Description

This is Linux for those of us who don't mind typing. All Linux users and administrators tend to like the flexibility and speed of Linux administration from the command line in byte-sized chunks, instead of fairly standard graphical user interfaces. Beginning the Linux Command Line is verified against all of the most important Linux distributions, and follows a task-oriented approach which is distribution agnostic. Now this Second Edition of Beginning the Linux Command Line updates to the very latest versions of the Linux Operating System, including the new Btrfs file system and its management, and systemd boot procedure and firewall management with firewalld!



Updated to the latest versions of Linux
Work with files and directories, including Btrfs!
Administer users and security, and deploy firewalld
Understand how Linux is organized, to think Linux!

Review Text

"Beginning the Linux Command Line gives the reader practical information without overwhelming with detail, yet still fills in background where context is necessary for real understanding. The final chapter, on shell scripting, is a good example of the author's well-paced tutorial approach, and leaves the reader prepared for tackling many admin tasks." (The MagPi, Issue 45, May, 2016)
