The Debian System

Document Actions
Instead of the regular user's handbook, The Debian System deals exclusively with Debian GNU/Linux and does not cover general topics, such as Linux basics, servers, or desktop environments. Rather, it details the internals of the Debian operating system and provides the reader with all the information needed to successfully administer Debian multi-user systems for years on end. The book is a must-read for the professional user of the Debian system, and an indispensable resource to the migrating Linux/Unix administrator and existing Debian user alike.

Noel Davis, rootprompt.org: Can you imagine a book about Debian GNU/Linux stretching to 600 pages? No, not covering any of the applications that ship with Debian, nor delving into general configuration of, say, X or Samba. Just pure Debian; that is to say, the book covers Debian-specific utilities only, in densely printed pages with hardly any screenshots. Yup, a book like that has just been published under the name of The Debian System - Concept and Techniques. Written by Martin Krafft, this is one of the most comprehensive and detailed accounts of the largest Linux distribution in existence.
