Finding additional Debian resources
For those new to Debian, there is an comprehensive and free handbook available online
called The Debian Administrator's Handbook by Raphaƫl Hertzog and Roland Mas ,
Freexian SARL , 2014 , at http://debian-handbook.info/browse/stable/ . At a minimum, you
should read Chapter 6, Maintenance and Updates: The APT Tools , of this topic, which de-
tails how to use the apt set of tools for package management. There is also a free class
offered by the Linux Foundation and edX called Introduction to Linux ( ht-
tps://www.edx.org/course/linuxfoundationx/linuxfoundationx-lfs101x-introduction-1621 ) .
The class is fairly recent and it does not appear to use the Debian distribution, but it does
seem like a representative course on generic Linux information. Lastly, there are several
Debian IRC channels on the OFTC IRC network. Most of the channels start with #debi-
an and you should be able to ask specific questions there. The BeagleBoard channel is
#beagle on Freenode , and there will be people there who can help answer your ques-
tions as well.
