  1. 1. Useful Linux TrainingUseful Linux TrainingLinux Professional Institute (Photo credit: Wikipedia)If you have started to use the Linux Operating System. you might be interested in some freeLinux Training courses offered by the IBM Developerworks website.Basic tasks for new Linux users as follows:Login Logging in and understanding the Linux desktopNavigation and settings Tweaking settings to suit your personal needsCommand line access When you really need to work at the command lineBecoming superuser (or root) When ordinary user authority isn’t enoughUsing a GUI application as another user Getting comfortable with multi-user system capabilitiesRemovable devices Using removable media and making sure you don’t lose data when you detach removable devicesLogout When you’re done for a while or need a panel icon for logout or other applicationsAdding users and groups Adding more users or user groups to your systemThese instructions and examples focus on three popular distributions and their default graphicaldesktops: Fedora 13 using a GNOME desktop OpenSUSE 11.3 using a KDE 4 desktop Ubuntu 10.10 using a GNOME desktop 1/3
  2. 2. Other distributions, desktops, and window managers are available, and we encourage you toexplore further on your own. Even if some of the information here is specific to a particulardistribution and even a particular version of a distribution, what you learn here should help younavigate a strange distribution.Because this tutorial simply aims to help you get started, you won’t find information on moreadvanced tasks like recompiling your kernel or installing software. We recommend ourno-charge Linux (LPI) certification self-study guides for deeper information.Linux Professional Institute (LPI) Certification CoursesThey allow to increase your knowledge of Linux and prepare for the LPI Certification exams.The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) certifies Linux® system administrators at three levels: Certification level 1 (Junior level, or LPIC-1) Certification level 2 (Advanced level, or LPIC-2) Certification level 3 (Senior level, or LPIC-3)To attain certification level 1, you must pass LPIC-1 exams 101 and 102.To attain certification level 2, you must pass LPIC-2 exams 201 and 202.To attain certification level 3, you must pass LPIC-3 exam 301 (“core”) and have an activecertification level 2. You may also need to pass additional specialty exams at the senior level.Before you take the exams, review the LPI-oriented articles and tutorials on developerWorks,designed as study guides for each exam topic.The main tutorials are the following: Foundational concepts (the 101- and 102-series articles, which correspond to LPIC-1 certification) Intermediate to advanced topics (the 201- and 202-series tutorials, which correspond to LPIC-2 certification) Expert topics (the 301-series tutorials, which correspond to LPIC-3 certification)There are plenty of useful information on the IBM Developerworks website. It is a very goodresource. 2/3
