About the group[edit]

The Linux Systems Administration Study Group (LSG) has been created in direct relation to the SF-LUG group and other related Linux events.

  • Share and practice skills for Linux System Administration and hack on any and all things Linux/FOSS.
  • Emphasis is on everyone being welcome
  • We encourage new people of all user levels to join in.
  • We also encourage users/hackers/developers of any, and all, operating systems who are interested in Linux.

When[edit]

When is this study group? Now on Thursdays from 15:00 to 17:00

Meeting time and location[edit]

  • We are now meeting in a location offsite from the Space, but in SF, on Thursdays from 15:00-17:00.
  • We now meeting at SECRET LOCATION. email bigsack@gmail.com for the coordinates.
  • For announcements, check out the Noisebridge-Discuss list.

Our Current Focus[edit]

  • We'll be setting up various networking equipment (server,switch, router, gateway, etc.) in two different rooms at the new location (as time provides) as well as starting other study topics.
  • We'll be moving a box with existing server and routing software from one room to another room and connecting it to their network and securing it.
  • This will be done as it would be in an occupational scenario giving two rooms internet via eth_ and wlan_ (i.e., establishing full connectivity via hardwire/wireless.)

Past Bash Shell Scripting for Linux Systems Administrators[edit]

In early 2012 the study group focused on shell scripting in Bash. The class was very small, but has grown ever since. Here is a shell script that makes shell scripts. Can you explain every detail on every line?

The shell scripters were meeting and working through their code on a line by line basis. This article on redirection is a great read as a followup to the past 2012-02-21 meeting. One of the shell scripters put out this good meta-guide for learning the Command Line and for creating more advanced shell scripting in Bash. There are also the most recent The Linux Command Line book and Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide v6.6.19 available as PDF downloads as well.File:Sack1.jpg File:Sack2.jpg File:Sack3.jpg File:Sack4.jpg File:Sack5.jpg File:Sack6.jpg File:Sack7.jpg File:Sack8.jpg
