Hints for the Linuxzoo tutorials:

  • To set the terminal type to vt100 (i.e. PC): after logging in to the telnet window, type "export TERM=vt100".
  • If you don't like the colours in vi, change the alias so that vi is used instead of vim (alias vi ='vi').

    Other hints:

    For the first two weeks, there are two different types of tutorials:
  • For the Unix tutorials 1 and 2 use "telnet telnet.dcs.napier.ac.uk" or go through the Programs Menu (School of Computing, Unix Tools) to "Telnet SoC". Use your normal username/password to login.
  • For the Linuxzoo tutorials use the linuxzoo website.
