(The Linux Survival Guide)
This guide takes the approach of a traveler's survival companion and
its sole purpose is to illustrate, show and inform new CCRMA users
and visitors about computer resources and the Linux environment and
applications which might be helpful for doing scientific research
and compositional work at CCRMA. It also briefly describes the
meaning of Open Source as a part of the laboratory and community
philosophy here at CCRMA. Following is a brief history of hardware
at CCRMA and descriptions of Linux as an operating system, the Unix
environment, useful shell commands and many X windows, Gnome and KDE
applications. In the applications section there will be useful
descriptions of programs and information provided by developers'
documentation but do not discard some of the tricks and options as
to our knowledge we present to the reader in some of these
sections. If additional information is required in the case of a
particular command, program or application, the reader is encouraged
to look for more in-depth information on the Unix manual pages, on
the web or in the links to home pages which are also provided
here. Furthermore, there is some effort in several sections, to
present solutions to common problems or challenges the system
presents to the common user, beware of them.
