New Free e-book Available!

by @ 6:41 am. Filed under ebook, freebies, How-To, SUSE Tips & Tricks

Good morning, everyone. Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday morning. I just wanted to let you know that I have completed another free ebook. It is 25 pages and covers the basics of managing software with YAST. It goes over what Installation Sources are, how to get a full list of them, and how to put them in. I also cover the basics of adding and removing software via YAST. The goal of such a book is to give people who have not yet had a chance the ability to get started quickly learning the basics of YAST so they can jump right in and be immediately productive in openSUSE, one of the best distributions of Linux available today.

A short table of contents includes:

Introduction………………………………………5
Open YAST……………………………………………6
Installation Sources………………………………….8
Finding YAST Installation Sources………………………9
Registering Installation Sources in YAST……………….10
Installing Software in YAST…………………………..17
Uninstalling Software in YAST…………………………21
Conclusion………………………………………….23

To get this book, you just sign up for the free “Introduction to Linux” course available from the left nav of my site: http://www.suseblog.com/. After the last class comes to you, a few days later, the free ebook arrives as a special bonus.

For anyone who has signed up previously, you will get a link in an email that you can use to download the ebook. If you are interested in the ebook, go ahead and enroll in the free Introduction to Linux course (available from my site). The course covers:

For anyone who may just be getting started using Linux, this course is for you!

    So, why must those of us with >5 years experience with Linux (RedHat, specifically), have to wade through an Introductory course to benefit from your YaST eBook? Seems odd to me to discourage people with experience from moving to SuSE, no?

  2. Scott Morris Says:

    To be honest, it adds quite a nice bit of bonus material to the end of the course. However, I do see your point, and thus will likely release it to the general public soon. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Rudi Pittman Says:

    Anyone with > 5 years experience with Linux would probably not have a problem finding and adding a yast source…installing a package and uninstalling a package etc… sounds like the ebook is aimed more AT newbies so the intro to linux course route seems ok to me.

  4. Sally Neill Says:

    Nice information, Linux baffles me so any newbie guides are great!, sally 🙂

    As a newbie, I have tried (with no success) to get this program downloaded, loaded up and running to perform ‘Mersenne Prime Search’ calculations on my PC. It runs on Suse Linux 10.1. Well if this book can tell me how to do it, I’ll let you know Scott. JPA

  6. Sha8e Says:

    Well even though you have a 5 year of experience to take a look at the book? I doubt it that you shall not get at least one tiny little info from it.

    For me I have moved from RHEL to SLES completely and it is much more better 🙂

    Thanks Scott for the Book…

  7. Scott Morris Says:

    Sha8e,
    Absolutely! No problem, I’m glad it has been found useful by those for whom it was intended. Thanks for coming by and have a great one.
