This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Using IRC to say hello in the group

Lots of people use Internet Relay Chat (IRC). When learning Linux you'll have questions. There are lots of people in chatrooms around the world whome you can ask questions, and who will hopefully be able to point you in the right direction.

There is an irc channel on freenode you can join #p2pu-linux-intro, a possible space for us to organize, discuss, share.

Your task is to come in to the chatroom and say "Hello, World!"



We need to link to tutorials on the different ways of doing this:

Using GUI's

Using the Bash Shell Script (command line)

Staying connected by using Screen and detaching and reattaching whilst on a server
