Linux equivalent commands for all Solaris commands


Hi,

I'm new to the Linux.I'm struggling to find Linux equivalent for all Solaris commands. Please help me out to find Linux equivalent for Solaris commands.

Please any one can tell me what is the Linux equivalent of Solaris's logadm and logins command.

Thanks.

I had to do some looking but hopefully these are good equivalents to what you are looking for. Though there is not a one to one comparison. User management and history is broken into many subroutines in Linux.

Manage Linux log files with Logrotate

passwd Modify a user password.

I'm not sure about 'logadm' which manages log files, (they live in /var/log) but eeprom is the equivalent of 'printenv' from the 'OK' prompt while accessing the Open Boot Prom from whatever the Sun system you are using. I therefore would say that that Solaris command is particular to Sun hardware and probably not covered in generic Linux.

Play Bonny!
