Quick Tips to Find Files on Linux File System

Monday, February 05, 2007

One of the first hurdles that every Linux newbie working on Command Line Interface (CLI) bumps into is finding files on the file system. Administrators who switch from Windows environment are so much used to the click-n-find mentality that discovering files via Linux CLI is painful for them. This tutorial is written for those friends who work on Linux and don’t have the luxury of Graphical User Interface (GUI).
As the description says, this is a great guide to anyone new to the Linux CLI. The tutorial talks mainly about the "locate" and "find" commands, and how they can be used to their maximum potential. Check it out @ SecGuru.

Hey, please post out about the SC Computers & Technology Expo on the 23rd of Feb. Hope you and your friends can make it. I'm seeing 2007 as the year of Open Source and amazed how fast the Linux desktops are surpassing the others. I'll be showing a tri-boot of FC6, OpenSuse, and Ubuntu.
