This manual offers a concise introduction to the use and administration of Linux. It is aimed at system administrators who have had some experience using other operating systems and want to transition to Linux, but is also suitable for the use at schools and universities.
The manual incorporates selected chapters from the tuxcademy manuals
Introduction to Linux,
Linux Administration I,
Advanced Linux, and
Linux Administration II.
Topics include a thorough introduction to the Linux shell, the
editor, and the most important file management tools as well as a
primer on basic administration tasks like user, permission, and process
management. We present the organisation of the file system and the
administration of hard disk storage, describe the system boot procedure,
the configuration of services, the time-based automation of tasks and
the operation of the system logging service. The course is rounded out
by an introduction to TCP/IP and the configuration and operation of Linux
hosts as network clients, with particular attention to troubleshooting,
and chapters on the Secure Shell and printing to local and network
