Yahoo Interview unanswered questions

Hi guys,

please help me get the answers of these questions which I faced in an interview @ Yahoo

1. I want to " ls " few million files, certainly I cannot do so because ls has some restriction in KBs, how can I do it alternatively.

2. Change the system in such a way that while booting up, Linux shows the message such as starting the httpd etc.. , but in actual it is shutting down the daemon or anything else.

3. when I am entering username and password at login promt, the same screen is getting returned without any error, what could be the issue ?

wanted to post more questions, but it is enuf for this thread.Smilie

Hi gauravsharma29,

Normally, we do not answer job interview questions here; as it is a for of "cheating" or at least could be considered so by the company, in this case Yahoo.
