Before proceeding to the tutorials, it is important to read the following remarks:


  CHARACTERS IN BOLD

The commands or the changes in files are indicated in bold characters.
Example:

# mv test.ini /home/rancid/test1.ini


  LAUNCHING A COMMAND

The commands have to be launched with the root user except if a username is indicated before the command.
Examples:

# who am i

rancid@ubuntu# echo 'that's life !'
The first command is launched by the root user, the second by the user called rancid.


  ACQUIRING ROOT RIGHTS

Under Debian, If you want to acquire root access when logged as a simple user, enter the following command

user@debian#su root
This is different under Ubuntu where the philosophy is not to log in with the root user but to punctually acquire root rights using the sudo commands.

rancid@ubuntu# sudo adduser user12879
The command is launched with the rancid user but with root rights because of the sudo command. Of course, after the sudo command, you have to enter a password.
If you want to log in as the root user on Ubuntu:

user@ubuntu# sudo su


  OPEN SOURCE CONCEPT

All the tools presented in our tutorials are open source tools. Please read our open source page if you want information about the open source concept where a software is transmitted with its source code.


  LINUX PACKAGES

Read explanations about packages, the Linux compiled programs that can be compared to Microsoft programs, and the tools called APT to manage them.


  VERDANA POLICE

Under Debian or Ubuntu when using the Firefox web browser, you may need to install the verdana police by installing msttcorefonts package, this will install some frequently used Microsoft fonts.
