This presentation contains some basic linux commands. I have put screenshots to make it easily understand.
Please send me your comments to Ankit Mehta [email protected] , it will help me to improve future presentations.
Linux is freely available operating system. You can download
any of the distribution from CentOS, Fedora and if you have
very low end system you can go with DSL (Damn Small Linux)
At the beginning level I would suggest you to start installing
and using Linux on virtual machine, once you are comfortable
with operating system you can move to install it as primary or
secondary operating system.
Choosing a login name is Linux should follow
Login name must be more than two characters long
Login name can contain lowercase and numbers
Login name must start with an lower case alphabet
Login name must not conflict with another existing username
Linux password choosing guidelines
Password must have atleast 6 characters (This can be bypassed but
as per the guidelines you must follow it)
Password must contain alphabet, numeric and/or special character.
Password are case sensitive so “Creative” is different than “creative”
Some other guidelines
Avoid using easily guessed password like your family name, your
library card number your pet name.
Avoid using dictionary words
In next presentation I will add some more commands and then
we will work on shell scripting and more from administration
Kindly let me know your reviews and comments so I can
improve future presentations.
