Well you could install CentOS and search around some basic administrative tasks to learn. If you want to learn anything on Linux, I would recommend at least gaining an understanding of the command ... [by usr_drc]
Hi all and TIA for all the questions I will have. I am just over the 'noob hill' trying valiantly to learn Linux. Luckily, I landed a job where I do basic Linux administration on HP-UX, but it is very basic and it is a live system. Which means I cannot play or learn as much as I would like to.
I'm having trouble understanding why CentOS is using ~1.5g for disk caching, even though it's using ~2g of swap. My understanding is that Linux will use part of RAM for disk caching only when it's not being used for something else.
I have set vm.swappiness down to 10 (default was 60), with no effect (using sysctl -w).
I am a student at DeVry University, newly introduced to Fedora and Linux in general, and have a project whereby, we have been asked to consider some administrative tasks that we could automate via a script.
I was wondering if there were any thoughts or directives from the community on what admin tasks you guys find to be of inestimable use in automating via a Linux script.
