2 Introduction n n LINUX is a free, from scratch operating system based heavily on the POSIX and UNIX APIs. n n LINUX itself is not UNIX, although many people call it that and you would be very hard pushed to tell the difference. n n This is because the UNIX trademark has a cost and is specific to systems that meet a complex set of X/Open standards. n n Kind of OS: open source UNIX

3 n n UNIX is a trademark that was transferred by NOVELL UNIXWARE. n n Microsoft's Windows NT Server Vs. UNIX — is, strangely enough, being upstaged by a Johnny- come-lately called LINUX. n n UNIX-clone LINUX’S emerging popularity gives small businesses another attractive alternative when plotting their network operating system (NOS) strategies, it also adds confusion to an already muddled issue

5 HARDWARE SUPPORT

6 Kernel: LINUX n The LINUX kernel was originally written by LINUS Torvalds(hence the name “LINUX” n The LUINUX kernel maintained by a team of developers. n The kernel itself is released under the GPL(GNU Public License).

7 RED HAT n n Red Hat routinely tests systems and peripherals to determine whether they operate correctly with Red Hat LINUX. n n The Red Hat Service Organization keeps these Hardware Compatibility lists up to date for all supported versions of Red Hat LINUX, which include i386, SPARC, and Alpha architectures 6.2,6.1,6.0,5.2.

8 Red Hat n n Red Hat believes that the hardware on these lists operates correctly with Red Hat Linux n n but because there are an infinite variety of computer system configurations and the manufacturing specifications and components of hardware change, Red Hat cannot guarantee compatibility with any hardware

9 RED HATE READY n n The Red Hat Ready Program is a useful tool for Independent Hardware Vendors. n n A vendor may submit its hardware (including peripherals and systems) to undergo a rigorous certification process performed by highly qualified in-house Red Hat Technicians. n n Certification earns the vendor the right to display the Red Hat Ready logo.

10 RED HAT READY n n The advantages of having your hardware certified under the Red Hat Ready Program are: n n Verification that your hardware is fully compatible with the current version of Red Hat LINUX. n n Use of the Red Hat Ready logo on approved products. n n Your customers will recognize the Red Hat Ready logo and know that your hardware can be trusted to perform when they run Red Hat LINUX.

11 LINUX---X WINDOW

12 Red hat linux 6.1 n Red hat linux6.1 features: n includes a new graphical installation process in addition to the more traditional character-cell installation mode. n Some new features are tools or applications that you can use, others are new versions of the kernel or desktop environments.

13 System Configuration With Linuxconf n Linuxconf is a utility that allows you to configure and control various aspects of your system, and is capable of handling a wide range of programs and tasks. n More information on Linuxconf, including its status, most recent release, and more can be found at the Linuxconf Project homepage: n /

14 Three menu interface linuxconf comes complete with a tree menu interface n 3-1 Linuxconf Entry Screen

15 3-2 filter control screen

16 3-3 users accounts screen

17 conclusion n thanks a lot for your concentration.
