At one point, the tutorials were meant to be more of a course instead of a bunch of tutorials.. you can just read through all of them in beginner, then intermediate, then advanced. They don't cover everything, but should get you a good understanding of most things.

The link @arochester put is another good read.

Yeah, i think that was in one of our earlier versions of it when we were using different software for the tutorials.. I do need to get on it and make up a little index or table of contents of sorts.

What is the best command to use in order to scroll through syslog files?
If you're looking for specific information, you can cat the syslog file and grep for your pattern..

like:
Code:
cat /var/log/syslog | grep xxxx

cat /var/log/syslog | grep xxxx

Or more efficiently, just use grep on its own:
Code:
grep xxxx /var/log/syslog

Sorry - seeing as this thread was in the recently edited posts, I figured I'd be pedantic and point that out! :)
I've probably used cat and grep in a few posts here, but there is really no need. Why cat and grep when you can simply grep?!

Thanks,
I'm new to Linux, and had to try a few releases before landing on Kubuntu 19.04.
The easiest to use...I gotta' get more coffee.
Thanks again.

If you want to get into programming - just install any distro and start learning. It really doesn't matter which distro you use. All of the programming tools you need will be in your chosen distros software repositories. If you install a distro with a large software selection - like anything Debian-based, or Fedora-based, or perhaps even Arch-based - you're pretty much guaranteed to have everything you need available to you. But even distros with a more limited selection of software will still have a wide range of developer tools available.

And if you aren't completely ready to ditch Windows yet, you can always dual-boot with windows. But there is no need to have multiple Linux distros installed.

Take a look at the following screenshot, of the front page of "Getting Started"

Start Thread on Which Linux To Download/Use here

The above page is where I provided the links above.

Where my mouse cursor is hovering it has turned into a hand with a pointing finger. Click there.

Then go to the following link

https://www.linux.org/forums/general-linux.143/

Start Thread on Which Linux Books/Guides to Read here

You will get the help you need by doing things this way, and not posting at what is a tutorial.

I hope this is clear, I do not know how to put it any clearer. And yes, put in that attachment with your specs, in the Getting Started thread.

Thank you
