Unformatted text preview: All the programs for this course will be graded in the Linux environment, so at a minimum, you will need to be able to test and debug your programs with the University's Linux machines, and we recommend doing all your development on Linux to save a lot of hassle. Where To Find Linux Machines The most straightforward way to access a Linux box is to physically sit down in front of one---most of them are on North Campus. The most accessible North Campus labs are on the first floor of the CSE building (CAEN only), the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Duderstadt Center (CAEN and general campus), and in the basement and second floor of the Shapiro Library (the UGLi), and you can find more information about the labs at http://www.engin.umich.edu/caen/wls/. Office hours are in the basement lab in the UGLi and the east lab in the CSE building. Generally, ITCS ("sites") machines run only Windows. Most CAEN machines can be booted into either Windows or Linux. ITCS Most of the CAEN computers will be running Windows when you sit down at them; just reboot them and then select Linux instead of Windows at the menu that shows up. You can open a terminal by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "Open Terminal", or just look for "Terminal" in the menus. SSHing to login. If you'd rather not hike to a CAEN lab, you can use an SSH (Secure SHell) client to connect to the ITCS login servers from just about any computer with Internet access. If you installed the Blue Disc that was available at move-in in previous years, you have a program called "SSH Secure Shell" installed in the menu with the rest of the Blue Disc software. Just enter login.itd.umich.edu as the host name and then log in with your uniqname and password and you will be presented with a terminal window. If you didn't get the Blue Disc at move-in (apparently, they weren't giving it out this year), you can download the software on the disc from http://www.itd.umich.edu/bluedisc, or you can use PuTTY, a free SSH client. PuTTY is available at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html; just save it to your desktop, run it, and enter loginlinux.engin.umich.edu save it to your desktop, run it, and enter loginlinux....
