Help needed..Urgent

Hi guys..

Thanks for watching this thread.

I dont know if I post this in a correct place (sorry if Im wrong)

I have an assignment (school assgmnt) regarding the LINUX Bluecat distribution.

But I have zero (0) knowledge about it.

Can someone explain (or defines) these:

1. LINUX Bluecat-device management
2.LINUX Bluecat-process management

I have googled for those keyword, but I never get a result that relevent.

Can anyone?

I presume that if this is a school assignment, that you were given documentation on the Lynuxworks BlueCat discription. Your questions are probably answered by reading that material.

Otherwise, go to and search for "device management" or "process management".

I'll have to congratulate the teacher who managed to formulate the questions in such way that google wasn't of any help.

Also, it would be great if you mailed him and reported yourself as a cheater.

Thirdly, it's probably okay to ask for help on assignments (I have not read the forum-rules in a long time), but then you should show that you have done your, ehh.. homework.
That is, that you have put genuine work into your studies.

You question shows that you have not read the material and/or attended class.

Reminds me of an old, old TV show, before my time.. IIRC the initials were O.Y., and it dealt with a non-cat animal.

There is no rule about asking for help with homework----what the good book says is:
Do not expect LQ members to do your homework - you will learn much more by doing it yourself.
Help is regularly given to those who demonstrate some previous effort and knowledge.

In this case, please tell us what you know about that version of Linux. If you have not yet installed it and used it, that would be a very good first step.
