"Neither a "Starting Linux" book nor a dry reference manual, this book has a lot to offer to those coming to Fedora from other operating systems or distros."
-- Behdad Esfahbod, Fedora developer
This book will get you up to speed quickly on Fedora Linux, a securely-designed Linux distribution that includes a massive selection of free software packages. Fedora is hardened out-of-the-box, it's easy to install, and extensively customizable - and this book shows you how to make Fedora work for you.
Fedora Linux: A Complete Guide to Red Hat's Community Distribution will take you deep into essential Fedora tasks and activities by presenting them in easy-to-learn modules. From installation and configuration through advanced topics such as administration, security, and virtualization, this book captures the important details of how Fedora Core works--without the fluff that bogs down other books and help/how-to web sites. Instead, you can learn from a concise task-based approach to using Fedora as both a desktop and server operating system.
In this book, you'll learn how to:
- Install Fedora and perform basic administrative tasks
- Configure the KDE and GNOME desktops
- Get power management working on your notebook computer and hop on a wired or wireless network
- Find, install, and update any of the thousands of packages available for Fedora
- Perform backups, increase reliability with RAID, and manage your disks with logical volumes
- Set up a server with file sharing, DNS, DHCP, email, a Web server, and more
- Work with Fedora's security features including SELinux, PAM, and Access Control Lists (ACLs)
Whether you are running the stable version of Fedora Core or bleeding-edge Rawhide releases, this book has something for every level of user. The modular, lab-based approach not only shows you how things work-but also explains why--and provides you with the answers you need to get up and running with Fedora Linux.
