HASH(0x90cbf0a8) étoiles sur 5 Thank goodness for Michael Lucas and FreeBSD 20 décembre 2007
Par Richard Bejtlich - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Almost five years ago I reviewed Absolute BSD, Michael Lucas' first book on FreeBSD. I gave that book five stars, back when several other BSD books provided competition. On the eve of 2008, I am happy to say that Michael Lucas is probably the best system administration author I've read. I am amazed that he can communicate top-notch content with a sense of humor, while not offending the reader or sounding stupid. When was the last time you could physically feel yourself getting smarter while reading a book? If you are a beginning to average FreeBSD user, Absolute FreeBSD 2nd Ed (AF2E) will deliver that sensation in spades. Even more advanced users will find plenty to enjoy.

One of the best aspects of AF2E is that it is modern and covers FreeBSD 7.x. The previous edition covered 4.x, and plenty has changed since then. I've used FreeBSD regularly since 4.1.1 (Aug 2000), and AF2E taught me a lot about my favorite OS. Michael's coverage of GEOM, NanoBSD, FreeSBIE, journaling, memory file systems, filesystems in a file, and other topics really opened my eyes. Michael delivers excellent line-by-line explanations of system output, using numbered references to guide the reader.

Another major reason I love AF2E is that it is a good system administration book that covers plenty of FreeBSD nuances. Michael shares many of his experiences running FreeBSD in production, and I always believe he is teaching the reader what he or she needs to use FreeBSD to support customers. For example, I liked the hint on p 221 about disabling hard drive write caching (hw.ata.wc=0 in /boot/loader.conf). I also liked hearing about netstat -m to see kernel memory used for networking.

The book is also very lively for a system administration title. One of my favorite lines appears on p 135:

"Ethernet has many device-like characteristics, and it's simplest for FreeBSD to treat it as a device. Leave this [kernel option alone], unless you're looking for a learning opportunity."

So far AF2E has received all positive reviews, but I'm sure there's some deficiency another reader will report. In an ideal world I would have read more on FreeBSD binary updates, especially those involving minor releases (say 6.2 to 6.3) and major releases (say 6.2 to 7.0). Those developments are too recent to have appeared in the book, but they appear in 7.0 and will provide exceptional power for many users. I think enough completely FreeBSD-specific chapters (performance tuning, /etc, and others) are present that it's easy to say this is an awesome FreeBSD book.

If you want more coverage of Pf (and found AF2E's material lacking), just buy a copy of the new title The Book of PF: A No-Nonsense Guide to the OpenBSD Firewall by Peter Hansteen. If you want more detail on installing certain applications on FreeBSD, buy Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 by Bryan Hong. Kudos to No Starch for publishing AF2E and these other BSD titles.

HASH(0x90a48870) étoiles sur 5 Best FreeBSD book out there. 29 novembre 2007
Par Lisandro Grullon - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have been a freebsd user for a little over 3 years in a real network environment with over 1000+ nodes at my facility. At first the handbook seems like a very complicated compilation of how-to's from different individuals, a class mate ask me to grab a copy of Absolute FreeBSD by Michael W.Lucas. I got online and this book was just coming out, so I decided to give a try, after reading half of the book, I have to say that Michael Lucas is an excellent writer; he describes in a very chronological/concise manner using graphics and commands the necessary steps to install, secure and make a useful system out of FreeBSD. Many of us are waiting for the 7.x release, he also cover the material in that upcoming release or at least part of it.

I am really exited about this book, I will be purchasing the OpenPGP book that Michael Lucas also published, as I said he is a great writer and if you want to learn FreeBSD without going through the nuts and bolds of the handbook this is the best source that will teach you step by step this great Operating System.

If you want to learn FreeBSD from in to out, get this book. Period.

HASH(0x90a46840) étoiles sur 5 Great FREEBSD Reference 29 janvier 2008
Par Dan McKinnon - Publié sur
Format: Broché
'Absolute FreeBSD: The Complete Guide to FreeBSD' is another hit in the No Starch collection of books which have their own unique layout and style of writing associated with the authors publishing with them. With around 700 pages of content you will learn the ins and outs of this Unix-like operating system and see how powerful it is and what it can do for you. If you use FREEBSD on the job or are just a tinkerer that plays with non Windows/Mac systems this will enable you do do administration, learn to programmatically script, and get behind the curtain to do more than you thought possible! If you need a FREEBSD book, No Starch makes learning FUN and it's a great addition to your library!

HASH(0x91325a98) étoiles sur 5 Nice and updated. Much better than I expected. 20 mars 2008
Par L. Garcia - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am a big fan of open source software. I've been a GNU/Linux user for years but I must admit I had never played with BSD before. I bought this book because I wanted to set up a network server at home and I thought it was the perfect occasion to try FreeBSD. I expected one of those thick and boring reference books but, hey! I am very glad I chose "Absolute FreeBSD" because it is the perfect example of how write a clear, informative, nice and accurate technical book. The book is not for the absolute beginner but, in general, it's very easy to read. It should be self-explanatory to anyone with a little experience in networking, UNIX-like systems or, in general, computer science.

The author is a FreeBSD developer himself, so he talks about the inner workings of the FreeBSD community, providing an interesting point of view of the operating system, not only as a regular user but also as one of its "insiders".

The book covers everything a BSD system administrator should know. It covers basic things like how to install the system, how to make backups and recover from data loss, how to configure the network, disk management, etc. It also includes detailed explanations and sysadmin tricks of the usual network services: DNS, SSH, DHCP, FTP, printing server, web Server, mail Server... The author also gets into more advanced topics like, kernel tunning, security, performance analysis and tunning or RAID management. I was particularly interested in using hard disk encryption. I thought getting it was going to be a pain in the neck but the book explains how to do it with 6 simple commands. Nice!

In general the book is well structured. Concepts are explained clearly and with a lot of examples. Some chapters cover so many concepts that my brain couldn't keep up with so much information and I had to take a break for a nice beer ;-) The book is worth it's price: 37 dollars for 700 pages.

Only one advice: Although it has a graphical interface, FreeBSD is normally configured trough the good old command-line. Don't expect this book to tell you how to configure your web server double-clicking on an icon, FreeBSD is not Ubuntu or Win2003. The book may not be suitable for Happy Windows Users, used too the click-next click-next click-next way. This book is for computer geeks, system administrators, people that enjoy using different operating systems, people that need to have a robust system to use as a network server, people that like to tune every detail of their machines, or people that need to learn freeBSD and have no time to google every single configuration detail. For any of those people, I highly recommend this book.

HASH(0x91114fc0) étoiles sur 5 Many topics too out of date, too much time spent off-topic 3 février 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Not sure tapes drives (for backups) need to be covered anymore, would have preferred more detail about what files/dirs outside /home are most important to backup. The chapter on printing is a joke, lpr is briefly covered, but no CUPS, filters, printing pdf and images, inkjets, color, etc. Printing from BSD is still in the dark ages compared to Windows, I really needed more printing info. Waaaay too much time is spent on Apache. If I want Apache info I'll buy an Apache book. Same with Sendmail. The time spent on Apache should have been devoted to printing. I don't mine if the author wants to add off-topic info, I'll skip those chapters. But I feel he's added non FreeBSD info at the expense of FreeBSD topics. There's no significant coverage of GPT, gpart, or ZFS. Too much time on fdisk, GPT is more useful now. No info on SSD's, they need to be used differently (4K blocks, TRIM). Too much time on fringe GEOM features. Reading the FreeBSD Handbook is a much better intro and value.
