There is much that could be discussed about Linux, but I will not take that route here in my spot of the web. A quick Google Linux search will reveal lots of other web resources for learning about Linux in general.
I will however link to information about specific topics that I have had to learn to set up my own Linux installations. Hopefully this information will be of use to others either learning about Linux and/or setting up their own computers.
- GRUB boot manager
- Upgrading a RedHat kernel used to be difficult, is now trivial. I will leave this page for archaeological interest.
- Tools for working with your HDD
- Using your scanner with Linux
- The Linux Kernel Archives
- Porting device drivers to the 2.6 kernel
- A futex overview and update
- Debugging the kernel using Ftrace Part 1 and Part 2
- Secrets of the Ftrace function tracer
- Writing an ACPI driver - an introduction
This large body of links will eventually get broken down into individual pages or removed in the future (mostly the latter). If you are looking for applications for Linux your best bet is to start searching Freshmeat.
- Documentation (html)
- FAQ: g++
- Alpha Software Distribution (ftp) Pre-release versions of GNU software.
