    Looking for a easy tutorial for staff


    Hi All

    Not a newbie myself, but looking to help some newbies I work with.

    I work in operations for a reasonably large company, and many of our systems and field machines are starting to move to linux, mostly command-line only stuff.

    I myself am very knowledgeable with linux, but I have trouble passing this knowledge down the the team, and I don't think we're quite at a point where it's worth getting paid linux courses.

    Does anybody know of any really simple, shortish tutorials, preferably hands-on (I can provide linux environments for them to practice with), that could at least get them comfortable in the shell?
    Unfortunately many of the staff are not all that tech-savy, but I think even some very basic knowledge (like say, how to check logs in field machines) would be great, hopefully taking some workload off the techs who have more important things to do than read logs off some box in the middle of nowhere.

    Thanks all

    Hello and Welcome!

    Give a look at LinuxCommands.org. It's a well laid out page that should help your team pick up on some basic steps.
    Also, The 5-Minute Essential Shell Tutorial - Linux Mint Community. It's worth a look as well.

    A very good tutorial. I am using this manual to learn. I have very little knowledge about command lines, but can follow the tutorial easily, because the instructions are clear and easy to understand.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I especially like the suggestion from ozar, it seems very good for explaining to less tech-savy people, with its diagrams and examples.
    I will pass these on to the staff and see how it goes
