    Thanks. We will see. This is going to be very difficult year or me (cert wise) but hopefully it will pay off with knowledge and a new job/role.

    Default Moving forward

    I have decided to move forward with my studies, despite some colorful events....

    My initial goals for the next day or so are as follows

    Update Ubuntu Desktop to 9.10 [ Done ]
    Install CentOS (this is turning into a timely task by itself, 6 iso files yuck....)
    - Configure as Radius Server
    - Configure as Syslog Server
    Read chapter 2 of Linux+ Guide
    Complete Second set of Linux+ CBTs

    Other goals maybe added as time goes on. Any one else moving forward with the Linux+

    Oh yes. Moving along with the CBT Nuggets lessons, and reviewing it all on Fedora and Debian boxes on a daily basis.

    It looks like I might be getting my RHCT first as I may have a free voucher coming my way.

    You can do a minimal install with only CD1, then when it's up and running add additional software directly from the repositories. Most the stuff on the extra CDs won't need to be installed, and anything extra you install will likely be out of date and need to be updated immediately, so this saves a lot of download time. This is good practice, too.

    Oh darn Well I downloaded everything so I guess that is something I will need to keep in mind for next time. I was more than a little pissed to find out that you cannot install directly from the live cd (without some *nix-fu on the disc) so I was like whatever. Oh well.

    I was gone all day yesterday so I was only able to get back to this a few hours ago. I have Centos Installed and my next step is to get it set up for remote administration (ssh or vnc), ntp, set up as a radius server/syslog server and set up for file sharing. I eventually want to set up NIS and have another one of my machines as a domain controller but that is the future.

    Today I need to make it through the first few linux+ cbt nuggets and chapter 2 of the sygress linux+ guide

    Default Linux+ Cert

    I will be gutted if the Linux+ is on a 3 year renewal basis (yet to be confirmed !!??), this is the first cert that i am going for. Have got the Syngress Comptia Linux+ Certification Study Guide (Exam XK0-003) Brian Barber and read it from back to front and reviewed all sections and done all questions over and over with a decent success rate. *Note* for anyone that is buying the book, i found lots of misprints in the book so be careful.

    Can anyone recommend any other recources for the XK0-003 ??

    I keep waiting for the Comptia Linux+ Study Guide: 2009 to be released but it keeps getting delayed !

    My First post btw.

    It sounds like you have done a lot already. I'd say practice the lab scenarios in the book to reinforce what you've learned.

    COMPTia reversed themselves and any certs earned before end of 2010 will be lifetime.
    I'm taking my Sec+ tomorrow and have MCTS 70-640,642 in coming months. Planning to start learning Linux. Used it a very little back in late 90's. I had origionally experimented on unix back in the 80's and am totally out of my element with LINUX.
    Which VM is better for installing different versions of LINUX? I would think it'd be Virtualbox. I used that a lot studying for my MCTS:70-620. I'm currently mostly using VMWare workstation studying for the 640,642.

    VirtualBox will work fine for studying Linux+.

    I 2nd this. I actual use physical machines and virtual box but virtual box would be enough. I need to get back on this but I have been pretty busy with my job search. I do plan to get this done soon however.

    I accept with information: This should be way more than enough to get me through the Linux+ and set a good foundation for the RHCT, SCSA, LPIC and beyond. Hopefully by then there will be some stuff out for the new L+.

    Default XK0-003 Release Date

    Just been to the Comptia site and they have delayed the XK0-003 for at least another month. End of April now.

    Default Oh! CompTIA decided to upgrade?!

    And here's probably why: an announcement about an agreement between LPI and CompTIA.

    "Under this program, CompTIA will adopt LPI's Level One certification
    exams (LPIC-1) for its CompTIA Linux+ certification. This innovative
    program will enable successful candidates to earn both the new "CompTIA
    Linux+ Powered by LPI" certification and the existing LPIC-1 certification
    ."

    and then some:

    "Under the terms of the agreement CompTIA will adopt LPIC-1 exams
    (LPI-101 and LPI-102) for the new CompTIA Linux + Powered by LPI
    certification. CompTIA LX0-101 and LX0-102 exams will be offered at the
    same price as LPIC-1 exams. Consequently, those passing the CompTIA
    Linux+ powered by LPI exams will qualify for both the CompTIA Linux+
    Powered by LPI certification and the LPIC-1 certification.


    The new CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI certification will not be
    available in Japan. The current CompTIA Linux+ exam will retire in Japan
    on April 30, 2010.

    More information about acquiring dual certification status can be
    obtained by contacting LPI at comptia@lpi.org and at CompTIA at
    linuxplus@comptia.org
    "

    From the LPI mailing list.
    It boils down to tearing Linux+ in two parts, just like LPI exams and to passing Linux+ = getting LPIC-1 as well. CompTIA evidently chops Linux+ off of its cert list. Why going for the surrogate ("Powered by LPI") when you can go for the original? What would be the motivation? Available vendor- certified prep literature maybe? But will CompTIA finally release its new Linux+ guide?

    So does this mean If I pass my LPIC-1 (as it stands now) would I earn the L+? For current holders of the LPIC-1 would this be retroactive? This is pretty neat though, and hopefully this furthers the popularity of the LPIC exams.

    I don't think it works that way, it seems that (as it is explained, but you may further your inquiries by mailing your questions to the emails shown) you'll have to pass either the new two-part Linux+ exam or the two-part LPI exam to win LPI-1. By going the Linux+ path, you'll get both LPIC-1 and Linux+. It is unclear if you can get Novell's CLA once you get LPIC-1 via Linux+ though. In that case, Linux+ is a better bargain than the original (haaah!)since you'll get 3 in 1...
    Current Linux+ holders? Oh heavens, I can understand the rage...

    This is sweet! I can't wait to get the official study guide, but I won't be surprised if CompTIA changed the release date again. I recently bought Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide 5th Edition book written by Wale Soyinka. Gonna crack it when my summer break begins. I'm still not getting how their merger systems work, but hopefully they will clear it up more later for us. Who's down for CompTIA LX0-101 and LX0-102 too?

    Depending on if my current situation changes (hoping it does) I will probably go for this as well. I need to get a linux cert to get out of a few classes for my degree so I will have to do at some point. The sooner the better.

    This is getting complicated. I wonder how it affects people who passed the Linux+ 2009 beta (XK1-003). Hopefully I get credit for LPIC-1 and the CLA!

    I am not Linux+ so please accept my recommendations with a grain of salt.

    Download Sun Virtual Box.
    Download an ISO of Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSUSE use these to help prepare you for your test.

    Good books to help you include anything by Mike Myers. Often Sybex books are hit or miss with Comptia certifications, I cannot speak to the Linux+. Linux Administrator Handbook (2nd Edition) which I use everyday at work. Linux cookbook for explinations for required commands and material within the OS.

    Understanding the concepts of Linux should allow you to at the very least muddle through the test. Anything beyond that, look at specific study material for the certification version.

    For some final information look here for a concise man page online: Linux Command Directory: Index

    Good find on this. I planned to use centos and ubuntu server for my studies. I already use ubuntu as my main server os and I want to move from WinVista to Ubuntu as my main laptop os.
