Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Ellen Siever is a writer and editor specializing in Linux and other open source topics. In addition to Linux in a Nutshell, she coauthored Perl in a Nutshell. She is a long-time Linux and Unix user, and was a programmer for many years until she decided that writing about computers was more fun. Stephen Figgins honed many of his computer skills while working as O'Reilly's book answer guy. A life long learner with many interests, Stephen draws on many resources to make difficult topics understandable and accessible. Now living in Lawrence, Kansas, he administrates Linux servers for Sunflower Broadband, a cable company. When not found working with computers, writing, or spending time with his family, you will likely find him outdoors. Stephen teaches wilderness awareness and living skills. Robert Love has been a Linux user and hacker since the early days. He is active in--and passionate about--the Linux kernel and GNOME desktop communities. His recent contributions to the Linux kernel include work on the kernel event layer and inotify. GNOME-related contributions include Beagle, GNOME Volume Manager, NetworkManager, and Project Utopia. Currently, Robert works in the Open Source Program Office at Google. Robert is the author of Linux Kernel Development (SAMS 2005) and the co-author of Linux in a Nutshell (2006 O'Reilly). He is also a Contributing Editor at Linux Journal. He is currently working on a new work for O'Reilly that will be the greatest book ever written, give or take. Robert holds a B.A. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Florida. A proud Gator, Robert was born in South Florida but currently calls home Cambridge, MA. Arnold Robbins, an Atlanta native, is a professional programmer and technical author. He has worked with Unix systems since 1980, when he was introduced to a PDP-11 running a version of Sixth Edition Unix. He has been a heavy AWK user since 1987, when he became involved with gawk, the GNU project's version of AWK. As a member of the POSIX 1003.2 balloting group, he helped shape the POSIX standard for AWK. He is currently the maintainer of gawk and its documentation. He is also coauthor of the sixth edition of O'Reilly's Learning the vi Editor. Since late 1997, he and his family have been living happily in Israel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht unbedingt für Anfänger 27. Januar 2013
Von LP
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Der mächtige Foliant ist sicherlich ein umfangreiches Kompendium, wird Anfängern aber vermutlich nicht so viel nutzen. Ich hatte mir das Buch aufgrund einer Literaturempfehlung aus dem BuchGetting Started with Raspberry Pi gekauft. Die Einführungen zu den einzelnen Kapiteln sind sicherlich sehr informativ, aber der Großteil des Buches ist für den Linux-Anfänger (bzw. auch etwas fortgeschritteneren Linux-Nutzer) noch nicht sinnvoll zu gebrauchen, da es hauptsächlich Auflistungen von Shell-Befehlen mit kurzen Erklärungen beinhaltet.
Da ich das Buch günstig gebraucht gekauft habe, werde ich es aber "für später" ins Regal stellen, da ich mir sehr gut vorstellen kann, daß es mir einmal als wertvolles Nachschlagewerk dienen kann.
Ich habe mir nun Running LINUXbestellt, das mir von vielen Seiten als bestes Linux-Buch für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene empfohlen wurde.


Mit zunehmendem Wissen wird das Buch natürlich immer wertvoller, daher gibt es jetzt volle 5 Punkte!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential Linux Text 9. September 2011
Von Steven Summers - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is the basis of my career. I was working doing phone support. I was the bridge between the customers and the linux engineers running the hosted application. As I became interested in the work the engineers were doing and showed a little aptitude someone recommended this book. I read it cover to cover while commuting on the train and now I have 11 years experience as a Linux/Unix engineer. On a daily basis I draw on knowledge that I was originally exposed to in this text.

What does it provide?

This text is not "linux for dummies." It is a complete overview of command line Linux administration intended for administrators. I knew nothing about Linux before I read it. After reading I was able to make a career change to become a full time administrator. It basically covers all of the major administration activities and gives a good overview of the commands necessary to accomplish these tasks. It also goes into some of the theory behind good administration without going to deep or getting pedantic.

If you are considering learning command line linux or just tinkering around and need a basis so you know what to google for this is a great starting point.

I now provide a copy of this book to any new engineers that I train. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I wore out my copy of an earlier edition. This one is better. 25. Oktober 2009
Von M. Helmke - Veröffentlicht auf
Years ago I purchased a copy of Linux in a Nutshell, fourth edition. That book has been well used and is looking a bit shabby. When O'Reilly offered me a free review copy of Linux in a Nutshell, sixth edition, I jumped at the chance. Some of the thoughts that follow will apply to either edition (as well as the not-reviewed fifth edition, which I don't have), but I will point out some of the more important or obvious updates to help others who also own older editions to determine whether the changes are sufficient to convince them to buy the new version.

This book is not intended as a tutorial, but rather as a quick reference. While the irony of titling a 900+ page book "... in a Nutshell" is not lost on me, like all of the books in O'Reilly's Nutshell series, this book is a fabulous resource for finding out the details of a specific command or concept rapidly.

Let me start with the foundation for my opinion that this book is one of the most useful and important books for anyone who uses Linux from the command line on a regular basis or wants to be able to or plans to do so. Any command you should desire to use is listed in chapter 3, with the command's syntax and options. This gives you one place to look that does not require an internet connection or the patience to scroll up and down reading man pages for commands. This is a book about Linux as it was originally conceived and intended: a powerful operating system based directly upon and consistent with the philosophy and design of Unix, but free for anyone to download, install, copy, modify, share and use.

This book is not about how to use Linux on the desktop, and in fact, the sixth edition does not cover the Linux desktop at all. What you do find are discussions, descriptions, and definitions of all of the main tools and tricks a person needs to get work accomplished using Linux as a platform--not the specific programming languages like C, Java or Python, but the underlying tools such as commands from the GNU project and BSD, editors like vi and emacs, using the bash shell, source code management using subversion and git (both new to this edition, replacing a discussion of CVS), and great introductions to Linux system and network administration. In addition, we have a wonderful new chapter on virtualization command line tools that covers all the main options such as KVM, Xen and VMware.

I am amazed that my description thus far has only scratched the surface of the book. I haven't yet mentioned the chapters covering sed and gawk, the discussion of software package management, the chapter detailing LILO and Grub boot loaders, or the lovely section on pattern matching which should save a lot of people a good amount of time.

My disappointments in the book are a bit niggly. While the book was written and tested using each of the main Linux distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora and SUSE), there have been a couple of updates to software covered in the book that were not available when the book went to press. Since I know how long it takes to write and prepare a manuscript for printing, it is kind of silly for me to want a book that was published in September 2009 to cover Windows 7 (although dual booting with earlier versions is covered), ext4, or Grub2, even if these are all current in late October 2009 (the latter two being included in Ubuntu 9.10).

The positives are that this is a clear, well written and edited (disclosure: I worked with one of the editors, Andy Oram, on VMware Cookbook), and filled with valuable information with an easy to use index and table of contents with a tighter than previous focus on the internal bits of Linux without the earlier distractions of trying to mention GNOME and KDE or a wider variety of shell options while only covering each with too little detail to be useful. This edition expands the content on the things it does cover to a very useful level of detail while making the hard decision of what to omit to keep the book within a bindable number of pages.

In any edition, this book has a permanent place on my shelf for reference. If you own an older version, the decision to buy the latest edition will depend on whether you want or need the absolute latest info on specific commands (this stuff doesn't change often, but it does change) and whether you are interested in the new or expanded material covered in this edition as outlined above. If you never use the command line in Linux, the book might not interest you. Otherwise, I can't imagine using Linux without having a copy nearby.

Disclosures: I bought an earlier edition, but was given the sixth edition free by O'Reilly as a review copy, I write for O'Reilly, and I have worked with one of the editors who also worked on this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An extensive reference for any serious computer collection 18. Januar 2010
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf
Libraries strong in system administration or Linux programming will find LINUX IN A NUTSHELL to be a powerful updated edition offering a focus of Linux options and all the latest new options for applying Linux commands. From learning hundreds of shell commands and understanding the Bash shell interpreter to processing text with expressions and using administrative tools, LINUX IN A NUTSHELL provides an extensive reference for any serious computer collection.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book if you have low standards 8. August 2011
Von D. R. Martz - Veröffentlicht auf
While the book has some utility as a reference, it is not well organized. Frequently a chapter or topic starts out in the worst possible way, which is to fog things up by discussing exception cases before an introduction to the topic. Then you will frequently see examples using command line characters that have not yet been explained, followed by tables exhaustively listing the various command line characters and including truncated, frequently ambiguous explanations. There are also many cases of circular explanations, where command x is defined as being like command y, except it is case sensitive, or it uses regex rules, or what have you. But when you go to command y, you find a poor explanation, so you wind up with very very clear understanding that command x is a partially explained variant of a vaguely defined command. This book is not an expeditious way to learn, nor is it particularly effective as a quick reference. You would be better off with half as much information and twice as much effort to convey it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My #1 pick for Linux 4. Juni 2014
Von Alex Alexzander - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have been asked quite a few times to recommend a book for the novice to learn Linux. This book is it. Effectively half the book is devoted to every command that typically comes standard on distributions. If you just look through those, say one or two commands a day and read the options you'll start to see what kind of capabilities Linux affords you.

Anyone looking to understand the basics will need to know package management and this gives you yum and apt-get and rpm and dpkg so you get perspective on both the Redhat and the Debian package management methods.

The bash shell, pattern matching vim (my favorite) and emacs basics to get you started. This book almost 1,000 pages and none of it wasted with useless info. Browse a couple commands a day and read the rest of the book cover to cover. You'll be rock'n Linux like a pro!
