        Pretty fun as a quiz, got them all except netstat, I would use nmap, and I would have to look up its arguments – I don't use the functionality often at all.

        With the "how would you mount a usb drive you had just plugged in" I would add "dmesg | tail" to get the device name first.

          That's so basic that everybody who uses a Linux should already got know them, but now there are hundreds of new idiots who not fail on the first test on job interview.

          Thanks, good job man.

            Have you shared any video explaining about Lun/san related stuff from the OS, LInux?

                autor is obviously just amateur, and trying to look like he knows much

                  I'm able to answer to all of these questions. Does this mean that I'm good at linux

                    Thank you, I memorized them all.

                      I knew all the answers to these questions and the background behind them. Interviewers are asking far more complex questions. Example, How do you setup a SAN, either Fibre Channel or iSCSI, and name the steps! Another questions is how to you shrink a LVM file system? This is a trick question based on the file system type you're using. How do you configure an Apache Tomcat server with load-balancing and name the three key files? What setting in the Apache Tomcat will set the default in the Apache Tomcat cluster should one serverlet fail? You get the idea.

                          Good video – Thought I was rather experienced in bash, but the du command was new to me. I was using a separate package for the same functionality. Good to see there's a built in package for that.

                            Thanks for the helpful video! I am currently working on getting a LPIC-1 certification. However, I feel like that I still need to spend on VMs (Ubuntu and CentOS) at home for more practice to figure out how to use those commands (I probably don't have to know ALL the commands, but who knows?) Even if I have a LPIC-1 cert. I would still need to learning more. I'm really desperately trying to do my best by using linux more often, but I find myself that I rarely use terminal because I just don't know what to do else with it. I really want to have more experience, so I can find somewhere to work for my next job in the future (I'm also deaf and cannot speak since American Sign Language is my primary langauge, but I can see and read what I work on…. Any thoughts? Advice??

                              great tip! I'm interested with the bottom bar that shows resources info, how you get that?
