→PART 1 - Installing Your Linux Distribution
:#Regardless of the Linux distribution that is used for this course, these lab will be using and referring to the current version of '''Centos7''' (Graphical Desktop) for our main Linux machine. When creating your VM, refer to the '''Details / Minimum Requirements''' section above for assistance.
:#Install Centos7 VM selecting the default partitions. When you have finished the installation of Centos7, you may proceed to the next step.
Evaluation Scripts|Each '''Part''' (within an 'Investigation) is referred to as a '''Unit'''. Each Unit will require that the student download and run a '''Unit Evaluation Script''', which provides the OPS435 student "real-time feedback" of their completed work.<br>This feedback is not considered to be perfect or fool-proof; however, it may provide feedback (hints) in case a student gets stuck or experiences an error when performing administration tasks or when creating their Python scripts. These unit evaluation scripts can also be used to confirm that the student's Python script is on the right track, and provide a consistent record of their Python scripting progress throughout their labs.}}</blockquote>
