Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    According to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS), what is the path to the Linux kernel source and may be a symbolic link to the real Linux source code? (Please specify the full path with no version information.)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is /usr/src/linux. According to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS), the path to the Linux kernel source is typically located in the /usr/src directory. Within that directory, the linux folder represents the Linux kernel source code. It is important to note that this path may be a symbolic link to the actual location of the Linux source code.

    After installing a compiled kernel, it can not find any modules that are needed to be loaded. What make target was likely missed while installing the kernel?

    Explanation
    The "modules_install" make target was likely missed while installing the kernel. This target is responsible for installing the kernel modules, which are necessary for the kernel to load the required modules at runtime. Without running this target, the installed kernel will not be able to find any modules that need to be loaded, resulting in the issue mentioned in the question.

  • 3. 

    A new kernel version needs to be compiled to use a new feature. If the old kernel configuration file is available, which make target creates a configuration file for the new kernel based on the configuration of the old kernel?

    Explanation
    The make target "oldconfig" creates a configuration file for the new kernel based on the configuration of the old kernel. This means that it takes the existing configuration file and updates it with any new options or features that are available in the new kernel version. This allows the user to easily migrate their existing configuration to the new kernel version without having to manually go through and configure each option themselves.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    After configuring a new kernel, what file under /usr/src/linux/ contains the configuration?

    Explanation
    The file ".config" under the directory "/usr/src/linux/" contains the configuration after configuring a new kernel.

  • 5. 

    A database application requires a maximum shared memory segment (shmmax) of 2GB (2147483648 Bytes). Which configuration file should be modified to set this kernel parameter permanently? (Specify the full name of the file, including path.)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is /etc/sysctl.conf. This file is used to configure kernel parameters in a Linux system. By modifying this file, the shmmax parameter can be set to the desired value of 2GB, ensuring that the maximum shared memory segment meets the requirements of the database application.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which command is used to unload a single module currently loaded by the kernel without unloading any modules that it depends upon? (Specify the command with or without path information)

    Explanation
    The command "rmmod" is used to unload a single module currently loaded by the kernel without unloading any modules that it depends upon. This command allows for the removal of a specific module without affecting other modules that may be dependent on it.

  • 7. 

    Which directory contains the system-specific udev rule files? (Specify the absolute path including the directory name)

    Explanation
    The system-specific udev rule files are located in the /etc/udev/rules.d directory. This directory contains the configuration files that define how the system should handle devices and their corresponding events. These rules are used by the udev daemon to automatically create and manage device nodes in the /dev directory, based on the events generated by the kernel.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which keyword is used in the /etc/inittab file to define the SysV-init default system runlevel?

    Explanation
    The keyword used in the /etc/inittab file to define the SysV-init default system runlevel is "initdefault". This keyword is used to specify the default runlevel that the system should boot into. The value assigned to this keyword determines which set of processes and services are started during the system startup process.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Please enter the complete path to the main SysV init process configuration file.

    Explanation
    The main SysV init process configuration file is located at /etc/inittab.

  • 10. 

    What is the full path to the directory which contains the scripts (or links to the original scripts) to run while the system boots to SysV-init runlevel 2?

    Explanation
    The full path to the directory which contains the scripts (or links to the original scripts) to run while the system boots to SysV-init runlevel 2 is /etc/rc2.d. This directory is part of the Linux system's initialization process and holds the scripts that are executed during the boot process when the system enters runlevel 2.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which file tells GRUB the paths of the filesystem partitions in both Linux format and in the GRUB syntax? (Specify the file name only with no path information)

    Explanation
    The file "device.map" is used by GRUB to determine the paths of the filesystem partitions in both Linux format and in the GRUB syntax. It contains a mapping between the device names used by the Linux kernel and the corresponding device names used by GRUB. This file is important for GRUB to correctly locate and boot the operating system installed on different partitions.

    Which command turns an existing ext2 filesystem non-destructively into an ext3 filesystem? (Specify ONLY the command without any path or parameters.) 

    Explanation
    The command "tune2fs" is used to modify the filesystem parameters of an ext2 filesystem. In this case, it can be used to convert an existing ext2 filesystem to an ext3 filesystem without causing any data loss. This command allows for the non-destructive transition between the two filesystem types, enabling the additional features and benefits of ext3 while preserving the existing data on the filesystem.

    The users of the local network complain that name resolution is not fast enough. Enter the command, without the path or any options, that shows the time taken to resolve a DNS query.

    Explanation
    The command "time nslookup" is used to measure the time taken to resolve a DNS query. By running this command, the system will execute the nslookup command and display the time it takes for the DNS query to be resolved. This can help identify if there are any delays or performance issues with the name resolution process, which could be causing the slow response time for the users of the local network.
