNIX Toolbox

    (First time poster, but Linux user since well before version 1.0 :)

    I recommend the UNIX Toolbox cb.vu/unixtoolbox.xhtm, "a collection of Unix/Linux/BSD commands and tasks which are useful for IT work or for advanced users". (The board won't let me format the above as an actual link.)
