Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The error is telling you that the partition your trying to unzip the archive onto is full. Hence it only unzips two of ten files because it only has room to extract those two and nothing else. Clean up your partition or unzip it onto another.
In sudoers file below shown available where I ve to do the changes as root. I ve taken this file from another server in which I 've root permission but i asked for the another server which I dont know the root password. Plse tell
me what changes should i do from the below sudoers file content.
I got a problem while logging in "/bin/login : error while
loading shared libraries:libscript.so.1:cannot open shared object file : Error 23" . And also a error while switching between database The error is shown below
"connectDBStart() -- socket() failed: errno=23
Too many open files in system
Previous connection kept"
You won't have access to /etc/sudoers unless you're root. Only root is of course allowed to make other users "temporarily" root (using sudo) for the users he/she wants and only for certain commands.
This is logical: if it was not the case, anyone could change the sudoers file and give himself root access (security hazard). I remind you also of the fact that root access is something to be handled with extreme care.
A sudoers file from another machine may be helpful as an example, but can't be used on your machine because you'll still need root access to overwrite the /etc/sudoers file.
In other words
cp /other/machines/sudoers /etc/sudoers #or mv
won't work, unless you have root access.
* Ask for root access on the machine to a "network administrator". If you're not allowed to have it, we'll need to look at alternatives to fix your problems without reverting to root access.
* If there is no "administrator" of the machine who knows the root password, you can forcibly change it, providing you have physical access to the machine. This implies a system reboot, which may not be allowed for a critical production system and/or if other people are working on the same machine.
Too many open files in system
There is a limitation on the number of open files any user can have on a machine (at the same time).
So, close some files. "lsof" (list of open files) can help you track down any open files.
You said you wanted to install a patch. Software installation is also left up to root in many cases (especially if it involves installing programs into directories only writable by root, like /bin).
It's likely that allocating sockets, ie for your DB, is also allowed only by root, because sockets can be used for network communication. Opening up your machine to the network, can leave it open to outside attack and thus must be "handled with care" (in other words: can be done by root only).
The problem "Too many open files in system" is observed when swiching from one database to other. While logging in I got a problem
"/bin/login : error while
loading shared libraries:libscript.so.1:cannot open shared object file : Error 23"
After this msge the terminal got hanged, Cant do anything and I manually closed it.
