The Debian Administrators Handbook

#1 Post by smilliken » Thu May 26, 2016 10:51 pm

The link to this book was provided in one of the Raspberry Pi Google+ forums I follow.

https://debian-handbook.info/get/now/

I looked to see if there was a previous post about this book, but didn't see one.

Surprises me that it hasn't been mentioned here before.

A few years back, I read through most of the Debian 7 "Wheezy" version of The Debian Administrator's Handbook and fell in love with Debian all over again. Excellent resource for those who want to learn about and run Debian.

It has been mentioned and discussed on the forum but it's been years back. It is a great resource packed with detailed information and like others it's easy to get buried and forgotten about. Glad it was brought to attention again. :cool:

It appears to be an easy read. Only just started into it. It has been around for years, apparently, and gets updated with every release of Debian. Contains Debian 8 in the book and is good for the beginner and the veteran, which is what I like about it.

Debian.
I control it.
Thank you for making this possible, smillken! Thank you, maintainers and distributors.
Now maybe I can figure it out a little bit more.....
