Red Hat Installation through CD
• To boot from a CD-Rom or DVD-Rom, you may first have to change the boot sequence setting in your computer’s BIOS so that the computer will try to boot first from the CD-Rom.

NFS Image
• NFS (Network File Sharing): It is a common method to share files. • An image of an operating system is taken already which is connected remotely to install the image in a system. • The image system is first mounted and

operating system path is given to get into the installation.

Kick Start Installation
• Till now we have seen attended installation, where the user have to interact with the system. • The kick start installation is known as unattended installation where the user appearance is not necessary. • The system will automatically install the operating system into the machine including the device installation, hard disk partition, assigning of ip address etc.,

• Init :

Initial process

• It is the superior of all processes. • As soon as init process is loaded the control is passed from kernel to this process.

• /etc/inittab: • File which contains the information on how init should setup the system in every run level, as well as the run level to use a default.

Run levels
• init 0 : Shutdown the system or halt • init 1 : Single-user mode. • init 2 : Multi-user mode with out networking support. • init 3 : Multi-user mode with networking support. • init 4 : Unused. • init 5 : Graphical user interface. • init 6 : Reboot the system.

CONSOLES
• Text-mode login at virtual console
• Multiple non-GUI logins are possible • Default consoles are in text mode • Available through CTRL-ALT-F[1-6]

• Graphical login
• Graphical console comes through CTRL-ALT-F7

X Window System
• It is the foundation for the graphical user Interface of Red Hat Linux. • X applications communicate with a display via. The X protocol. • X is OS Independent. • It is available on many platforms.

X Protocol
• It hides the individual details of the OS and the underlying hardware.

X

protocol

is

a

asynchronous

network

protocol

for

the

communication between X client and X Server.

• It defines how the graphical primitives are communicated between X client and server.

Multiple Desktop Environments
• The X Window System of Red Hat provides two Desktop Environments. • GNOME (GNU Network Object Modules Environment). • KDE (K desktop Environment).

GNOME
• It is the default desktop environment for Red Hat Linux. • It is Power full and easy-to-use desktop

environment consisting primarily of a panel and a set of GUI tools. • GNOME is free and hence its source code can be downloaded form the GNOME Web Site: www.gnome.org.

GNOME Interface
• The GNOME Interface consists of a Panel and a Desktop. • Panel appears as a long bar across the bottom of screen. • Panel holds Menus, Programs and Applets. • The Remainder Screen is the Desktop. Here you can place directories, files or programs.
