This article will discuss a difference between kill vs killall commands. Killing processes on a Linux is an essential thing for admins and users to know. At some point, you’ll encounter an application or services that hangs and freezes, and you’ll need to kill the process to exit it.
We can use the mount command in Linux to attach file systems and removable devices such as USB flash drives. The default file system for most Linux distributions is ext4. We can also dismount file systems with the unmount command.
Linux considers anything stored on a file system as files, even block devices. This means commands such as the dd command in Linux can be very handy in many situations, as it can be used to convert and copy files in the terminal, backup disks, or wipe data. The dd command is just as fundamental as it is useful, as it’s ready to use even on the most basic installations of Linux distros.
On any operating system, the files on your hard disk take up a certain amount of space. In Linux specifically, you can view how much space that these files take up in the command line terminal by using the du command. The du command (the name is shortened from “disk usage”), as the name implies, will simply display, in its output, the amount of disk space being used by a specified file or directory.
In Linux, we can employ many different methods for making text file management more convenient and fluid. The csplit command in Linux is a perfect example of how we can make text files a lot easier to maintain.
This tutorial will show you a small example of C++ code on how to read a characters from a file, as well as to count the number lines that any particular file consist of. We will be creating the script and compiling the C++ on a Linux system. All distros will work the same, provided you have the G++ compiler installed, which we will cover as well.
SELinux, which stands for Security Enhanced Linux, is an extra layer of security control built for Linux systems. SELinux has three possible modes in which it can be running. Depending on which mode it’s in will determine the behavior of SELinux. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to check the SELinux operational mode.
SELinux, which stands for Security Enhanced Linux, is an extra layer of security control built for Linux systems. The original version of SELinux was developed by the NSA. Other key contributors include Red Hat, which has enabled it by default in their own RHEL and its derivative Linux distributions.
