Post 40 Must Know Linux Terminologies for Beginners

If you have been using any of the Linux distributions or intend to, you must be aware of the terminologies related to it. Therefore, with an objective to familiarize you with the new terms or the terms that you have heard of, I have tried my best to compile these 40 basic terminologies related to Linux.


Alien is a computer program that supports conversion between different Linux package formats. For example, it helps conversion between Linux Standard Base, RPM, deb, Stampede (.slp), Solaris (.pkg) and Slackware (.tgz) packages. It is also capable of automatically installing the generated packages, and can try to convert the installation scripts included in the archive as well.

# alien --to-rpm --scripts ./test.deb (test.deb converted to test.rpm)

Apache HTTP Server

The Apache HTTP Server commonly referred to as Apache is an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including Linux and Windows NT. It is also notable for playing a key role in the initial growth of the World Wide Web.

Now the application is available for a wide variety of OS, including UNIX, GNU, FreeBSD, Solaris, Novell NetWare, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, OS/2, TPF, and eComStation.

External forum or web log promotion aka spam is not appreciated.

LQ is a friendly forum with a large userbase. Usage is free for all. Because it is free some therefore people think that they may abuse that hospitality by using it to promote their products, forum or web log for free. That is not the case and it is not appreciated. Next to that these posts are the first two and only posts you've made on LQ sofar and you have not provided reciprocal links to LQ on your website. So apparently you only have the intention to leech for your own benefit.
Things don't work that way.

Do not do that again.

Post reported.
