LPI Certification Material
At one time I really wanted to take the LPI certification but I feel my experience speaks for itself. However I do want to cover the material and refresh myself on some of the stuff that I don't use on a regular basis. I bolded the commands I use the least and reworded the description a little more to my liking. Most of the information is just examples I found and stuff I think would be covered.
- declare - Use the declare command to set variable and functions attributes.
- quota - displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the user quotas are printed.
- date - display or set the time.
- rpm - package manager. (I prefer debian)
- xvidtune - tweaks the screen resolution.
- nl - prints line numbers before each line in a file.
- od - dumps files in octal format.
- su - option m is pretty useful, do not reset environment variables.
- mkfs - “used to build a Linux file system on a device, usually a hard disk partition.”
- XF86Config -the section concerned with fonts: The Files sections
- XFree86 -config file is: /etc/X11/XF86Config
- sed - edits the stream by filtering and transforming text.
- dpkg - need to know difference from a --remove and the --purge action
- tar, gzip, gunzip - just need to know all of these.
- kbdmap - allows for setting key maps, used with command vidfont.
- kill - kills a process!
- mkdir - this should be very oblivious but it makes directories. where's touch makes files.
- whereis - locates files by name, strips leading paths and single form extensions. Not ".min.js"
- lsattr - list attributes on a file system, description of attributes at chattr.
- make - a utility to maintain other programs.
- xset - sets user preference to the x window utility.
- alien - will convert rpm files to .deb packages.
- xauth - edits authorizations information for x window utility.
- proc - process information pseudo file system, mostly read only.
- command line redirection characters. "<<, <, >, >>"
- Linux environment variables.
- environment variable BAR
- Example: LD_LIBRARY_PATH
- The environment variable you have to setup to use shared libraries that are not in the standard path?
- Make number of Partitions for primary
- Why do I have to define LD_LIBRARY_PATH with an export every time I run my application? - Stack Overflow
- Shared Libraries
