Porteus Command list

Post#1 by Jack » 16 Aug 2015, 04:06

Where can I find other commands like these 2 psinfo and aplay -l and what they mean. I know there is a lot more of them but I don't know where to look. If there is a book or PDF out there or some where? I want to learn more about Linux.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Glad to hear you want to learn more about Linux.

Here are a few important commands:

http://www.tecmint.com/20-advanced-comm ... nux-users/
http://www.tecmint.com/20-advanced-comm ... x-experts/

A few of them require you to be root user before executing. Simply do this to become root.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: toor
Good luck :)

And some for scripting:

Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
An in-depth exploration of the art of shell scripting
I tried loading it as epup but failed, URL invalid. That would be a neat addition to my epup reader...

Not really want you to load the free books (they want info in exchange for puplic domain books, which is kind of a scam), but that above page has some neat background on backup strategy and other admin tasks.

Also, check out http://tldp.org - The Linux Documentation Project - now with wiki: http://wiki.tldp.org/ :)


Tar, best for backups:
