Hands-on Linux Project

The progress report below is updated every minute, was last updated 2017-05-14 12:02:02:

Get the due dates from your class' web page. A good looking progress report will have no red marks for components on their due date.

This is an exercise for working at the command line on a Linux server and using the vi editor. Please do not edit these files on a Windows or Mac desktop and copy them to the server. Facility at the command line is an entry-level skill for many situations in IT.

Part 1 -- Posting your Topic

For Part 1 of the HOL project make a directory named Outlines in your home directory and edit the topic for your brief on the 1st line of a file named Brief1 in the Outlines directory. Nothing else is required for Part 1. The file should be 'plain text', with no HTML.

Set the permissions on the Outlines directory to 700 and the file Brief1 to 600. Check the progress page to make sure Outlines and Brief1 are in the right place with the right permissions. The progress page is updated one second past every minute. Enter 'date' at the command line to check the time.

Part 2 -- Posting Your Outline and References

Part 2 of the project is to find references for your brief, organize them, make an outline for the brief, and use vi to key the outline and references into the file Brief1.

Brief1 should be a plain-text file, should not have any html, will only be read by you and the instructor. It should be organized by indenting to show the 'levels of the outline'.

When you've completed the research, edit the file Brief1 and add a nicely indented outline for your tech market brief, starting in line 3, leaving the 2nd line empty. Single-space between each entry in the outline, leaving no 'blank line' between the lines of your outline. Use spaces to make indentations to structure the outline. After the single-spaced outline, double-space to leave an empty line and list your references. If you have done this properly, your feedback below will show your topic, the first entry in your outline, and the first reference in your list.

Part 3 -- Making the 3-page website:

Please find and comply with all the specs posted on the class' page for the HOL/Tech Brief project. Make a valid skeleton of a website first, then pitch your brief in standards-compliant html and css.

Here's how to make the red asterisks go away.

  • Make a directory named 'web' (all lower case) in your home directory if you haven't already done it. Set it's permissions to 701, drwx-----x
  • Use vi to create and edit index.html in your web directory. Verify that it shows up as index.html in your progress report below.
  • Use vi to edit a file named Brief1.html in your web directory. This page will hold the web version of your technical market brief.
  • Set the permissions of any web pages, css, graphics, or other files in the web directory to 604.

Grading:

Get any questions answered in class. 'Snapshots' of this page, the contents of your home directory, and your history at the command line will taken after the deadline and used to score the timeliness and quality of each component at the time it is due.
