    Installing Packages From Source

    The majority of gnu/linux source code files come as compressed tar files. mypackage.tar.gz anotherpackage.tar.bz2, somethingelse.tar.xz or even thingy.tgz You will have to download these files, then uncompress them, then untar them.

    tail utility doesn't work as expected

    The files in /proc aren't always "normal" files. Normally you don't "tail" a process. You want to tail output from a file (usually one that has streaming input). tail -f /opt/mylogfile.log is probably what you want to do here. Every time a process is restarted it will have a different...

    M.2 SSD issues, my first multi boot system, still rather new.

    Most of my systems run m.2 type NVME drives. Never had any problems with them. No special setup, no special drivers, they just work. What is the output of fdisk -l (lowercase L)

    Reserving ip address on DHCP Server

    There are a couple of ways to do this. The easiest would be to delete the /var/lib/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases file from time to time. Then do a restart of the dhcpd service.

    Reserving ip address on DHCP Server

    In this case, if the clients are out of your control, I would set the lease time to a pretty long time. In your dhcpd.conf file you have something that looks like this... # Sample configuration file for ISC dhcpd # # option definitions common to all supported networks... option domain-name...

    Reserving ip address on DHCP Server

    Which dhcp server are you using? dhcpd? dnsmasq? How many servers are you trying to do at once? Ideas... make the dhcp lease time very long. dhcpd lets you set this for up to 135 years. Usually the lease will get give out the same address as the last lease had for that MAC. If you aren't...

    How to check history commands 2-3 days older in ubuntu?

    A few comments about this. "Most" (not all) distros keep history since the last reboot. However the scroll-back buffer in your console/terminal may truncate the output. Some distro's rotate the history every so often, but you can change this. Another thing to keep in mind, is not every has...

    Linux certifed professionals

    I would agree the RHCE (RedHat) is probably the most valuable. I am RHCE myself. Over the last 25 years or so I've worked for a dozen different IT companies. The vast majority of them are Redhat/CentOS shops. Depending on which website you believe they own over 90% of the Linux server...

    Driver Updates in Linux Kernel Updates?

    That's kind of a trick question. As a rule, "major version" updates do. from 4.4.1 to 4.5.1 would. 5.5.2 to 5.6.2 would. However minor versions typically do not. They only patch bugs and do security patches for existing drivers. 4.4.10 to 4.4.11 only has patches and bug fixes for...

    WiFi Connection

    which desktop GUI? You likely have a "network settings" application somewhere, depending on which desktop you run. If you just run a console, we can do that also.
