RHCE on text editors


I wonder if the Certification when it mentions 'text editors' they mean vim or should I also learn EMACS, pico, nano.

Unfortunately the rundown of the certification doesn't specify much.

like any rational human being, you should know vi and cast scorn and pity on anyone using anything else, but you are welcome to use *ANY* editor you like, although whilst installing X during an RHCE lab is actually 100% legitimate and doable, somethign console based is going to be the way forward really. you have nano on the installation media, and emacs and all sorts of others too. but the safe bet is vi (or rather, vim)

no questions about text editors at all. no questions about anything on the rhce, it's about achieving results, not answering questions. you can use whatever you see fit as long as the brief is completed.

The RHCE exam prep guide suggests that you need to be able to boot from the first CD in rescue mode. I'm not sure if emacs is available in rescue mode, but vi(m) certainly is.

The centre you are training at may be able to assist with mock tests and the suchlike, but any one who is not accredited by Red hat should not, under any circumstances, be supplying them. Firstly I believe there is an NDA for these things and secondly you have no way of verifying their quality.

If all else fails, look at the syllabus and make sure you know it all.

Dear a280931,

The RHCE is designed as a hands-on exam for experienced Linux administrators. Most who take the exam have significant Linux experience. Red Hat weeds out "newbies" from its RHCE prep course, RH300.

Less than 50% pass the exam the first time.

When I took the RHCE the first time in 2002 (along with the prep course), there were several others who had significant experience in Unix, but not Red Hat, so they did not pass. There were no newbies in our class. I had four years of experience with Linux, and was probably the least experienced person there.
