Tricky Linux Interview Questions and Answers for freshers and experienced pdf

51. What could possibly be the problem when a command that was issued gave a different result from the last time it was used?
One highly possible reason for getting different results from what seems to be the same command has something to do with case sensitivity issues. Since Linux is case sensitive, a command that was previously used might have been entered in a different format from the present one. For example, to lists all files in the directory, you should type the command ls, and not LS. Typing LS would either result in an error message if there is no program by that exact name exist, or may produce a different output if there is a program named LS that performs another function.

52. What are the contents in /usr/local?
It contains locally installed files. This directory actually matters in environments where files are stored on the network. Specifically, locally-installed files go to /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/lib, etc.). Another application of this directory is that it is used for software packages installed from source, or software not officially shipped with the distribution.

53. How do you terminate an ongoing process?
Every process in the system is identified by a unique process id or pid. Use the kill command followed by the pid in order to terminate that process. To terminate all process at once, use kill 0.

54. How do you insert comments in the command line prompt?
Comments are created by typing the # symbol before the actual comment text. This tells the shell to completely ignore what follows. For example: “# This is just a comment that the shell will ignore.”

55. What is command grouping and how does it work?
You can use parentheses to group commands. For example, if you want to send the current date and time along with the contents of a file named OUTPUT to a second file named MYDATES, you can apply command grouping as follows: (date cat OUTPUT) > MYDATES

  1. Hallo,

    Great post. Well thought out. This piece reminds me when I was starting out Linux Interview Questions and Answers driver interview questions and answers after graduating from college.

    I'm still new to Linux and haven't used it in a long time. Right now, I have Mint 12 on my computer and I know it is not supported any longer. What I need to know is what should I upgrade to? Can I do it online or do I need to get a cd? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I want to get back into Linux.
    Zombie is a process state when the child dies before the parent process. In this case the structural information of the process is still in the process table.
