the ARK

What is the ARK?

It is an acronym from:  Advanced Resources and Knowledge

and is designed to deliver accurate information about openSUSE Linux System Administration topics.

The ARK project came to life as it’s author decided to transform his old website dedicated to his writings, into his “notebook” of Linux System Administration solutions while preparing for (inter)national certification. He decided to use openSUSE as his “test bed” just because SUSE Linux was the very first Linux distribution he ever used, and it will remain his “love” forever. This website would not have been possible without the help of dozens resources available online and on paper. Thus the author would like to thank all the dedicated and talented individuals who are spreading the knowledge about Linux and its different distributions.

As the aim of this website is to produce solutions using the openSUSE Linux, the author would like to thank the vibrant openSUSE community for their wonderful work on this stable, secure and professional Linux distribution.

Just for fun. Some old stuff to take a break from openSUSE.
