This is the second in a series of three courses preparing you for the LPIC-2 117-201 exam by looking in details at the objectives 117-201 and 117-202, the Linux Kernel and System Startup. Care is taken to ensure you have the latest information available as we go beyond the current objectives to look in detail at systemd and GRUB 2.
