I will keep everything in mind.
Thank You for the reply.

Hi theNbomr,

Thank You for the reply.
All you said is really good, I work in MS OS and network troubleshooting, I too do not want everything to just work fine but want to learn.
I am installiing all the versions just to check . But definitely , I will start with what has been suggested to me.
Will need help for sure from you all..

I just installed OpenSuse x86 on virtualbox, tried to run a website , got error with flash. Tried installing it,no success.
I am just browsing for the resolution.

At linxquestions are forums for "Linux - Newbies" and forums for particular versions, also for more specialized topics.



Being "Linux - Newbies" regular visits to browse and read from "Linux - Newbies" issues from other people, helps us resolve them, or face them a bit more relaxed when they become our own ;-)



As part of narrowing down your version choice, also read from those specific linux version forums as well.


Some comment how particular forums seem friendlier to new users, than others - IMHO all in the mind of the beholder.



When decide to stay with particular Linux version its' own user forums can be good places to follow closer, reading others problems helps us react better to resolve them when they arrive to be our problems.


Self still enjoys here, similar problems opensuse and other linux versions, their solutions often explain well problems self later finds facing with openSUSE.


Is all part of our learning...

I posted that entry below before iread you are already running VirtualBox. To install flash in OpenSuse do a search typing installing restricted codecs in OpenSuse and follow the steps. It will be different base on your desktop manager. Do you have Gnome or KDE?

Good luck to you!


Ignore this
If your computer in which you already installed Ubuntu has a newer processor like core 2 duo, or equivelant and enough ram then you can install virtualbox and use virtualbox for testing whichever operating system you want. That way you wont have to mess up your hard drive

Interesting if Red Hat certification is any good for other distros? Does it contain enough general low level information that helps you administer any linux distro? Or is it specifically geared towards RHEL and nothing else?

i don't know if you are aware about the Administration courses that Red Hat is making.
THey also give you a certificate of a Linux Administrator. In order to get the Linux Administrator certification, you have to pay around 6.000$ and pass all the three courses.

HI LeoPap ,
As I know, Linux certification exam fees is around $400.00, I do not know any certification for $6.000
Is it something new?

Hello mate,

I am not talking about the exam fee, but the fees of attenting all the pre-exam courses on a classroom

It's classroom has 5 days duration. The first course on classroom cost 2,500$.

Hi Avinash,

I'm also new to linux and learning System Administration. I take help from several resources

1. The forums
2. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/newto/
3.http://wireless.ictp.trieste.it/scho...linux/rute.pdf
4. Youtube, I search for different topics on youtube and that really helps

Hopefully this may help you too.

Ali

Hello Folks,

I am planning to read books like :
.Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide -An in-depth exploration of the art of shell scripting by Mendel Cooper
.The Art of UNIX Programming by Eric Raymond
Currently going with the basics, reading Sams book on shell programming.
Will that help?

Ok guys, so listen how things going in order to get the Red Hat System Administration certification.

In order to get this certification, you will have to complete the following three courses:
Red Hat System Administration I : 1,600
Red Hat System Administration II (with exam) : 1,880
Red Hat System Administration III (with exam): 2,256

If you complete these courses and pass the exams, then you will get the Red Hat System Administration Certificate.
You can participate on these courses, either on classroom, either via online classroom. Of course online classroom is cheaper, but don't expect a huge discount.

Of course Red Hat is offering plenty of other courses as well, for example RH190 is a 3 day course regarding command line skills with a cost of 1,260
