Exercise 2.1 - unable to download the course material

Options

The instruction says

wget https://cm.lf.training/LFD259/LFD259V2024-02-22SOLUTIONS.tar.xz\--user=LFtraining --password=xxx

I redacted the password as I'm not sure if that's meant to be public, but I copied the command verbatim to my terminal and I got 401 unauthorized and 404 not found error:

$ wget https://cm.lf.training/LFD259/LFD259V2024-02-22SOLUTIONS.tar.xz --user=LFtraining --password=xxx

    Hi @kevin.jing.qiu

    Please check the note underneath the command in the pdf. Copy-pastying has altered the command by deleting underscores. Once your typed command is correct, it will download the resources.

    You can also download the resources by following instructions provided in the introductory chapter.

    Regards,

    Flavia

    Adding the underscore didn't work for me. I had to use the Course Resource link found in course introduction -> course support - course resources.

    $ wget https://cm.lf.training/LFD259/LFD259_V2024-02-22_SOLUTIONS.tar.xz\--user=XXX --password=XXX

    Hi @ismar,

    It looks like you are missing a space between .tar.xz and --user, and instead there's a backslash meant to break the command into two lines.

    Also, please avoid sharing sensitive information such as user ID and password in the forum.

    Thank you,
    Magda

    Hi @ismar,

    Please familiarize yourself with the Linux CLI in order to enhance your learner experience and to increase your chances of successfully completing this Kubernetes course.

    On the LFD259 page of the Linux Foundation training catalog:

    This course is ideal for developers who are looking to gain skills in Kubernetes application development. Students should be familiar with the Linux command line, programming languages like Python, Node.js or Go, and have a basic understanding of cloud native application concepts and architectures.

    Regards,
    -Chris
