I am playing a bit of getting the cart before the horse. Maybe the wheel before the cart.
Ultimately, my goal is going to be to build a new system (probably going to be threadripper/volta) in the next year or so which I want to be linux based with a handful of VM’s- pretty much exactly what Wendell has shown lately. I play a fair amount of games, do drafting/AutoCAD 3d Modeling, and also work on photo and video editing. I’d like to run a couple of specialized iterations of windows 7 and 10, as well as an android and perhaps steam OS.
I am pretty well versed in windows platforms, but though I have played with a fair number of VM’s in windows, have a pretty poor sense of linux distros. Watching a ton of of KVM material has helped me grasp the ideas behind the PCI passthrough, but I am struggling to get to a point where I could have any intuition with a console, the general framework of a linux install, managing resources, etc. I can follow tutorials, but I would rather have some intuition and deeper knowledge of what I am doing.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can watch some videos going over good fundamentals? I feel like the youtube videos are either “this is a mouse, this is a keyboard” or tutorials that simply list off commands and switches without any context to their function or the abstracts of how the operating system works.
As of now I built a functional Archlinux VM that I am playing with in VMWare, so learning within the context of Archlinux would be great, but frankly if there are better resources relating to Ubuntu or Debian or anything else, I am wide open. I think I need to start with the core of linux.
Sorry for the long winded first post. Thanks for reading, and hello!
