Novice questions for Fedora installation.


Hello, Firstly I would like to say that Linux is very cool, especially the CLI. I have been trying to learn how to do some things in Fedora after being told Fedora was a good distro to get my feet wet. I have run into some issues and cant seem to find any answers. Could someone please help?

What Linux utility can be configured to automatically save the current logs?

How does your Fedora get an IP number?

What IP numbers has your Fedora been assigned since it was installed (based on the logs you have)?

What command did you run to determine the IP numbers?

What command would you run to determine the number of times a user successfully used "su"?

What command would you run to determine the number of times a user unsuccessfully used "su"?

Having some issues with the file system as your Fedora boots up. What command can I run to find details that could help you troubleshoot these issues?

Thank you.
