Slide 2

Originated as an examination venture at AT&T Bell Labs in 1969 by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie. Created in a few unique forms for different equipment stages (Sun Sparc, Power PC, Motorola, HP RISC Processors). In 1991, Linus Torvalds made a UNIX-like framework to keep running on the Intel 386 processor. Intel had effectively begun commanding the PC market, yet UNIX was about truant from the starting Intel market. In January 2000, Apple reported MAC OS X, a UNIX/Mach cross breed that gives UNIX order line highlights. What is UNIX (The history)?

Slide 3

Well, yes and no: Yes, on the grounds that it has basically the same look and feel like any UNIX working System. Yes, in light of the fact that it offers the capacity to run about any project that keeps running on UNIX frameworks (through API traditions, for example, POSIX, etc..). No in light of the fact that the framework\'s heart (portion) has a considerable measure of new components that go past the traditional configuration reasoning of UNIX pieces. Is LINUX truly UNIX?

Slide 4

Noted for its dependability, multi-tasking execution and system application capacities. Since it has begun life in the scholarly world, where the greater part of the exploratory examination projects are produced, you will discover a considerable measure of good logical programming that keeps running on UNIX/LINUX. Windows has surely scored to a littler degree on this territory. Unix/LINUX is rich in charges and programming advancement abilities. Each UNIX/LINUX OS accompanies a manufactured arrangement of compilers/troubleshoot apparatuses that have are utilized broadly by the world academic group. This is not valid for Windows. Why would it be advisable for you to pick UNIX/LINUX?

Slide 5

GNU remains for “ G NU\'s N ot U nix”. The three letter truncation is not a joke. It accentuates a noteworthy venture of the Free Software Foundation (FSF) that truly made the LINUX working framework with a large number of its prominent devices. Richard Stallman made FSF, so as to support the improvement and utilization of unreservedly redistributable code. Openly implies the flexibility of redistributing your code under specific conditions. It doesn\'t mean zero money related expense! The Gnu Public License (GPL) characterizes the terms and states of redistributing the LINUX part and different devices that make it usable, shaping a LINUX conveyance. What is GNU?

Slide 6

The GPL structure permitted LINUX dispersions (RedHat, SuSE, Mandrake) to be shaped. These are composed ties of the LINUX portion together with an arrangement of projects (content tools, compilers, office and investigative suites) to make a framework suitable for a specific errand. The MCC conveyance made by Manchester Computer Center at the University of Manchester in England together with \'SoftLanding Systems\' (currently called \'Slackware\') were the first authority LINUX appropriations. RedHat, SuSE , ‘Ubuntu’ and others took after being more successfull today, essentially on the grounds that they are more easy to use. What is a LINUX dispersion?

Slide 7

LINUX is positively a less expensive different option for other restrictive UNIX frameworks, for example, Sun Solaris or HP-UX in light of the fact that: It keeps running on a more extensive scope of equipment than them. You could either download it for nothing (no bolster) or buy it an arrangement of establishment media (CD/DVDs) with backing from a business LINUX seller (see references) at an expense which is a little portion of the TCO of a UNIX framework. Today LINUX can likewise give you an incorporated desktop environment with Word Processing, Spreadsheet and improvement apparatuses at a significantly lower expense than obtaining a Microsoft Windows framework. The case for LINUX

Slide 8

Provides an intense interface to the UNIX Operating System so you can control information and execute a few applications under specific conditions. Otherwise called the " order line " interface, a touch like the old “Command Prompt” in Windows/DOS frameworks, yet it is not the same. Goes under distinctive flavors, yet every one of them do likewise in marginally diverse ways. Knowing the shell well is the ONLY WAY to make the most out of a UNIX framework. It can be somewhat troublesome toward the starting, yet since you get accustomed to it, you have made a decent companion that will assist you with tending to each computational issue! The UNIX \'shell\':

Slide 9

keeping in mind the end goal to have the capacity to utilize the UNIX shell, you will need to verify yourself (tell the framework who you are). This procedure is usually called the "login" procedure, and it includes two stages. - Know your username and a secret word . - Have a method for speaking with the UNIX shell so you can give this sort of data. The principal step is entirely simple. You contact your framework chairman or important power and you get a login name and a watchword for the framework. The second step obliges a smidgen more consideration. Signing into the shell:

Slide 10

Back in the old UNIX days, clients had committed machines called terminals that used to show message just data. Today, a great many people join with a UNIX framework by method for speedier TCP/IP system associations from another UNIX-like workstation or a Microsoft Windows machine. The most secure and most far reaching approach to join is the Secure Shell (SSH) convention . This takes into account secure point-to-point correspondence between your framework and the UNIX machine you are attempting to login to. Associating with a UNIX framework (1):

Slide 11

UNIX/LINUX and MAC OS X workstations make the SSH UNIX login handle simple. You will require the IP address or the DNS name of the UNIX workstation. On the off chance that, for instance, you username is ‘ georgios ’ and you need to login to the UNIX server ‘ frigg.uio.no ’ ,I would sort: ssh georgios@frigg.uio.no [press enter] The server would then approach me the secret word for username georgios. In the event that I write the secret word accurately (note you won\'t see the watchword as you write it ), then I will be welcomed by the shell brief. Utilizing SSH from a UNIX workstation:

Slide 12

Windows will probably require the establishment of extra SSH terminal customer programming for this reason. Projects, for example, \'F-Secure SSH \'or "PuTTY" give an essential terminal window for interfacing with the Shell. In the event that you have to show representation produced on the UNIX machine, you will require a X-Windows customer for Windows, for example, Exceed or X-Win32. Extra design steps should be made, keeping in mind the end goal to make X-Windows correspondence conceivable. Solicit the assistance from your neighborhood framework executive to set up these projects. Utilizing SSH from a Windows Workstation:

Slide 13

There is a fundamental language structure for all charges executed at the shell: summon argument1 argument2 argument3... order is the name of the real shell summon you wish to execute. Each charge may take a sure number of contentions (or operands). For instance: compact disc/mn/proteas/information “cd” is the real summon and it takes one contention “/mn/proteas/data”. Continuously verify that you have a space between a shell charge and its argument(s). Fundamental Shell Principles (1):

Slide 14

All UNIX shells are case delicate as to both the charges and their contentions, as opposed to forms of Windows/DOS frameworks. This implies that writing: cd/mydirectory/projects is not the same as writing: CD/MYDIRECTORY/PROGRAMS or even: Cd/MyDirectory/Programs Usually, shell orders are lower case, unless generally expressed. Essential Shell Principles (2):

Slide 15

When you login into a UNIX framework, you will experience the shell brief . The shell brief is a sign that the framework is prepared to execute your orders, however it likewise contains helpful data. A commonplace shell brief resembles the one underneath: georgios@frigg/usr/canister/virexp $ saying that I am at present signed in as client georgios at a server called frigg and I am at present in a catalog called virexp that dwells under a registry with name/usr/receptacle/. The $ sign says \'you can sort now\' and it ought to have an (occasionally flickering) cursor after it. The Shell Prompt:

Slide 16

Every shell session has a gathering of variables all things considered known as the “ shell environment ”. They control various issues like the Shell\'s presence brief, what project may be your default content tool and numerous different issues. Maybe the most imperative of these variables that can influence your activities is the “ execution way ”. This is a rundown of indexes that the shell recollects constantly, keeping in mind the end goal to consequently reference certain applications (without you recalling where they are). Sort reverberation $PATH at the shell brief to see this rundown of catalogs. The Shell Execution Path:

Slide 17

A Filesystem is a unique piece of the Operating System that is in charge of arranging the stockpiling of your information inside a PC. Once more, similar to the shell, there are a few distinct sorts of filesystems, however they all perform basically the same capacities (straightforward and productive information stockpiling). Notwithstanding, for extensive server frameworks, the decision of filesystem normally represents the deciding moment issues, for example, execution, unwavering quality and stockpiling effectiveness. System mindful filesystems merit an exceptional notice, since they take into consideration proficient and straightforward information access by means of PC systems. Cases: CIFS(Windows and UNIX) and NFS(Unix). Filesystem essentials (1):

Slide 18

UNIX records are named areas on the PC\'s capacity gadget. Every filename focuses to an exceptional filesystem record that contains data about: The sort of document (plain information, executable project, uncommon gadget) The client who made the document Access authorizations for the record The starting and end of the record in the filesystem region, and in addition its precise position in the filesystem. Filesystem nuts and bolts (2): UNIX records

Slide 19

Directories (or envelopes) are holders in which documents can be gathered. In a UNIX framework, the
