Download Linux.iso , ensure to have a USB Drive and also another tool called Rufus on Windows, once the iso downloads then you can make a bootable USB Drive, oce the drive is plugged, it will self-boot into the setup and you can just install, what is the spec of the system ?

I won't advice you to use Linux(any of the distros), if you're new to it.

a. Find all lines in the file /var/log/secure that contain the string “FAILED”
followed by the string “linda” and save the output to a file named
/root/search/6/securefile.txt
b. Find all files in /var/log that contain the string “Erased” and copy them to
the directory /root/search/6/erased
c. Find all lines that start with the string “name” in the file /proc/crypto and
save the output to /root/search/6/crypto.txt

Hi qtguru,
I was gifted a laptop BUT it didn't come with any OS.
Please, how do I install Linux on it?

It's very easy actually.

You need to have a USB stick (USB drive). It should be 4gb minimum.

There are many different types of Linux. These are called Distributions or Distros for short.

As a new user, I'd recommend you go for kubuntu or zorin or Linux mint.

The above Distros are very close to windows in look and will work as normal after installation. I'd recommend kubuntu as your first choice, it's quite stable.

Anyways, which ever Distros you Decided to chose, download it to your system (this will be tricky since you don't have an os on your system, it's best you get windows on it first or borrow a laptop to download it).

After downloading the os, install a bootable disk maker.

I'd recommend balena etcher, it's easy and straightforward.

Download and install balena etcher on the system you are using.

Now plug in your USB drive and open the balena app.

Click on 'flash from file', choose the iso file, select target location which will be your USB and then click on flash.

It'll take some time to flash.

After flashing, remove the disk and plug it in your system.

It'll boot from the USB drive and you can try the Linux app or choose install and it'll be installed.

Thank you.

can you take a look at these ones too
1.
a. Find all files and directories in /etc that start with “a” or “b” and copy them
to the directory /root/found/8/permissions while preserving their
permissions.
b. Find all files in /etc that are greater than 1MB and save their absolute
paths to the file /root/found/8/big-files.txt
c. Find all files in /etc not owned by root and copy the files to
/root/other_users


2.

Create the following users with the following details - If the supplemental groups
listed do not exist, create them.
a. bob - Supplemental Group engineers - PW: cent6
b. tim - Supplemental Group webdev - PW: cent6
c. ben - Supplemental Group chemical - PW: cent6
d. All accounts created must expire one year from today.
e. Set the user bob’s default shell to zsh
f. Set the user tim’s default home directory to /shadow-soft - if this directory
does not exist, create. Apply the same SELinux contexts and permissions
to /shadow-soft that would be found on a user's /home directory such that
Tim and only Tim will have access to /shadow-soft

Wouldn't it be better if you do research yourself to know how to answer this questions? That way you would understand what am doing.

Anyways.
ls /etc | egrep "(a|b)" | xargs -I {} cp -p {} /root/found/8/permissions/


b. Find all files in /etc that are greater than 1MB and save their absolute
paths to the file /root/found/8/big-files.txt
find /etc -size +1M -exec readlink -f {} \; > /root/found/8/big-files.txt

c. Find all files in /etc not owned by root and copy the files to
/root/other_users
find /etc -not -user "root" -exec cp {} /root/other_users/ \;

Yes. I have some answers but for some i am not getting the desired result.


for example see this question

Create a bash shell script named certscript.sh under
/home/student/apps/.
● Make sure the script can be invoked as
./certscript.sh.
● The first line of output from the script should consist of the
name of the user who invoked it.
● The second line of output should contain the IP address
of the default gateway.

my solution
echo my name is &whoami
echo my Gateway IP is & ip r | grep default


I want a result like my name is saxwizard and my gateway is 192.168.1.1

certscript.sh


#!bin/sh env
NAME=$(whoami)
IP=$(ifconfig | grep inet | awk 'NR == 2 { print $2 }')
echo "my name is $NAME and my gateway is $IP"


chmod +x certscript.sh


For accuracy of IP address you have to send me the output of ifconfig
