Repository Of Information.

Hi Guys,

Are there any comprehensive set of documents which would help me to understand the openSUSE and the way Linux works in a better manner? Is there one single place where I could find say the details like, all commands, how to use Console, the linux OS architecture, the file-system details, the kernel and all its related details and how networking is done. And all such nitty-gritty details?

Thank you.

Thanks A Lot Andrea!

It is really huge and would take substantial amount of time to read. But thanks anyway.

And yes it is useful too.

Thank You.

There’s a very comprehensive handbook for openSUSE installed on your computer. You view it on your web browser. The location of the index is: /usr/share/doc/manual/opensuse-manual_en/manual/index.html. Browse to it and open it in your Web Browser, then bookmark it – invaluable resources for reference. This set is right up to date.

Scroll down the index to this topic: 8 Shell Basics – that will give you an intro to command line with focus on openSUSE. And the whole index is v interesting.

Then on the broader perspective, if you’ve installed the RPM “howtoenh”, you’ll find on your computer another html book containing an unbeleievable list of HowTos for doing many things Linux. Bring that up in your Browser and bookmark it too, to peruse at leisure. It’s here: /usr/share/doc/howto/en/html/HOWTO-INDEX/index.html . This set can have some very old entries – so be careful.
