The Debian System by Martin Krafft
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Unlike many Linux distributions, Debian GNU/Linux gives administrators full control, rather than hide details behind graphical tools. In the field of Linux distributions, Debian is like a manual camera (compared with Ubuntu, the automatic camera). Both can take beautiful photos but the manual camera offers users more control and more potential, as long as they know how to use those controls. In the second edition of the highly-acclaimed The Debian System, author Martin Krafft, an experienced Debian developer, explains the workings of the Debian system and shows how to use it. You'll learn how to harness the full power of this robust, scalable, and secure operating system and grow to appreciate how Debian's strict adherence to standards, pragmatism, vision, and a certain degree of academic perfection make it the exceptional system that it is today. This is a fascinating, must-have volume that Unix and Linux administrators will find complements the standard Linux references. Co-published with Open Source Press of Munich, Germany.
