+ Topics 105, 106 - Shells and Shell Scripting, User Interfaces and Desktops
3 lectures 06:39

105.1 Customize and use the shell environment

What is a shell?

Shell is a text-based program that acts as an interface between the user and the computer. It also allows the user to interact with the kernel.

Another task of a shell is to provide the environment where a user can execute scripts.

Since Linux is probably the most adaptable operating system, many different shells were released over the time, to meet the users’ needs.


Some of the most known shells are:

· bash

· sh

· ksh

· zsh

· csh


In this exam all tasks are based only on bash shell.


You should be able to

· customize the shell environment by modifying global and user-specific settings

· set environment variables when a user logs in

· create aliases and functions for frequently user commands and tasks

· maintain skeleton directories for new user accounts.



105.2 Customize or write simple scripts

Aliases and functions are very useful and may save you a lot of time. But there are limits in what you can do. Using shell scripting there are limitless possibilities in task automation.

The main goal of this section is to learn how to write simple bash scripts using commands you already know. The standard sh syntax will be used.

You have to be familiar with the shebag line (#!) of a script, which determines the script interpreter. For example, if a script starts with the #!/bin/bash line, it means that the following commands will interpreted by the bash interpreter.

It is also mandatory to know how to concatenate commands and designate the execution of a command depending on the result of another.

Check the following

command1 || command2:
if the command1 fails, then the command2 will be executed

command1 && command2:
the command2 will executed only if the command1 succeeds

command1; command2:
both commands will be executed


The loops and the if-statements are also part of the exam. You should be able to understand them and use them.

Here is a simple script that sums all numbers passed as arguments in the script:



Finally, you should be able to set the ownership and the correct execution rights to a script so they can be executed by whoever you choose.

106: User Interfaces and Desktops

In this section you have to get familiar with the X11, its architecture, and how to install and configure it.

Your understanding on the X-Window configuration file and the ability to override some basic settings of it, will be probably tested in the exam.

Understand the components of desktop environments, such as display manager and window manager
Manage access to the X server and view applications running on remote servers



106.2 Graphical Desktops

This section is more or less informative. You should be aware of the existence of graphical desktops, the ability to access them remotely and the protocols that are used to achieve it.

The most common desktop environments are KDE, GNOME and Xfce.

The most common remote desktop protocols are XDMCP, VNC, RDP, SPICE



106.3 Accessibility

This section is also an informative one. You should be aware of the existence of the accessibility settings and the assistive techniques like:

· Braille display

· Screen magnification

· On screen Keyboard

· Voice recognition

· "Sticky" and repeat keys

2 lectures 04:38

109.1 Fundamentals of internet protocols

You should be able to understand the TCP/IP network fundamentals. It is an important section and one you have to deeply dive in.


Starting with DoD model, you should know its four layers and the protocols that are used in each one:

· Layer 3: Host-to-Host Layer (TCP, UDP)

· Layer 2: Internet Layer (IPv4, IPv6, RIP, OSPF, ARP, IGMP, ICMP)

· Layer 1: Network Access Layer (Ethernet, MAC, HDLC, PPPoE)


For the exam you should study layers 1~3 and their protocols.


In the internet layer, to achieve the packet/datagram delivery to the correct application, network applications, use ports. Each application has its own port. There is a total of 65,536 ports available. The first 1,024 ports are called Well Known Ports. Here is a list with the most common TCP and UDP ports that you should know for the exam.


Another important objective in this section is IP-Classes.

You have to know that there are five classes. The Class D is reserved for multicast and the Class E is reserved for experimental purposes.

Foreach class you should know the starting and the ending addresses, the standard network mask and the assigned address range for private networks.


Important:

The 127.0.0.0/8 network is the loopback network that a computer uses for internal communication within the same machine. Usually the IP address 127.0.0.1 is used for the loopback device.

The network with the address 169.254.0.0/16 is used for automatic addressing in home networks (APIPA).


Other objectives that are discussed in this section are

  • network masks

  • CIDR notation

  • gateways

  • broadcast addresses

  • IPv6 addresses.



109.2 Persistent network configuration

By completing this section, you should be able to:

· understand the TCP/IP host configuration,

· configure the ethernet and Wi-Fi connections using the NetworkManager

· Know about systemd-networkd

Your aim should be to successful manage the persistent network configuration of a Linux host.



109.3 Basic network troubleshooting

This section aims at troubleshooting the network issues. You should be able to view and manually configure the network interfaces as well as to view and manually configure the routing tables of the machine.

Using tools like ping, traceroute, tracepath, netcat, ifconfig, netstat, route you should be able to debug network connectivity issues.



109.4 Configure client-side DNS

In this part of the syllabus you will learn how to cope with a DNS server.

Be sure you can query any remote DNS server and configure the local name resolution so you can use remote DNS servers
