Advanced Topics

  • Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide - This document is both a tutorial and a reference on shell scripting with Bash. It assumes no previous knowledge of scripting or programming, but progresses rapidly toward an intermediate/advanced level of instruction.

It will cover all of the aspects of keeping the system running, handling user accounts, backups, configuration of the system, installing and upgrading software, and more. Whereas some of this information is in the Installation Guide (just to get the system off the ground) this book should be much more complete.

Beginners and experienced users alike should find the information they need to cover nearly all important administration activities required to manage a Linux network configuration.

It discusses how to install and setup a Red Hat Linux Server with all the necessary security and optimization for a high performance Linux specific machine.
  • Custom Linux: A Porting Guide - Porting LinuxPPC to a Custom SBC - This guide describes a work in progress, to port Linux to a custom PowerPC-based board. This means making the operating system work on unfamiliar hardware. Anyone, who is on the same track might benefit from reading this paper, as it highlights the pitfalls and problematic points along the way.
