Unix operating system, Operating System

A working Ubuntu Linux operating system.  You can use a Live-CD to complete this assignment.

Create an empty text file named assignment6.txt in your home directory.

Edit this file with Vi and on the first line type your full name.

Each problem below requires you to perform a task using unix shell commands in a terminal window.

As you complete each problem, copy the output that was generated in the terminal window into the assignment6.txt file.

When you have finished, save the file and submit it to the EMS.

Do not submit a Word document, submit only a plain text file.

Do not submit screen snapshots (image files). Simply select the desired text in the terminal window and copy-paste it into the assignment6.txt file.

1. Using your Linux system, create a new directory named Jazz.  In this new directory create a file named Miles.txt that contains these three lines:

Kind of Blue

Miles Ahead

In a Silent Way

Copy this file twice, creating two new files named  Coltrane.txt and  Brubeck.txt. Use the rsync command to backup the Jazz directory to a directory named BackupMusic in the /tmp directory. Use the --stats option so the output gives complete statistics upon completion. Paste the output produced from the command into the assignment6.txt file.
