Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Whenever a new version of Fedora arrives, the cognoscenti always know where to turn for really thorough coverage of it: that big, red Unleashed book. So it is again with Fedora 5 and Red Hat Fedora 5 Unleashed. Paul and Andrew Hudson cover Fedora 5 (and, by extension, much of Red Hat) from every standpoint: installation, configuration, usage, system administration, server operations, security, performance tuning, and even programming.

There’s a good deal of new coverage in this edition, from Fedora’s many new and updated applications to its improved hardware support (for instance, AMD64 and better wireless networking). Among the most exciting improvements for those who want to use Fedora to reduce costs in business: a new chapter on Xen, the powerful new virtualization system that lets you run multiple operating systems on one computer. (Think VMware, only free.)

Fedora 5 remains gigantic. (So it’s really handy that Red Hat Fedora 5 Unleashed comes with the entire distro on DVD-ROM.) Having said that, The Fedora Project’s leaders have tried to slim down the core distribution somewhat. This means many users will be spending more time with the yum package management tool. Fortunately, the authors cover yum in depth, from basic to advanced usage. If you’re supporting a network of Fedora boxes, you’ll even learn how to set up your own local repository to save bandwidth.

As always, you can rely on Red Hat Fedora 5 Unleashed to cover pretty much everything: client applications like Firefox and OpenOffice.org; user management; backup/restore; remote access; automating administrative tasks; Apache; database services; file/print; DNS; LDAP; Python; PHP; Perl; kernel management; and more. Whether you’re in the mood for games or a command line “master class,” it’s in here. Bill Camarda, from the June 2006 Read Only

    Red Hat Fedora Core 5 Unleashed Review

    Fedora Core 5 was released in March of 2006 so getting this book to press in June was a huge undertaking and the author's have done an excellent job of including tons of information into this book. The Step-by-Step installation chapters include screen shots of the whole process. These are always a great addition to any instructional book. Post installation configuration includes information on configuring keyboards and mice which is done during the installation process and shouldn't need to be repeated unless the user changes something. Additional screen shots are used throughout the book which add the connection between the material talked about in the book and what the user sees on the screen. This book refers to several excellent applications (pirut, yumex) which are a part of Fedora Core 5 but not shown in the Menu's by default. Although this book attempts to bring the history of Linux, Step-by-Step installation, a plethora of information for beginners and experienced user alike. I don't believe a beginner would be able to use this book as a guide. The heavy use of computer industry acronyms would only serve to confuse the beginner. This book should definitely be purchased by experienced computer users who want to break into the daily use of Linux and experienced Linux users as a resource for troubleshooting and configuration. An overall excellent resource for every Linux enthusiasts bookshelf.
