Reddit: I'm new to IT. Need info on GUI for Fedora.

Saturday 21st of January 2017 09:15:09 PM

Hello, I just started taking Cisco level 1 and Linux 1 at my college to get the CCNA certification. My first assignment in Linux is to do a report on Fedora. The only issue I'm having is finding out what GUI Fedora uses. I don't know if it can use multiple GUIs or one specific GUI and I can't find a clear cut answer everywhere I've looked. Maybe I'm asking the question wrong. If anyone can provide assistence I would greatly appreciate it.

Reddit: Looking for Linux problem solving examples

Saturday 21st of January 2017 05:36:11 PM

I got a buddy that is trying to learn Linux via the Linux System's Administration curriculum providing by the LF. He is a smart guy but is having trouble with applicability. Does anyone know (or can provide a list) of problems to solve?

I am talking about things like:

  • Find out how much CPU %USR was used during X time period?

  • Find out who is logged in?

  • Who were the last 3 people that logged in?

  • How do you make it so user a and user b can safely share the contents of a directory without user c being able to see the contents of the directory?

  • How do you properly edit the sudoers file?

Things like that...
