Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.


Unix is the first Operating system in the world, developed by Kem Thompson and Dennis Ritchie in 1969 at Bell Lab by AT&T Company IBM : AIX SGI : IRIX HP : HP Sun : Solaris FSF: Free software foundation organization, they start a project by name GNU. The mail aim of this project is to develop such a O.S that can run on any platform. In 1991, a student Linus Torvalds developed a kernel named Linus’s Kernel plus GNU application called Linux O.S Linux is a open source technology. Different companies that provide Linux in Market are Redhat, SuSe, Mandrake, Turbo, Knoppix etc.

Features and Advantage:
Features: a. Linux is the fastest Operating system in the world. It runs 2 to 3 times fast than windows O.S b. Linux is the very secured O.S because there is no any problem of virus. c. Linux file format is text format and windows file format is binary format. d. Linux is very reliable O.S because kernel of linux is very stable as compare to windows kernel not crashed easily. e. Kernel of linux is very small, it can be stored in floppy f. Linux uses the x-Window system which is advanced network windowing system. Using this system we can display output of any workstation monitor attached in the network Advantages of Linux: a. Virus Proof b. Crash Proof c. Economical d. Multiuser, multi desktop and multi tasking

Mode of Login There are two mode of login 1. Text Mode (Alt+ctrl+F1) 2. Graphical Mode (Alt+Ctrl+F7) In case of Text Mode Station2 Login : root Password : redhat [root@station2~]# to switch from one text mode to another Alt+Ctrl+F1 to Alt+Ctrl+F6 In case of Graphical Mode Ctrl+Alt+F7 Common Command Some of the Common system command are as follow: 1. Date : to display date and time 2. Cal : to display the calendar 3. Cal 11 2006 : display the calendar of Month 11 and year 2006 4. Clear : To clear the screen 5. ls : to list directory contents color identification blue : Directories White : Files Green : Executable files Red ; Zip files, rpm, tar file Different switches used with “ls” command ls –l or ll : used for long listing including file and directory permission (-) : file (d) : Directory (l) : Symbolic link ls –a : shows all hidden files and directory. Any file followed by (.) is hidden file ls –al : show all hidden files and directory with long listing or whole description ls –d : shows all the directory 6. pwd: Print working directory 7. who am I : display the information of current terminal 8. who : display all the terminal in a network 9. history : it shows all the command your have used.


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0ES
By default history stores last 1000 command which u have run. If u want to change # vi /etc/profile HIST SIZE =10 Save and exit # history –c ( to clear all the previous command reside in history) Creating file and Directory: a. Creating file: The ‘cat’ command is used to create a file Syntax: # cat > filename example: # cat > abc.txt (Ctrl +D) is used to save the file. b. View the content of file Syntax: # cat filename Example: #cat abc.txt #cat –b abc.txt c. Creating Directory The ‘mkdir’ command is used to create directory Syntax: Mkdir [directory_name] Example: # mkdir raj Option used: cd : To change directory cd .. : To come out from directory cd : to jump to root directory cd - : to jump to previous directory Deleting Files and directory: Syntax: For file: rm <filename> example: rm abc.txt for directory syntax: rmdir <directory_name> Note: Only empty directory will be deleted) If we want to delete the tree structure of directory then we need to use the following command Syntax:


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0ES
rm –rf <directory_name> where r = recursively f= force in order to remove non empty directory Syntax: rm –r <directory> example; rm –r raj this will remove directory step by step ,first remove sub directory and then finally main directory. Another method of creating file : Touch : this command is used to create a blank file with size zero. # touch <filename> Example: #touch abc Copying File and Directory: a. Copy file: Syntax: # cp [source]filename [destination] b. Copy directory #cp –r [source]directory [destination] to copy a directory into another directory recursively c. cp –rf [source]directory [destination] to copy a directory forcefully syntax used for copy file or directory: cp [option] file destination option: -I : interactive : ask before overwriting file -r : Recursive -p : Preserve -f : forcefully More than one file can be copied at a time if the destination is directory Syntax: cp [option] file1 file2 file 3 Destination Moving and Renaming File and Directory Syntax: # mv : move /rename files and directory


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0ES
Example: # mv [option] file destination example: # mv t.txt /home/raj/ more than one file can be moved at a time if the destination is a directory # mv [option] file1 file2 file3 destination Getting Help: The command that are used to get the help are discussed as : a. Whatis Display a short description of command , it uses a database that is updated nightly. Often not available immediately after installation. Syntax: # Whatis cal b. Help Display usage summary and argument list Syntax: <command> --help Example: #Date –help c. Man and Info: Both provide documentation for command. Almost every command has a “man” page. Collection of pages are called linux manual. # man date # info date Viewing Text Page Syntax: #less [option] [filename] Example: # less abc.txt scroll with arrows/PgUp /PgDown /text : n : Option: -c : -s : search for text Next Match Clear before displaying Squeeze multiple blank lines into a single blank line

Simply we can also use “less” along with pipe | as # ll |less
