Mallard ECE 290: Computer Engineering I - Spring 2007 - ECE 290: L. .. .. 1 of 7 4/20/2007 3:56 AM ECE 290: LAB #1 ECE 290: LAB #1 Introduction to UNIX 1 TUTORIAL 1.1 Introduction This is a step-by-step example intended to give you a basic introduction to the engineering workstations, some simple UNIX operating system commands, and file editing. You should refer to the EWS Unix and Linux Workstation Manual (available online at while completing this assignment. The EWS User Guide (available online at provides information such as lab locations, hours, and answers to many other ews-related questions. As a student in the College of Engineering, you already have an EWS account. If you don't have your account information, you must ask the operator on duty for assistance. If you need an account, go to the ECE 290 Homepage , click on the "Difficulties with EWS accounts?" link on the left side of the page, and follow the instructions. Note: In this tutorial example, you should only type the text displayed in italics . 1.2 Logging In Move the mouse around. This will turn on the display. The machine should display the prompt "login:" in the center of the screen. If the "login:" prompt is not displayed after moving the mouse, contact the monitor on duty. The lack of a login prompt is usually due to the previous user not logging out of the workstation properly or the machine not being turned on. At this point, enter your login name and hit return. Next enter your AD password and hit return. The system will not display the password. Every time you use the workstations you will first need to login by typing your login name and your password. The EWS machines use your Active Directory (AD) password to log you in. If you need to change your EWS password, click on the "Change EWS Account Password" link on the EWS homepage . (available online at Be sure to press the < Return > key at the end of every line. After you login you will see an xterm window on the screen with several icons along the right hand side of the screen. The xterm window can accept UNIX commands and allows you to run programs. It is permissible (and usually helpful)to have more than one xterm running at one time. When you type commands in this window the shell interprets them and invokes the proper program. When you are using multiple windows, you must be sure that the cursor is in the window that you are working in.
