About this book

Written by award-winning author Keir Thomas, Beginning SUSE Linux, Second Edition is the comprehensive guide to openSUSE Linux 10.1, the community-created version of SUSE Linux.

The book starts with an introduction to the world of Linux and the open source community, and this is followed by an illustrated step-by-step guide to openSUSE installation and hardware configuration.

A special edition of openSUSE 10.1 is provided on the DVD-ROM that comes with the book. This version includes several additional items of proprietary software, as well as all the devel software packages, making for a comprehensive package.

The book shows how to wield total control over your newly installed operating system. It will guide you through system customization opportunities and common tasks like listening to audio CDs and MP3s, watching movies, and performing office- and Internet-related tasks. A large part of the book is dedicated to advanced command-line techniques necessary to maintain your system and become a true Linux master!

This second edition of the best-selling first edition has been boosted by 200 pages to over 700 in total, and has been completely revised and updated. Beginning SUSE Linux, Second Edition is the only print title to cover openSUSE 10.1.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The goals of this book are to convince users of other desktop operating systems that Linux is adequate to fulfill all of their computing needs, and to guide the brave through the switch to a Linux platform. The target audience is a computer user … . The overall impression is that a moderately technical person may be intrigued enough to break open the enclosed CD and try Linux on a spare machine." (Alberto Squassabia, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (5), May, 2008)
