I've been pondering about an administration guide, but I feel that it is a job which needs at least 5 or 6 contributors from different fields. I can contribute a lot to system management, performance tuning as far as system components is concerned (like I/O), storage management (lvm, file system tuning) and memory management (kernel), but I have very little experience with monitoring or various server components (like Samba, NFS, ...) apart from the pure basics. I once started a similar aspect using DITA (IBM's Darwin Information Typing Architecture) just to get a feeling about DITA, but found the support for the language too limited (little community coverage).

Version 1.3 of Linux Sea (PDF) has been published.

Changes: added information on file system labels and UUIDs as well as how to use them in fstab (and why they don't work for the kernel's root=... setting out-of-the-box).

Very nice guide, thank you for writing it up, maintaining / updating it, and making it freely available.

Chapter 7 is (IMO) most helpful and your examples are clear and concise, perfect for the "new user" wanting to compile a custom kernel.

Hi, about the compilation of the current, I use for a while this command :

Code:

# time make && make modules_install && make install


So, there's no need to cp manually the bzimage.

Thanks for all the heads up.

No, I haven't forgotten about the "make install" one, I'm going to add this in later (it's now mentioned in the TODO file) as I can now test everything in virtual systems (yay for KVM)!

Furthermore, the document has had a quick update on openrc/baselayout, but I'm sure I've forgotten a few references here and there (just got it working here, openrc did just fine, but SELinux failed on it).

Hooray !!

I have not spent much time with this, but there is a definite need for more current documentation and standard practices. I hope to make time to read this in detail.

Depending on your focus, I want to mention adding the apropos command in the man page section. I was a user for a long time before I stumbled on this command in some other intro manual. It does have its some use when one does not know the exact command to use. One example, (not a very god one) is "apropos dhcp"

Good idea. I'll add it to the man page section. Note that "apropos" is similar (if not the same) for "man -k".

Good stuff, i've had a quick skim through and seems it would be a great place to start for a linux "noob" and also has some good stuff for us long time users aswell.

There's an Xinclude leaking through here https://github.com/sjvermeu/Linux-Sea/commit/9f5e53e93adeedc5380f684196e4bed74a3753b3 Wrong relative path causes the XSL to include it literally I'd imagine.

There seems to be a typo in Chapter 6, under Priority and Niceness.
Quote:
The value, in the range of -20 to 10, informs the Linux kernel about how nice the program should be towards the rest of the system.
