Ubuntu Vs. CentOS/Fedora differences in command line
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 21, 2010
I am planning to have two linux home severs. One “always on” Ubuntu server with SAMBA, FTP, etc and another one CentOS/Fedora that boots up once a day, backups my Ubuntu server and shuts down. Both will be headless.
I have the Ubuntu Server up and running. Before I setup the CentOS/Fedora backup server, I would like to know:
1) how different CentOS/Fedora is from Ubuntu in terms of managing the server from command line.
2) Are the commands very different. I am willing learn a bit but is the difference so huge that it will take days for me to setup up the backup server?
3) Are the directory structures/files very different? For example, in Ubuntu I know where sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list) is it the same in CentOS/Fedora or is it the same for most part?
I know Ubuntu uses deb and CentOS/Fedora uses rpm. Other than this what else might be different. I have no experience on a rpm based linux. I am fine managing my ubuntu server from command line. I can easily setup
Need to access Linux Mint command line through Windows
location: linux.com - date: December 12, 2011
Hello. I made a big mistake. I was compiling Blender on my Linux Mint. Because some packages were not on the normal repositories. I played stupid (mainly because I was being lazy). And I add the debian.org's repository. Which was really really stupid. Because now, by default the repositories were of debian.org . So when an error prompted on the update manager I restart with the command line and I did sudo apt-get update (again I was being an idiot because those were unstable packages) And I basically switched it all to debian's repositories (I am the biggest douche on the world). So long story short I can't even login to the command line on my Mint (11 Katya). So I am on my second partition (with Windows). Posting this. What I need now is a command line on Windows so I can solve my problem. Thank you so much! *facepalm*

Restarting SquirrelMail from the command line
location: linux.com - date: July 13, 2010
I am still fairly new to Linux, although I have used it in school and have a good foundation in operating systems and programming. As part of my current job I have just taken on the role of Junior Network Administrator to do some simple modifications on our Linux Web Server to change some passwords for increased security. One of our 2 Linux servers is running fine after the password mods, but the other server is acting as our Mail Server and is using Squirrelmail as the Webmail interface. I changed the password for the one and only user on that system, and then rebooted the server and re-logged in as the user to get back to the command line - the same condition as it was in before modifying password - the new password worked fine, but now our email is down - inaccessible - whereas it was working fine before I did the change and rebooted. What do I need to do to get our Squirrelmail back online? Is there a daemon/service that needs to be activated after rebooting to enable the mail

command line alternative for "Safely Remove Drive"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 9, 2011
Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS
Is there a command line alternative to clicking on "Safely Remove Drive" in nautilus?
When I click on "Safely Remove Drive" in nautilus, the USB HDD attached (WD Elements) vanishes from the nautilus "places" list, the drive spins down, and the light on the drive dims to indicate that it is powered down.
I have tried the "umount" command as well as the "eject" command from the terminal, but they both only seem to unmount the drive, as it is still shown in the nautilus "places" list and the light on the drive stays bright.
is there another way? thanks!

Thought it'd be handy to compile a thread with online resources for new Linux users who want to learn the command line. I'll link it in my signature.
