Welcome to the new Linux Foundation Forum!

Welcome to the LFS201 Class Forum

Welcome to both LFS201 and this forum!

Our intention is to have course participants reach out to each other with questions, comments and corrections. Linux Foundation Training staff will keep an eye on and participate on this forum. Specific errata should also be sent to [email protected] where we compile such data.

Make sure you have a fully operational Linux distribution to use to perform the laboratory exercises. Just reading the written material is only part of the task. In our live instructor-led classes we spend about 50 percent of the time on the labs, but there is rarely enough time to do them all; here you do not have the same time constraints and will not be sitting through a lecture with a human being, so your percentage of practical exercise time should be significantly higher.

We haven't covered everything in great detail but keep in mind most of the documentation in Linux is actually already on your system in the form of man pages. The course material means you to understand implicitly to always consult them for more details. It would have been boring to regurgitate them in the text.

If you decide to continue building your career in Linux after taking this course, you might be interested in the pursuing one or both of the Linux Foundation Certifications.

  • Would you consider reorganizing the LFS201 Forum into subtopics under LFS201? It could make it easier for users to engage in deeper discussions about a chapter, get answers to some questions a little easier, provide a quick glace showing chapters that elicit the most discussion, provide a great reference for someone to go read through to see where other students struggle and for additional ideas on that chapter.
