Yggdrasil's Linux Bible
What I liked.
- Nice to have documentation on paper without spooling postscript files
to a laser printer.
- A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Linux Bible are
used to support the Linux Documentation Project.
- The CDROM is great!
- The CDROM comes with Slackware 2.3.0 included.
- The CDROM includes html manual pages.
- The GNU info pages are on the CDROM in html format (I knew I didn't
want to bother learning how to read info pages!).
- A wais server is launched when the
script is run allowing you to search the entire contents of the CDROM.
- All the original users guides and howto source files are
included on the CDROM.
What I disliked.
- The paper used to print the book is cheap.
- The only page headers in the book are the article page headers.
Given that the entire book is a collection of various articles it is sometimes
difficult to determine which book your in.
- Index appears to be surprisingly sparse (only one reference to the
C-shell, when I found 30 using the wais interface on the CDROM)
and there wasn't any indication of how it was constructed.
