Product Overview

From the Publisher:
Yes, Linux has many annoying traits, despite all the hype to

the contrary. You'll find out quickly when you're asked to standardize

the organization's Linux desktops or install a boot password on a server. With this book, you won't be caught unprepared. Many of the solutions in Linux Annoyances for Geeks come from author Michael Jang's decades of experience in system administration and consulting, while others are gleaned from common issues and answers found in online forums and power user web sites. With plenty of material for any Linux user, this book is an essential troubleshooting guide for both desktops and servers.

His book covers three key areas for Linux users:

Desktop management topics include Firefox and OpenOffice

optimization, spam filtering, instant messaging, X Window system

configuration, and much more.

System setup concentrates on optimizing start times for the

OS and applications as well as security

and maintenance issues like installing a new kernel or getting the

latest security patch.

The server configuration section walks the reader through

the difficult issues involved in setting up and administering several types of Linux servers, including file/print, web, and email.
