question

Question 1 You have installed a package called mathpac with yum. After a system upgrade, the package is not working correctly. Which command should you try first to get the package to work? yum remove math pac and then yum install math pac rpm -U math pac yum upgrade math pac yum update math pac
answer

yum update math pac Explanation update will insure all dependencies are met. upgrade is for some backward compatibility and considers package ‘obsoletes’. It may be removed in the future. The yum remove math pac and then yum install math pac will work, but has unnecessary steps. The rpm command is inappropriate for yum packages.
question

Question 2 You recently installed a third hard drive in your system. You need to install GRUB on the hard drive. Which command should you use? grub-install –root-directory= /boot sdO grub-install –root-directory=/boot sd1 grub-install –root-directory=/boot sd2 grub-install –root-directory= /boot sd3
answer

grub-install –root-directory=/boot sd2 Explanation Use grub-install –root-directory=/boot sd2 to install GRUB on the third hard drive. ##MARGINS=16,8,0,0##. The –root-directory option specifies the directory and hard drive where to install GRUB. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. The third hard drive is represented as sd2. sd3 represents the forth hard drive in the system.
question

Question 3 Which of the following utilities should you use if you need to extract a file from an RPM package file? createrepo rpm2cpio rpm-i rpm-e
answer

rpm2cpio Explanation Use rpm2cpio to convert RPM packages into a cpio archive. This is useful for extracting files from an RPM package without installing and searching for the specific files. createrepo creates a repository list of RPM packages stored locally or on a network. rpm -e uninstalls (i.e., erases) a package. Uninstalling packages uses the package name, not the file name. If dependencies exist, the dependent packages must first be removed. rpm -i installs a package. Use the entire package filename when installing.
question

Question 4 You are attempting to install an RPM package on your Linux system, but the system tells you that a newer package is already installed. What command will install the RPM package over the existing, installed package? rpm -ihv rpm –force rpm-e rpm –rebuilddb
answer

rpm –force Explanation The rpm –force command install the package regardless of whether, a newer version of the package is already installed, package files overwrite files from previously installed packages, or if the package replaces other installed packages. Be aware of the other rpm options: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O##. -i installs a package. Use the entire package filename when installing. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. -h prints hash marks as the package archive is unpacked. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. -v displays a verbose version of the installation. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. –rebuilddb rebuilds the database indices from the installed package headers. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. -e uninstalls (i.e., erases) a package. Uninstalling packages uses the package name, not the file name. If dependencies exist, the dependent packages must first be removed. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. –initdb creates a new database. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. –checksig checks the authenticity of the package. The option checks the packages digital signing key against the package to insure it has not been altered. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. –test tests a package for uninstalled dependencies without actually installing it. ##MARGINS= 16,0,0,0##. -v verifies that packages are free from errors. RPM only gives output when packages have errors. If errors are present, the command displays the error code and the file name. ##MARGINS= 16,0,0,0##. -q queries the computer for information about installed packages. Note: Use this with -a to list all packages and -I show the files associated with the package. ##MARGINS= 16,0,0,0##. –nodeps installs the package without checking for dependencies. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. -U updates an installed package to the newest version. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##. -F upgrades the package, but only if an earlier version currently exists on the system.
question

Question 5 Which of the following commands displays all of the shared library information for the /bin/bash executable? Idconfig -N /bin/bash Idconfig -p /bin/bash Idd /bin/bash Idd -v /bin/bash
answer

Idd -v /bin/bash Explanation Idd -v /bin/bash displays all of the shared library information for the /bin/bash executable. The Idd command displays which libraries are used by another library (i.e., library dependencies). Be aware of the following options Idd options: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O##- -y displays all information. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- –version displays the version number of Idd. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -u displays unused direct dependencies. The Idconfig reloads the library cache every time you add or remove libraries, and updates the symbolic links. Be aware of the following options Idconfig options: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O##- -N updates symbolic links, but does not update the cache. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O##- -p displays the current library cache, including all the library directories and their respective libraries.
question

Question 6 What file contains a colon, space, tab, newline, or comma-delimited list of directories in which to search for libraries? (Tip: Enter the full path to the file.)
answer

/etc/ld.so.conf Explanation /etc/ld.so.conf contains a colon, space, tab, newline, or comma-delimited list of directories in which to search for libraries. Some lines in the file begin with the include directive, which lists files that are to be included as if they were part of the part of the main file. Use the Idconfig -f command to change the configuration file from the default of /etc/ld.so.conf.
question

Question 7 Which of the following situations is most likely to cause a dependency problem? Several applications use the library /usr/lib/biglib Installing two different packages that both include /usr/lib/graphlib Upgrading the kernel from 2.4.6 to 2.4.12 Upgrading the library /usr/lib/biglib from version 1.4 to version 1.6
answer

Installing two different packages that both include /usr/lib/graphlib Explanation Installing two different packages that include the same library has the possibility of conflicting versions. Generally, upgrading a library to a higher version is not a problem. Several applications using the same library are per design and will not cause conflicts. Upgrading the kernel and staying within the same minor revision level will usually not cause conflicts.
question

Question 8 You have GRUB installed on your workstation. You need to make some permanent changes to the boot loader. What file would you edit? (Select two.) /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/grub.conf /boot/grub.conf /etc/lilo.conf /boot/boot.conf
answer

/boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/grub.conf Explanation The GRUB configuration file is /boot/grub/grub.conf or /boot/grub/menu.lst. In some distributions, the menu.lst file is a symbolic link to the grub.conf file.
question

Question 9 Which command will search for packages that have been partially installed on the system? (Tip: Enter the command as if at the command prompt.)
answer

dpkg -C Explanation The dpkg -C command searches for packages that have been partially installed on the system. The dpkg command installs Debian packages on Debian distributions.
question

Question 10 Which rpm option will perform an MD5 checksum on the myapp5.4.rpm package? (Tip: Type the command as if at the command prompt.)
answer

rpm -v myapp5.4.rpm Explanation rpm -v myapp5.4.rpm will perform an MD5 checksum on the package to verify that the myapp5.4.rpm package is free from errors. RPM only gives output when packages have errors. If errors are present, the command displays the error code and the file name.
question

Question 11 Which of the following methods should you use to configure dynamic libraries on a Linux system? (Select two.) Use the LD_LIBRARY _PATH environment variable to specify additional directories to search for library files. Modify /etc/ld.so.cache to add the path of the libraries. Edit all files with the .a filename extension. Modify /etc/ld.so.conf to add the path of the libraries.
answer

Use the LD_LIBRARY _PATH environment variable to specify additional directories to search for library files. Modify /etc/ld.so.conf to add the path of the libraries. Explanation Use the following methods for configuring dynamic libraries on a Linux system: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O##e Modify jetcjld.so.conf to add the path of the libraries. ##MARGINS= 16,O,O,O##e Use the LD_LIBRARY _PATH environment variable to specify additional directories to search for library files. /etc/ld.so.cache is a cached list of libraries found in the directories specified in /etc/ld.so.conf. The system uses this cached list instead of loading /etc/ld.so.conf every time a program runs. Static libraries have an .a filename extension and are used when shared libraries are not available.
question

Question 12 You are attempting to install an RPM package on your Linux system, but the system tells you that package has dependencies that are not installed. What rpm option will override the need to install the dependencies? (Tip: Enter the command as if at the command prompt.)
answer

rpm –nodeps Explanation The rpm –nodeps command installs the package without checking for dependencies. This is not recommended. A dependency is an application’s reliance on another package to perform correctly.
question

Question 13 Without installing an RPM package, you want to check for all of the package’s uninstalled dependencies. Which command should you use? rpm –test rpm -ihv rpm –checksig rpm-U
answer

rpm –test Explanation The rpm –test tests a package for uninstalled dependencies without actually installing it. Be aware of the other rpm options: ##MARGINS=16,8,0,0##. -i installs a package. Use the entire package filename when installing. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. -h prints hash marks as the package archive is unpacked. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. -v displays a verbose version of the installation. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. –checksig checks the authenticity of the package. The option checks the packages digital signing key against the package to insure it has not been altered. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. -U updates an installed package to the newest version. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. –rebuilddb rebuilds the database indices from the installed package headers. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. -e uninstalls (i.e., erases) a package. To uninstall packages, use the package name, not the file name. If dependencies exist, the dependent packages must first be removed. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. –initdb creates a new database. ##MARGINS= 16,0,0,0##. -v verifies that packages are free from errors. RPM only gives output when packages have errors. If errors are present, the command displays the error code and the file name. ##MARGINS= 16,0,0,0##. -q queries the computer for information about installed packages. Note: Use this with -a to list all packages and -I to show the files associated with the package. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. –nodeps installs the package without checking for dependencies. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. -F upgrades the package, but only if an earlier version currently exists on the system. ##MARGINS=16,0,0,0##. –force installs the package, regardless of whether a newer version of the package is already installed. Package files overwrite files from previously installed packages, or if the package replaces other installed packages.
question

Question 14 You are working on a Debian distribution of Linux. You want to retrieve information about the Debian package database on the system. Without any command options, which command will provide the information you need?
answer

apt-cache Explanation The apt-cache command retrieves information about the Debian package database. Be aware of the following apt-cache options: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O## -showpkg displays information about a package in the database. ##MARGINS= 16,O,O,O## -stats shows the number of packages installed, dependency information, and other package cache statistics. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## -unmet lists any missing dependencies in the package cache. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## -depends shows all of the package’s dependencies. ##MARGINS= 16,O,O,O## -pkgnames displays whether a package is installed on the system. When the package name is left off, the command shows information for all packages on the computer. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## -search searches for a package in the cache.
question

Question 15 You have previously installed package ‘mplayer’ and wish to remove it from your computer. Which of these methods is the best? Locate the files for mplayer and delete them. Run the command tar -e mplayer. Run the command erase -r mplayer. Run the command rpm -e mplayer-1.0-0.10.pre4.1.fc2.fr.i386 to uninstall mplayer.
answer

Run the command rpm -e mplayer-1.0-0.10.pre4.1.fc2.fr.i386 to uninstall mplayer. Explanation The proper method is to run the rpm -e command to uninstall the application. The tar command cannot be used to uninstall packages. There is no standard Linux command called erase. Trying to manually uninstall an application by erasing its files is not recommended
question

Question 16 Which of the following Debian package management utilities provides the front-end for APT? aptitude apt-get apt-cache dpkg
answer

aptitude Explanation aptitude is the front-end to Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) which displays a list of software packages and allows the user to interactively pick packages to install or remove. apt-get downloads and installs packages including dependencies. apt-cache retrieves information about the Debian package database. dpkg installs Debian packages on Debian distributions.
question

Question 17 You are editing the /boot/qrub/qrub.conf file as shown below. default=O timeout=5 splashimage=(hdO,O)/grub/splash.xpm.gz #hiddenmenu title Fedora (2.6.33.3-85.fc13.i686) root (hdO,O) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.i686 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg vm-lv_root rd_LVM_LV-vg_vm/ v_root rd_LVM_LV=vg_vm/lv_swap rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet initrd /initramfs-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.i686.img title Red Hat Linux (2.6.18-19.8.0.19) root (hdO,l) kernel /boot/bzlmage.2.6.18-19.8.0.19mar2009 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_vm-lv_root rd_LVM_LV=vg_vm/ lv root rd_LVM_LV=vg_vm/lv_swap rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-19.8.0custom.img.19mar09 You want GRUB to load the second operating system installed on the system as the default when the system boots. What should you do? Change the #hiddenmenu line to read hiddenmenu. Change the timeout line to read timeout=2. Change the default line to read default=1. Leave the configuration file alone, as it will already select the correct operating system.
answer

Change the default line to read default=1. Explanation Use the default line to specify the operating system that boots as the default. In this case, you should change the default line to read default=1. or default=Red Hat Linux. Either method configures GRUB to load the second operating system installed on the system as the default when the system boots. The hiddenmenu line disables/enables the menu that lists the operating system options. The timeout line sets the number of seconds GRUB waits before automatically booting the default operating system.
question

Question 18 How many logical partitions can you create on an extended partition? 1 2 Unlimited 4
answer

Unlimited Explanation You can create an unlimited amount of logical partitions on an extended partition. An extended partition is an optional partition that does not have an operating system installed on it and thus is not bootable. Extended partitions can be further subdivided into an unlimited amount of logical drives. There can be a maximum of one extended partition on a single hard disk drive.
question

Question 19 You need the Yellowdog Updater Modified (YUM) utility to check specific URLs for RPM repositories. Where should you add the URLs? Within the /etc/yum.conf file. Within the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. Within the /var/lib/rpm directory. Within the /var/usr/yum.log file.
answer

Within the /etc/yum.conf file. Explanation Add the URLs of RPM repositories to the /etc/yum.conf configuration file. The configuration file contains: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O## -URLs of RPM repositories. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## -Directories where it saves downloaded packages. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## -Locations of logs. You can also add a .repo file for each Internet repository in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. YUM uses /var/usr/yum.log as a log file to track when packages are installed, removed, or downloaded. The Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) uses a database stored at /var/lib/rpm that keeps track of all installed packages, their current status, and available updates.
question

Question 20 You need to remove an RPM package from your system. Which of the following commands could you use? (Select two.) yum search yum provides yum erase yum remove
answer

yum erase yum remove Explanation To remove an RPM package from your system using the Yellowdog Updater Modified (YUM) use: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O## – rpm erase ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## – rpm remove rpm provides displays what packages are associated with a specific file. rpm search searches all packages for a specified term.
question

Question 21 Which yum option displays whether updates are available for RPM packages? list updates update list install
answer

list updates Explanation yum list updates displays whether updates are available for packages. Use the Yellowdog Updater Modified (YUM) utility to install RPM packages, including their dependencies. yum list displays lists of packages. yum install installs a package. Use the entire package filename when installing. yum update updates RPM packages.
question

Question 22 You need to install the package apt-0.S.1Scnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386.rpm. Which commands will perform the installation? (Choose two.) rpm -Xh apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386 rpm -e apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386 tar -Uh apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386 rpm -ih apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386 rpm -Uh apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386
answer

rpm -ih apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386 rpm -Uh apt-O.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386 Explanation The commands rpm -Uh or rpm -ih will install package apt-0.S.1Scnc6-1.1.fc2.fr.i386. The command rpm -e will erase an installed package. There is no -X switch to use with rpm. Tar does not work with rpm files.
question

Question 23 You need to determine which files are associated with the metacity RPM package. What command should you use? rpm –test meta city rpm -i metacity rpm -v metacity rpm -ql metacity
answer

rpm -ql metacity Explanation rpm -ql metacity shows the files associated with the metacity package. rpm -l installs a package. Use the entire package filename when installing. rpm -V verifies that packages are free from errors by performing an MDS checksum on the package. rpm –test tests a package for uninstalled dependencies without actually installing it.
question

Question 24 Which directory contains user data for all standard users on the system? (Tip: Enter the full path to the directory.)
answer

/home Explanation The /home directory contains the user data for all users on the Linux system except for the root user account. When planning partitions, you should create a separate partition for the /home directory.
question

Question 25 You are working on a Debian distribution of Linux. You need to install a package, but you do not want to manually install all the dependencies for the package. Which command should you use? (Tip: Do not include any command options.)
answer

apt-get Explanation The apt-get command downloads and installs packages on a Debian distribution. Apt-get: ##MARGINS=16,8,O,O## – Is similar to the yum utility on an RPM distribution. ##MARGINS=16,O,O,O## – Gets its information about the application repositories from the /etc/apt/sources.list file.
