As a porting engineer, you may find the need to configure some Linux parameters or devices to be able to run your unit and system tests on the ported application. We include this content to provide you with some technical perspective on Linux system administration. It presents differences in system administration tasks between Solaris and Linux, but as a reference, it will be as useful for AIX and HP-UX as well.
