Linux Bible 2007 Edition: Install/Run 10+ GNU/Linux Distributions

Filed under
Linux

The Wiley book, Linux Bible - 2007 Edition, by Christopher Negus, the author of popular book Red Hat Linux Bible, got at least one thing right: it gives the reader an option to select one of many GNU/Linux distributions available today according to his or her requirements/taste.

The necessity of sticking to a distribution just because it happened to come with the a “Red Hat Linux Bible,” “Debian GNU/Linux Bible,” “The Official Ubuntu Book”, “Linux Made Easy” and plenty of other such GNU/Linux books that the user happened to buy in search of a ‘linux book’ is present no more. This book covers the installations of over a dozen GNU/Linux distributions and includes all of those distributions on the DVD & CD that come with the book. The distributions covered by the book include:

1. Fedora Core
2. Debian GNU/Linux
3. openSUSE Linux
4. KNOPPIX
5. Yellow Dog Linux
6. Gentoo Linux
7. Slackware Linux
8. Freespire
9. Mandriva Linux
10. Ubuntu Linux
11. Coyote Linux Firewall

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
