Im studying to get my assoc degree in computer tech and networking. Currently we're working on SLES/SLED10. What I need are some sites that have good information on the various terminal commands. The man pages in Linux are useful but I want something I can use without having to load up a virtual terminal to look at them, or read the course text book that can be a lil ambiguous at times. I also have openSUSE 12.1 and LinuxMint 11 already setup on my virtual box, so I at least have distro's that are more up to date.

Thanks

I can't think why it's a problem to open a terminal to view man pages, but they are available on- line at http://linuxmanpages.com/ .

My laptop runs Win 7, and I run Linux through Oracle Virtual box to get hands on exp with the OS. Having a 1.8GHz Dual Core Celeron doesnt help matters...it's rather slow.

Pretty much any CPU without virtualisation support is dreadfully slow.

And you have a Celeron.

It might be a good idea to dual-boot in that case or run a lightwieght distro like Puppy, if you wish to improve the speed.

Also typing the flag '<command> -help' (or -h or -?) does summon all the options for that command.

eg.

  1. yum -help
