Please make sure that:

* You can use a text editor (vi emacs nano gedit — I don't care)
 +
* You have a laptop with plenty of charge. There will be some power available; I don't know how much.
 +
* You can get access to a Bourne compatible shell. Most machines will have <code>/bin/sh</code> as a link to a Bourne-compatible shell. Such shells include:
 +
** dash

** bash

** ksh
  
Mini conferences will run on the Monday and Tuesday of LCA 2016. The call for papers for these are handled individually by the organisers of each conference.

We'll be using only standard commands &mdash; ''ls sed awk grep test'' etc.

One non-standard command you may wish to install for the first exercise is sysvbanner. On Debian or Ubuntu do:
 +
apt-get install sysvbanner
  
Here's a list of the open CFPs, with close dates and links. If you are attending LCA and have a ticket, why not throw in a proposal? [https://linux.conf.au/register/info You can also buy a single miniconf ticket].

It doesn't seem to be available for CentOS, but for RedHAT and Fedora you can do:
 +
yum install banner

Revision as of 14:14, 27 January 2016

Prerequisites

This is a tutorial, and has hands-on exercises for you to do to help understand the material presented. Please make sure that:

  • You can use a text editor (vi emacs nano gedit — I don't care)
  • You have a laptop with plenty of charge. There will be some power available; I don't know how much.
  • You can get access to a Bourne compatible shell. Most machines will have /bin/sh as a link to a Bourne-compatible shell. Such shells include:
    • dash
    • bash
    • ksh

Material

We'll be using only standard commands — ls sed awk grep test etc. One non-standard command you may wish to install for the first exercise is sysvbanner. On Debian or Ubuntu do:

apt-get install sysvbanner

It doesn't seem to be available for CentOS, but for RedHAT and Fedora you can do:

yum install banner

To save time (and contention on the server at tutorial time) please grab

 http://ssrg.nicta.com.au/Downloads/lca16/shell-tut-examples.tgz

and unpack it with

 tar xzvf shell-tut-examples.tgz

This will save you typing time, and provide the data files you need for the final exercises.
