Extra info for CentOS Bible

Sample text

These background processes are referred to as daemons. ■ Hardware Support — You can configure support for almost every type of hardware that can be connected to a computer. There is support for floppy disk drives, CD-ROMs, removable disks (such as DVDs and USB flash drives), sound cards, tape devices, video cards, and most anything else you can think of. As device interfaces, such as USB and FireWire, have been added to computers, support for those devices has been added to Linux as well. For Linux to support a hardware device, Linux needs a driver, a piece of software that interfaces between the Linux kernel and the device.

If you choose to upgrade, you can save yourself some time (and disk space) by removing software packages that you don’t need. An upgrade will just skip packages that are not installed and not try to upgrade them. Here are a few other tips related to upgrades: ■ Conflicting Packages — If you upgrade a system on which you installed packages from sources outside of the CentOS Project that conflict with CentOS packages, those features may no longer work. For example, if you replaced GNOME with Ximian GNOME or used a third-party KDE package set, you can’t upgrade those packages to CentOS 5.

Because you can get the source code, you are free to change any part of the Linux system, along with any Open Source software that comes with it, in any way that you choose. Unlike many self-contained commercial products, Open Source software tends to be built in pieces that are meant to interact with other pieces, so you are free to mix and match components to suit your tastes. As I mentioned earlier, Linux is a culture that encourages interoperability. For example, if you don’t like a window manager, you can plug in a different one because so many were built to operate within the same framework.
