Join Grant McWilliams for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Linux: Files and Permissions.
- [Instructor] In this course, we will be using Windows to run a CentOS 7 virtual machine in VirtualBox. Don't worry if you're using Mac or Linux as your host OS, though. Both will work fine. You may also want to have high-speed internet for doing Linux OS software updates. You will also want 10 to 15 gigabytes of disk space for the Linux virtual machine. If you took my previous course, "Linux: Installation and Overview," you can continue using that CentOS 7 virtual machine. If you didn't, you can use a standard CentOS 7 server with GUI installation.
This means that, while installing CentOS, you'll want to choose "Server with GUI" on the Software Selection screen. While installing, you will also want to make sure that the first user is an Administrator. In addition, I'd recommend taking my other courses, titled "Linux: System Information and Directory Structure Tools," where we cover using VI, and "Linux: User and Group Management," as we'll be creating users and groups in this course.
