Linux network administrator’s guide

The Linux Network Administrator's Guide dispenses all the practical advice you need to join a network. Along with some hardware considerations, this highly acclaimed guide takes an in-depth look at all of the essential networking software that comes with the operating system--including basic infrastructure (TCP/IP, wireless networking, firewalling) and the most popular services on Linux systems. The book can be an invaluable companion for any network administrator interested in integrating Linux into their Windows environment.

Self-service Linux – Mastering the art of problem determination

This book is about effectively and efficiently diagnosing problems that occur in the Linux environment. It covers good investigation practices, how to use the information and resources on the Internet, and then dives right into detail describing how to use the most important problem determination tools that Linux has to offer. This book has useful information for any Linux user but is certainly geared more towards the Linux professional. This includes Linux power users, Linux administrators, developers who write software for Linux, and support staff who support products on Linux. Readers who casually use Linux at home will benefit also, as long as they either have a basic understanding of Linux or are at least willing to learn more about it—the latter being most important.

Ultimately, as Linux increases in popularity, there are many seasoned experts who are facing the challenge of translating their knowledge and experience to the Linux platform. Many are already experts with one or more operating systems except that they lack specific knowledge about the various command line incantations or ways to interpret their knowledge for Linux. This book will help such experts to quickly adapt their existing skill set and apply it effectively on Linux. This power-packed book contains real industry experience on many topics and very hard-to-find information. Without a doubt, it is a must have for any developer, tester, support analyst, or anyone who uses Linux.

The Linux command line

You've experienced the shiny, point-and-click surface of your Linux computer—now dive below and explore its depths with the power of the command line. The Linux Command Line takes you from your very first terminal keystrokes to writing full programs in Bash, the most popular Linux shell. Along the way you'll learn the timeless skills handed down by generations of gray-bearded, mouse-shunning gurus: file navigation, environment configuration, command chaining, pattern matching with regular expressions, and more. In addition to that practical knowledge, author William Shotts reveals the philosophy behind these tools and the rich heritage that your desktop Linux machine has inherited from Unix supercomputers of yore.

As you make your way through the book's short, easily-digestible chapters, you'll learn how to:

Create and delete files, directories, and symlinks
Administer your system, including networking, package installation, and process management
Use standard input and output, redirection, and pipelines
Edit files with Vi, the world's most popular text editor
Write shell scripts to automate common or boring tasks
Slice and dice text files with cut, paste, grep, patch, and sed

Once you overcome your initial "shell shock," you'll find that the command line is a natural and expressive way to communicate with your computer. Just don't be surprised if your mouse starts to gather dust.

Ubuntu pocket guide and reference

At just 5.25 x 8 inches and 166 pages, Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference is a compact yet comprehensive guide to everyday Ubuntu use. It's ideal for those who need vital information on all aspects of using Ubuntu, but who don’t have time to wade through thick documentation.

Each chapter of Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference tackles an aspect of Ubuntu. First, you learn about installation—getting Ubuntu onto your computer—after which you learn how to configure your computer's hardware. Following this, you’re introduced to the Ubuntu desktop, and the tricks and techniques of efficient day-to-day usage. The book then describes the highways of the Ubuntu filesystem, and gives a full run-down of Ubuntu’s file manager.

Next, the command-line is tackled in-depth, after which software management is explained. Finally, system security is described—configuring the firewall, installing antivirus, and encrypting sensitive data. Appendixes provide a glossary of terms, and a guide to understanding technical documentation. Written for anybody switching to Ubuntu, particularly former Windows users, Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference assumes zero Linux knowledge. It provides the wisdom of the expert user and concisely conveys core competencies.

Advanced Linux Programming

Advanced Linux Programming is intended for the programmer already familiar with the C programming language. Authors Alex Samuel, Jeffrey Oldham, and Mark Mitchell of CodeSourcery, LLC take a tutorial approach and teach the most important concepts and power features of the GNU/Linux system in application programs.

If you're a developer already experienced with programming for the GNU/Linux system, are experienced with another UNIX-like system and are interested in developing GNU/Linux software, or want to make the transition for a non-UNIX environment and are already familiar with the general principles of writing good software, this book is for you. In addition, you will find that this book is equally applicable to C and C++ programming. Even those progamming in other languages will find this book useful since the C language APIs and conventions are the lingua franca of GNU/Linux.

GTK+/Gnome application development

According to a description available on ibibo, the first chapter of the book gives you an overview of GTK+ and Gnome technologies. Chapters 2 and 3 rapidly cover the basics of GTK+ programming. These chapters move very quickly, and give you the information you need to understand the remainder of the book. For a gentler introduction to GTK+, you may wish to read the GTK+ Tutorial or Eric Harlow's book Developing Linux Applications with GTK+ and GDK.

Java application development on Linux

Linux is the fastest-growing Java development platform because it saves money and time by serving as a platform for both development and deployment. But developers face significant platform-specific challenges and opportunities when managing and deploying Java applicaitons in a controlled production environment. After a simple command-line application introduces basic tools this program leads readers through business-logic object analysis, database design, Java servlet UIs, Java ServerPages (JSP) UISs, Swing GUIs, and Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) GUIs. Scaling up to the enterprise level provides the opportunity to use both the JBoss Application Server and the Apache Geronimo Application Server, and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB).

Linux device drivers

This is, on the surface, a book about writing device drivers for the Linux system. That is a worthy goal, of course; the flow of new hardware products is not likely to slow down anytime soon, and somebody is going to have to make all those new gadgets work with Linux. But this book is also about how the Linux kernel works and how to adapt its workings to your needs or interests. Linux is an open system; with this book, it is more open and accessible to a larger community of developers.

Linux kernel in a nutshell

Written by a leading developer and maintainer of the Linux kernel, Linux Kernel in a Nutshell is a comprehensive overview of kernel configuration and building, a critical task for Linux users and administrators.

No distribution can provide a Linux kernel that meets all users' needs. Computers big and small have special requirements that require reconfiguring and rebuilding the kernel. Whether you are trying to get sound, wireless support, and power management working on a laptop or incorporating enterprise features such as logical volume management on a large server, you can benefit from the insights in this book. Linux Kernel in a Nutshell covers the entire range of kernel tasks, starting with downloading the source and making sure that the kernel is in sync with the versions of the tools you need. In addition to configuration and installation steps, the book offers reference material and discussions of related topics such as control of kernel options at runtime.

A key benefit of the book is a chapter on determining exactly what drivers are needed for your hardware. Also included are recipes that list what you need to do to accomplish a wide range of popular tasks.
