Overview

With the advent of the new 2.4-series kernels, a new XFree86 architecture and distribution, and advances soon slated to hit the KDE and GNOME markets, the time is ripe to craft the definitive and classic intermediate to advanced work covering Red Hat Linux. Red Hat Linux 7.2 Unleashed does not incorporate any previous material. All chapters concentrate on Red Hat Linux software and tools, and more specifically those software packages included with Red Hat Linux. There is new topic coverage in areas such as:

  • The architecture of the new Linux kernel;
  • Use of the new version 4.0 of the rpm command;
  • USB;
  • KDE 2.1/2.2;
  • GNOME 1.4;
  • Ximian GNOME;
  • Broadband access issues, routing, gateways, firewalling (SOHO networking);
  • Support for new filesystems;
  • The new XFree86 architecture and features;
  • Disk tuning;
  • New printing services (Red Hat now uses LPRng) ;
  • Security.

Editorial Reviews

This update of a bestseller on a previous version of Linux treats the popular operating system as a now "mature contender for all levels of computing." Chapters cover installation and configuration, system administration, system services administration, and programming and productivity. Included are Internet resources, command quick references, package manager listings, and two CD- ROMs containing the complete publisher's edition of Red Hat Linux with many software packages (not all of which are freeware). Ball belongs to the Northern Virginia Linux Users Group. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
