Open-source software (OSS) is computer software that is available in source

code form for which the source code and certain other rights normally reserved for
copyright holders are provided under a software license that permits users to study,
change, and improve the software. Open source licenses meet the requirements of
the Open Source Definition. Some open source software is available within the
public domain. Open source software is very often developed in a public,
collaborative manner. Open-source software is the most prominent example of
open-source development and often compared to (technically defined) user-
generated content or (legally defined) open content movements. The term open-
source software originated as part of a marketing campaign for free software.

Popular distributions:

Well-known Linux distributions include:

 CentOS, a distribution derived from the same sources used by Red Hat,
maintained by a dedicated volunteer community of developers with both
100% Red Hat-compatible versions and an upgraded version that is not
always 100% upstream compatible
 Debian, a non-commercial distribution maintained by a volunteer developer
community with a strong commitment to free software principles
 Fedora, a community distribution sponsored by Red Hat

Linux refers to the family of Unix-like computer operating systems using the
Linux kernel. Linux can be installed on a wide variety of computer hardware,
ranging from mobile phones, tablet computers and video game consoles, to
mainframes and supercomputers. Linux is a leading server operating system, and
runs the 10 fastest supercomputers in the world. Use of Linux by end-users or
consumers has increased in recent years, partly owing to the popular Ubuntu,
Fedora, and openSUSE distributions and the emergence of netbooks with pre-
installed Linux systems and smartphones running embedded Linux.

The development of Linux is one of the most prominent examples of free and open
source software collaboration; typically all the underlying source code can be used,
freely modified, and redistributed, both commercially and non-commercially, by
anyone under licenses such as the GNU General Public License. Typically Linux is
packaged in a format known as a Linux distribution for desktop and server use.
Linux distributions include the Linux kernel and all of the supporting software
required to run a complete system, such as utilities and libraries, the X Window
System, the GNOME and KDE desktop environments, and the Apache HTTP
Server. Commonly used applications with desktop Linux systems include the
Mozilla Firefox web-browser, the office application suite and the
GIMP image editor.

The name "Linux" comes from the Linux kernel, originally written in 1991 by
Linus Torvalds. The main supporting user space system tools and libraries from
the GNU Project (announced in 1983 by Richard Stallman) are the basis for the
Free Software Foundation's preferred name GNU/Linux.


Fedora is an RPM-based, general purpose collection of software including an

operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-
supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat. The Fedora Project's mission
is to lead the advancement of free and open source software and content as a
collaborative community.

One of Fedora's main objectives is not only to contain software distributed under a
free and open source license, but also to be on the leading edge of such
technologies. Fedora developers prefer to make upstream changes instead of
applying fixes specifically for Fedora—this ensures that their updates are available
to all Linux distributions. In 2008, Linus Torvalds, author of the Linux kernel,
started that he used Fedora because it had fairly good support for the PowerPC
processor architecture which he favored at the time.

Fedora Features

There are some really neat, new features in Fedora that do work well. they're going
to be more exiting for system administrators and developers than they are someone
just running Fedora at home.

Easily the most important of these is the arrival of of Simple Protocol for
Independent Computing Environment (SPICE). This is a desktop presentation

service protocol, like Microsoft's RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and Citrix's
ICA (Independent Computing Architecture), that you use to run thin-client

SPICE will let you support remote desktops from a Fedora server, and eventually a
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) server. Each remote desktop will run as a
Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM).

SPICE is being very useful in schools or anywhere that needs centralized control
or inexpensive desktops. It may prove a new and interesting way to get users on a
Linux "desktop."

Fedora also includes a new interface: MeeGo. This is the interface for the MeeGo
operating system, which is meant for netbooks, Mobile Internet Devices (MID)
and embedded devices. While not as well known or as mature as Android, MeeGo
shows great promise. By making it available on Fedora, developers can develop
applications for MeeGo.

Package Kit, the default package manager front-end on Fedora

The Fedora Project distributes Fedora in several different ways:

 Fedora DVD/CD set – a DVD or CD set of all major Fedora packages at

time of shipping;
 Live images – CD or DVD sized images that can be used to create a Live
CD or boot from a USB flash drive and optionally install to a hard disk;
 Minimal CD – used for installing over HTTP, FTP or NFS.

The Fedora Project also distributes custom variations of Fedora which are called
Fedora spins. These are built from a specific set of software packages and have a
combination of software to meet the requirements of a specific kind of end user.
Fedora spins are developed by several Fedora special interest groups. It is also
possible to create Live USB versions of Fedora using Fedora Live USB creator.

Fedora Core:

Fedora Core 1 was the first version of Fedora and was released on November 6,
2003. It was codenamed Yarrow. Fedora Core 1 was based on Red Hat Linux 9
and shipped with version 2.4.19 of the Linux kernel, version 2.4 of the GNOME
desktop environment, and K Desktop Environment 3.1.

Fedora Core 2 was released on May 18, 2004, codenamed Tettnang. It shipped
with Linux 2.6, GNOME 2.6, KDE 3.2, and SELinux. XFree86 was replaced by
the newer, a merger of the previous official X11R6 release, which
additionally included a number of updates to Xrender, Xft, Xcursor, fontconfig
libraries, and other significant improvements.

Fedora Core 3 was released on November 8, 2004, codenamed Heidelberg. This

was the first release of Fedora Core to include the Mozilla Firefox web browser, as
well as support for the Indic languages. Fedora Core 3 shipped with GNOME 2.8
and KDE 3.3. It was the first release to include the new Fedora Extras repository.

Fedora Core 4 was released on June 13, 2005, with the codename Stentz. It
shipped with Linux 2.6.11, KDE 3.4 and GNOME 2.10. This version introduced
the new Clearlooks theme. It also shipped with the 2.0 office suite,
as well as Xen, a high performance and secure open source virtualization

Fedora Core 5 was released on March 20, 2006, with the codename Bordeaux, and
introduced the Fedora Bubbles artwork.It was the first Fedora release to include
Mono and tools built with it such as Beagle, F-Spot and Tomboy. It also
introduced new package management tools such as pup and pirut (see Yellowdog
Updater, Modified).

Fedora Core 6 was released on October 24, 2006, codenamed Zod. This release
introduced the Fedora DNA artwork, replacing the Fedora Bubbles artwork used in
Fedora Core 5. This version introduced support for the Compiz compositing
window manager and AIGLX.

Fedora 7, codenamed Moonshine, was released on May 31, 2007. The biggest
difference between Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7 was the merging of the Red Hat
"Core" and Community "Extras" repositories, and the new build system put in
place to manage those packages.

Fedora 7 featured GNOME 2.18 and KDE 3.5, a new theme entitled Flying High, 2.2 and Firefox 2.0. Fast user switching was fully integrated and
enabled by default. Also, there were a number of updates to SELinux.

Fedora 8, codenamed Werewolf, was released on November 8, 2007.

Some of the new features and updates in Fedora 8 included:

 PulseAudio  IcedTea
 system-config-firewall NetworkManager
 Codeina  Better laptop support

Fedora 8 also included a new desktop artwork entitled Infinity, and a new
desktop theme called Nodoka. A unique feature of Infinity is that the
wallpaper can change during the day to reflect the time of day.

Fedora 9, codenamed Sulphur, was released on May 13, 2008.

Some of the new features of Fedora 9 included:

 GNOME 2.22.
 KDE 4.0, which is the default interface as part of the KDE spin.

Fedora 11, codenamed Leonidas, was released on June 9, 2009. This was the
first release whose artwork is determined by the name instead of by
users voting on themes.

Some of the features in Fedora 11 are:

 ext4 as the default file system

 GCC 4.4
 GNOME 2.26
 KDE 4.2 (KDE Spin)
 2.6.29 Linux kernel

Fedora 13, codenamed Goddard, was released on May 25, 2010. During
early development, Fedora project-leader Paul Frields anticipated "looking
at the fit and finish issues. We have tended to build a really tight ship with
Fedora, but now we want to make the décor in the cabins a little more
sumptuous and to polish the deck chairs and railings."

Features of Fedora 13 include:

 Automatic printer-driver & Automatic language pack installation

 Redesigned user-account tool
 A new way to install Fedora over the Internet
 Updates to NFS
 Inclusion of Zarafa Open Source edition

The Apache Web server is arguably the most popular Web server in use on
the Internet today. Here are some of the reasons why Apache is so popular;
you don't have to be running Windows to run Apache. It was developed on
various Unix/Linux/BSD platforms, and then recently ported to Win32.
Internet Information Server, a Web server made by Microsoft for the
Windows NT platform, is made for use in the "Windows-only" world. While
IIS has many features, it’s lack of portability limits it’s market share.
Another reason for Apache's widespread acceptance is its overall stability.
While you can slow down an Apache Web server, you can rarely, if ever,
kill one. The Apache Web server service is near bulletproof. Lastly, it's
relatively fast. I say "relatively" as it's relative to what you're doing with it.
If you're hosting a pretty plain Web site with mostly static content, Apache
is a fireball. If you throw tons of CGI scripts at it, while making database
calls at the same time, you're going to slow it down. Though much of the
slowdown will come from your scripts themselves, and not from Apache.
Apache evolved out of the NCSA https project to its current status as one of
the fastest, most efficient, and most functional web servers in existence

Apache has been shown to be substantially faster, more stable, and more
feature-full than many other web servers. Although certain commercial

servers have claimed to surpass Apache's speed (it has not been
demonstrated that any of these "benchmarks" are a good way of

measuring WWW server speed at any rate). The developers of Apache feel
that it is better to have a mostly-fast free server than an extremely fast server
that costs thousands of dollars. Apache is run on sites that get millions of
hits per day, and they have experienced no performance difficulties. Apache
is run on over 10 million Internet servers (as of May 2002). It has been
tested thoroughly by both developers and users. The Apache Group
maintains rigorous standards before releasing new versions of their server,
and their server runs without problems on over one half of all WWW servers
available on the Internet. When bugs do show up, they release patches and
new versions as soon as they are available.

Installation Options

I’ll cover three methods of installing Apache under Linux. The three
methods are:
·Binary installation
·Using an RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) – recommended for
people running Red Hat Linux
·Building from source

Apache Installation Guide

We recommend using the RPM installation method. This is the easiest way
to install Apache for people that are new to Linux.

Download the Software
You can download Apache from the Apache Software Foundation web site
located at, in source and binary forms. While your
downloading Apache, you may
want to browse over the documentation.

What you need

To install Apache, you will need the following things:

1. A computer running Linux
2. Root access on this computer
3. For binary and source installations, the tar and gunzip Unix utilities

Binary Installation
A binary is pre-configured, which means someone else has gone to the
trouble of configuring and building the software for you. There are,
however, a few things you should keep in mind:

1. Binaries are compiled for a particular operating system. In other words,

you must use a binary built specifically for FreeBSD on your FreeBSD
machine and a Linux binary on your Linux machine. You need to be sure to

grab the correct binary; if you don't see a binary for your particular operating
system, you must choose a different method of installation.

2. Apache binaries are usually a version or two behind the current source
distribution. This means you don't reap the benefits of the latest bug fixes
and feature enhancements.

3. Because binaries are pre-configured, you don't have much opportunity to

alter the way the software works. If you're a newcomer, you may not care
about this loss of flexibility. Fortunately most Apache binaries include a full
source distribution, providing you with the best of both worlds -- play now,
learn later.

Now let's install a binary. Point your browser at
and download the binary for your operating system (in our case, Linux).
You'll most likely be presented with a directory containing multiple versions
of Apache in various compressed forms. For the purposes of this guide, I'll
assume you've downloaded the gzip'd form of the latest 2.0.x Apache binary
(currently that's httpd-2.0.35-i686-pc-linux-rh72.tar.gz). If there is a
README associated with the file you're downloading, you may want to
review it for any interesting installation tidbits or possible bugs.

If you can't find a binary for your operating system, choose either the RPM
Installation (if you are running Red Hat Linux) or Build from Source
method. Now let's uncompress the archive using the handy combination of

gunzip and tar. You should replace the "httpd-2.0.35-i686-pc-linux-
rh72.tar.gz" text below with the name of the
gzip'd file you downloaded.
gunzip < httpd-2.0.35-i686-pc-linux-rh72.tar.gz | tar xvf –
Some of you may be lucky enough to have a version of tar that is capable of
taking care of both tasks.

tar xvzf httpd-2.0.35-i686-pc-linux-rh72.tar.gz

Either way, you should end up with an httpd-2.0.x directory, with x being
the particular subversion of Apache you downloaded. Move into the newly
created directory.

cd httpd-2.0.x

As of Apache 1.3.11, binary distributions contain an install script called If your binary does not seem to contain such an install
script, take a look at the README.bindist and/or INSTALL.bindist
documents for further information; if these documents don't outline a simple
installation method, you'll probably want to use one of the other methods I
cover in this guide.
If you've not already done so, you'll need to become root. You can become
root by typing su, then the root password. Then go ahead and run the install


This command should install the various bits of the Apache distribution into
the appropriate locations; the default is usually to install everything under
/usr/local/apache (confirm this by consulting your README.bindist and/or
INSTALL.bindist documents). That's all there is to it on installing binaries.

RPM Installation
Those of you running Red Hat Linux may want to take advantage of
Red Hat's RPM ("RedHat Package Manager") system. Almost identical to a
binary, an RPM is further customized to play nicely with other RPMs and
provide a consistent interface to installing, updating, and removing binaries.
For Linux newcomers or when installing a small standard component, RPMs
are simple and reliable. Bear in mind that an Apache RPM may already be
installed on your system depending on how Linux was originally installed
on your computer. To find out, at the shell prompt, type:

rpm -qa | grep apache

If you see something like apache-1.3.9xxx, an Apache RPM has already

been installed. You can also type that command typing httpd instead of
apache to see if it’s installed. If you don't have an Apache RPM, you must
obtain one. Red Hat 7.3 ships apache-1.3.23- 11.src.rpm in the
RedHat/RPMS directory on the installation CD. Or, point your browser at and
download it. If you've not already done so, you'll need to become root.
Navigate to the same directory as the .rpm file you obtained, and then type
the following command, substituting the name of the .rpm you're using for
example: apache-1.3.23-11.src.rpm.

rpm -ivh apache-1.3.23-11.src.rpm
RPM should grind away, displaying its progress with a primitive #######
progress bar. Barring any errors, you're done.

Build from Source

Building Apache from source may seem like a daunting task to newcomers,
but the Apache developers have done a wonderful job of making the task
about as simple as could be. Just three more commands than a binary
installation and you skip the arduous task of figuring out which binary is the
right one for your particular operating system. Point your browser at and download the gzip'd form of the
current version of Apache (2.0.36 at the time of this writing). Now let's
uncompress that archive using gunzip and tar. You should replace the httpd-
2.0.36.tar.gz below with the name of the gzip'd file you downloaded.

gunzip < httpd-2.0.36.tar.gz | tar xvf –

You should end up with an httpd-2.0.x directory, x being the particular sub-
version of Apache you downloaded. Move into the newly created directory.

cd httpd-2.0.x

Now we'll use the the configure and make commands to configure, make,
and install Apache. If you've not already done so, now would be the time to
become root.


Your screen should look something like:

# ./configure
checking for chosen layout... Apache
checking for working mkdir -p... yes
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configuring Apache Portable Runtime library ...
config.status: executing default commands
Unless errors were reported (not warnings), your Apache installation is now
configured and we can move on. This is where things get a bit ugly.
Make'ing Apache produces screenfulls of output.
Your screen should look something like:
# make
Making all in srclib
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/ryan/dl/apache_guide/httpd-
Making all in apr
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ryan/dl/apache_guide/httpd-

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ryan/dl/apache_guide/httpd-2.0.36'#

Finally, you're ready to install your Apache build.

# make install
Now Apache is installed.

Starting Apache
Let's take your new Apache installation out for a spin.
If you installed Apache using a binary or from scratch, as root, type:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

If you used an RPM, as root, type:

/sbin/service httpd start

Point your browser at your brand new Web server, http://localhost/. If

everything worked you should see the default home page.

Apache uses some rather easy to understand text files for configuration. On
a Red Hat system,you'll find them in /etc/httpd/conf. Quite a few Linux
distributions place them in this same place, but if you can't find such a
directory, do a search for "httpd.conf". Once you find these, you've
found the main config files. If you're new to Linux, and need help finding
this file, here's how you can find it.

1.Login as root
2.Type: cd /
3.Type: find -name httpd.conf

Now you should see where the file is located. When you move into the
directory containing
httpd.conf, you should see these three files:
·httpd.conf – This has the settings for the overall configuration for the
·access.conf – This file contains all the security settings for Apache.
·srm.conf – This file contains the MIME definitions and default document
names for files on the server.

Restarting Apache

Whevever you make changes to the server configuration files, such as

httpd.conf, they won't take effect until the server is restarted. In Linux,
Apache can be restarted depending on how you installed it. If you installed
Apache using a binary or from scratch, as root, type:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

If you used an RPM, as root, type:

/sbin/service httpd start

After being restarted the changes will have taken effect.

$newfile = "file2.txt";
copy($filetobecopied, $newfile) or die "File cannot be copied.";
print "\n Now open the new file";
print "\n Move function";

$oldlocation = "sample.txt";
$newlocation = "f:/keerthi/sample.txt";
move($oldlocation, $newlocation);
# unlink function to delete specific files from your web server.
print "\n Delete function";
$file = "F:/keerthi/sample.txt";
if (unlink($file) == 0)
print "\nFile deleted successfully.";
print "\nFile was not deleted.";


1.create the table in perl that will be automatically updated in

database using mysql

1.1 First create the database as follows in mysql

[linuxpert@localhost ~]$ mysql -u root -p

Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 2
Server version: 5.1.45 Source distribution

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

mysql> show databases;

| Database |
| information_schema |
| mysql |
| test |

3 rows in set (0.25 sec)

mysql> create database student;

Query OK, 1 row affected (0.02 sec)

mysql> show databases;

| Database |
| information_schema |
| mysql |
| student |
| test |
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> use student;

Database changed
mysql> connect;
Connection id: 3
Current database: student

mysql> show tables;

Empty set (0.00 sec)

now the table is empty . To create the table we use the following procedure

1.2 The following packages should be used to connect PERL with Mysql
(use new terminal)

[linuxpert@localhost ~]$ rpm -q perl-DBI


[linuxpert@localhost ~]$ rpm -q perl-DBD-MySQL


1.3 Write the PERL script to connect with mysql as follows

use DBI; #to use the build in package we use "Use", DBI is the build in
package in perl
my $dbh=DBI->connect("dbi:mysql:student","root",""); #connect to
$sth=$dbh->prepare("create table students(rollno int,sname varchar(50))");
# create the table


1.4 Run the Perl script

[linuxpert@localhost ~]$ perl

now see the tables in database (“student”)

mysql> show tables;

| Tables_in_student |
| students |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

2. insert the values in perl that will be automatically updated in

database using mysql as follows

use DBI; #to use the build in package we use "Use", DBI is the build in
package in perl
my $dbh=DBI->connect("dbi:mysql:student","root",""); #connect to

$sth=$dbh->prepare("insert into students values(100,'thamarai')"); # create
the table

2.1 compile the perl

[linuxpert@localhost ~]$ perl

now the output is

mysql> select * from students;

| rollno | sname |
| 100 | thamarai |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

2.2 insert the values in perl using execute statement

use DBI; #to use the build in package we use "Use", DBI is the build in
package in perl

my $dbh=DBI->connect("dbi:mysql:student","root",""); #connect to
$sth=$dbh->prepare("insert into students values(?,?)"); # create the table

compile the program as

[linuxpert@localhost ~]$ perl

now the output is

mysql> select * from students;

| rollno | sname |
| 100 | thamarai |
| 200 | selvi |
2 rows in set (0.08 sec)

save that file as form2.cgi

close that file & open a same terminal type as

NETWORK SIMULATOR-2 is designed to run from on most UNIX

based operating systems.Ns is a discrete event simulator targeted at
networking research. Ns provides substantial support for simulation of TCP,
routing, and multicast protocols over wired and wireless (local and satellite)

Download a copy of ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz. Then from the command

prompt there, execute the following:

tar -xzf ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz
cd ns-allinone-2.34

(If this fails, try the Distribution Specific instructions)

After a long wait and a whole lot of text, you should see the installation
finish up with text like the following:

Nam has been installed successfully.

Ns-allinone package has been installed successfully.
Here are the installation places:
tcl8.4.11: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/{bin,include,lib}
tk8.4.11: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/{bin,include,lib}
otcl: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/otcl-1.11
tclcl: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/tclcl-1.17
ns: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/ns-2.29/ns
nam: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/nam-1.11/nam
xgraph: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/xgraph-12.1
gt-itm: /home/pcraven/ns-allinone-2.29/itm, edriver, sgb2alt, sgb2ns,
sgb2comns, sgb2hierns

Please put /home/myusername/ns-allinone-

into your PATH environment; so that you'll be able to run


(1) You MUST put /home/myusername/ns-allinone-2.29/otcl-1.11,

into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
If it complains about X libraries, add path to your X libraries

If you are using csh, you can set it like:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH <paths>
If you are using sh, you can set it like:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<paths>

(2) You MUST put /home/myusername/ns-allinone-2.29/tcl8.4.11/library

into your TCL_LIBRARY environmental
variable. Otherwise ns/nam will complain during startup.

(3) [OPTIONAL] To save disk space, you can now delete directories
and tk8.4.11. They are now installed under /home/myusername/ns-

After these steps, you can now run the ns validation suite with
cd ns-2.29; ./validate

For trouble shooting, please first read ns problems page Also search the ns
mailing list archive
for related posts.

At this point, you should follow the advice here and update your
environment variables. You should also add ns-allinone-2.29/bin to you
path. This has links to all the executables created by NS-2. Since the Tcl
scripts may call these executables (like nam or xgraph), it is a good idea to
have them in the path.

You can test the installation by doing the following:

cd ns-2.29

Note that this validation takes a really long time. If it starts out ok, you
probably have a good installation.

At this point, you can see Getting Started with NS-2 .
