Linux in labs
From winter 2002 there is dual OS boot with Windows 7 and Linux on all PC
of CVT FIT. For Linux, we use CentOS distro with added SW where necessary.

Basic work with Linux
- Starting the system
after start/restart of the PC the dialog fo OS selection is shown. Yuo can
choose Windows 7 or Linux. Last entered value will be saved as default for
newxt system start. For linux you can login with your unix account (the
same as for servers eva or kazi).
Swith between text and graphic mode is with
CTRL-ALT-Fn where n is number of console. 1 is for graphical
session, 2-5 is for text one.
In text mode, login screen looks like this:
CentOS release 7 (Core)
Kernel 4.4.147 on an x86_64
You can then enter you login name and after
enter your unix password. Login shell is stared and you will see prompt
If you need more information about the shell, use manual pages via man bash.
- Finishing your work
If you need to leave the machine, logout (with commands exit or logout)
and do not restart or switch off the machine.
- After login
After login you get your home directory from eva
or kazi. All restrictions for file sizes, count and total disk space
occupied apply here the same as on these servers. You can use some disk
space on merlin server mapped to /pub on all machines. The
/pub/tmp is available for everybody, but cleaned up after some time
of not being used.
For maintenance, data sharing etc, there is linux server
merlin.fit.vutbr.cz. If servers shared drive mapped on /pub
and SVN/GIT repos for school projects.
