Reddit: What is the "official" LPIC-1 Cert guide? Help me choose from the tones of resources available ?

Friday 10th of February 2017 08:18:37 AM

Hello, I am a student and I decided to get the LPIC-1 certification. I am currently looking for self-study guides but I am very confused because there is a ton of them, but none of them is similar, they all seem to cover different contents. I don't want to invest my time in a guide, only to find out later it didn't cover the the correct set of objectives. So, here's a list of all the updated (Version-400) self-study guides that I found online, please help me choose one, or in what order to read them:

*LPIC-1 Certification Study Guide: Exam 101-400 and Exam 102-400 4th Edition By Christine Bresnahan and Richard Blum

*CompTIA Linux+ / LPIC-1 Cert Guide by Ross Brunson and Sean Walberg

*CompTIA Linux+/LPIC-1 Certification All-in-One Exam Guide By Rob Tracy

TuxMachines: Linux-driven dev board harnesses Sitara PRU-ICSS

Friday 10th of February 2017 02:18:31 AM

MYIR unveiled a new development board for its TI AM437x based “MYC-C437X” module designed to tap the AM437x’s PRU-ICSS real-time chips.

In late 2015, MYIR launched its MYD-C437X baseboard and MYC-C437x COM based on TI’s single Cortex-A9, 1GHz Sitara PRU-ICSS (Programmable Real-Time Unit and Industrial Communication Subsystem) AM437x SoC. Now, the Chinese manufacturer has spun a MYD-C437X-PRU development board that uses the same Linux-driven MYC-C437x COM. It’s designed for developers who want to exploit the capabilities of the AM437x’s quad-core, 200MHz PRU-ICSS real-time, programmable chips. The MYC-C437x module is again supported with a Linux BSP, now upgraded to a Linux 4.1.18 kernel.

TuxMachines: Poverty Helps You Keep Technology Safe and Easy

Friday 10th of February 2017 02:13:20 AM

But wait! There’s more! The Android phones that got famous for burning up everything in sight were top-dollar models my wife says she wouldn’t want even if we could afford them. Safety first, right? Frugality’s up there, too.

Now let’s talk about how I got started with Linux.

Guess what? It was because I was poor! The PC I had back in the days of yore ran DOS just fine, but couldn’t touch Windows 98 when it came out. Not only that, but Windows was expensive, and I was poor. Luckily, I had time on my hands, so I rooted around on the Internet (at phone modem speed) and eventually lit upon Red Hat Linux, which took forever to download and had an install procedure so complicated that instead of figuring it out I wrote an article about how Linux might be great for home computer use someday in the future, but not at the moment.

Ten Years as Desktop Linux User: My Open Source World, Then and Now

I've been a regular desktop Linux user for just about a decade now. What has changed in that time? Keep reading for a look back at all the ways that desktop Linux has become easier to use -- and those in which it has become more difficult -- over the past ten years. I installed Linux to my laptop for the first time in the summer of 2006. I started with SUSE, then moved onto Mandriva and finally settled on Fedora Core. By early 2007 I was using Fedora full time. There was no more Windows partition on my laptop. When I ran into problems or incompatibilities with Linux, my options were to sink or swim. There was no Windows to revert back to. Read more
