In this, the first course of the series, we provide an overview of the SUSE Linux operating system options for both the Community and Enterprise versions. We also learn about the structure of SUSE Linux’s filesystem and file types. Then we’ll explore the SUSE Linux shell, environment, available help, and a sizable number of commands for distinct purposes.

We finish the course with a section on editing with the Vim editor and recommend the next steps for those pursuing the full SUSE Certified Administrator in Enterprise Linux 15 exam and certification.

What you will need

  • This course is not designed to be an introduction to the underlying Linux topics contained therein. It is to help the attendee understand the weird and very specific way that SUSE does it's versions of Linux. Those relatively new to foundational Linux concepts should take the LPI Linux Essentials or Linux+ courses to brush up on the fundamentals.
