Back Cover

  • Includes complete instructions and resources for duplicating and customizing the material in the book
  • Delves into the latest versions of three popular Linux distributions: Red Hat, Slackware, and Devian GNU/Linux
  • Features three usable, real-world case studies: a home user desktop system, a corporate e-commerce software development environment, and a Linux-based firewall

Linux-based operating systems are extremely powerful and flexible, but unlocking that power and flexibility requires knowledge and understanding of how the system works. Tuning and Customizing a Linux System goes beyond the mere basics of using and administrating Linux systems to cover how such systems are designed. Through detailed analyses of three popular Linux distributions, example configuration and administration tasks, and three real-world case studies, you will come away with a genuine mastery of Linux-based operating systems and perhaps even Unix-like systems in general.

Tuning and Customizing a Linux System is geared toward users of Linux systems who already know the basics, but aren’t yet gurus. The author fills in the gap left by other books, creating a bridge from the basics of “how to” to a level of true mastery. You’ll find detailed examples of what a Linux distribution actually consists of and explore three popular distributions in detail, learning useful techniques along the way. This provides you with a complete, practical understanding of what’s going on under the covers.
