02:27 eythian jcamins: that's a fairly broad query, any specifics?
02:27 eythian jcamins: eg, desktop, server, development, command line, etc.
02:32 jcamins eythian: server, primarily. I have a junior developer who is interested in learning a bit about system administration.
02:34 eythian I haven't looked at it deeply myself, but this might be a good start:
02:35 jcamins She's never been exposed to a *nix, other than OS X, and doesn't have much experience with the command line.
02:36 eythian hmm, so depending on how she likes working from reference material, it might be good to use that second, after finding a nice intro to the command line type tutorial
02:37 eythian[…]/commandline.html <-- slightly facetiously :)
02:38 jcamins Heh.
02:38 eythian (though, if she likes tech history stuff, a good read.)
02:39 eythian otherwise, you can probably find some good tutorials with plain old google.
02:39 eythian <-- eg
02:40 jcamins Yeah, I'm finding there are so many options I don't know where to start.
02:40 eythian I'd pick a few, skim read them, and see which you like the best.
02:40 eythian I'd avoid the blog post style, 50% of the time they seem to be 25% lies.
02:41 eythian but the book format ones strike me as better in general.
02:41 eythian and then, once the command line makes sense, the debian admin handbook :)
02:41 jcamins Yeah, that was my plan if no one had particular suggestions.
02:41 jcamins Makes sense.
02:42 eythian After that, it's really just remembering that thing you read about 3 years ago, and that just comes with having read things 3 years ago.
02:42 jcamins Right.
02:43 eythian also, doing everything the crappy way the first time so you can do it better the next time, as I'm discovering as I try to move services off a server approaching its 10th birthday...
02:44 jcamins lol
02:45 * jcamins doesn't have to wait ten years to regret things.
02:46 jcamins It only takes a year to look back and go "what was I thinking when I configured this computer?"
02:47 eythian heh
02:51 eythian what I should be doing with the new ones is building them with ansible, but I'm not.
02:51 jcamins That's what I've started doing.
02:51 jcamins It's great.
02:52 eythian I need to get around to learning it
02:59 * eythian notes that a dist-upgrade to wheezy wants to remove koha-common
03:00 eythian It doesn't seem to be critical though, putting a hold on it doesn't appear to cause issues.
03:01 eythian good thing I was following the upgrade documentation closely, including its "just to be sure, run this and review" steps.
03:13 eythian ah, I see why that happened. It does cause minor upgrade breakage with mysql-5.1 -> mysql-5.5
03:50 eythian OK, first server upgraded and rebooted and it's happy. That's good.
03:53 eythian rocio_afk was temporarily in the AFL. Such a short career.
