openSUSE Linux Rants
- New Free e-book Available!
by Scott Morris
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:
- Open YaST
- Installation Sources
- Finding YaST Installation Sources
- Registering Installation Sources in YaST
- Installing Software in YaST
- Uninstalling Software in YaST
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.
