What packages do I need?
Fedora 17 x64
less .bashrc (I am in a home directory)
bash: less: command not found
tar is not found, seems a lot of basic commands are not found.
This server is an Amazon EC2 server image of Fedora 17. Anyone know what packages I need to install to place these common commands back on the server?
Thanks in advance!!
Even the command "man" is not found. I really don't want to try to do a complete rebuild. I have this server as my first in the EC2 cloud and it will be our Corporate Web/Forum and NameServer.
It looks like your $PATH is out of sorts. Chances are everything you need is already on your computer. You will need to edit the PATH environment variable in .bash_profile to make the change permanent.
I'm guessing this is root. You should be able to reset your $PATH temporarily at the command line with
There are other places that the PATH is set, but this is most likely where the problem lies. A brand new user should come up working fine. If it doesn't something is amiss in /etc/profile or elsewhere.
most commands are only usable by "root"
but not all
i am guessing you edited the file /ect/profile
fedora splits up some programs into the "/bin" and /sbin
sbin will be in the root account $PATH
but NOT the normal user -- there is NO program in there that a normal user can use
however in your normal user home folder there is a hidden file " .bash_profile"
/usr/bin ans /bin should be in that
it is missing things -- a few :::::
so this install is a disk image of some other computer
and just dropped onto a new and different computer ?
or something else ?
Come to find out the commands did not exist??
yum install less tar man-db
did the trick, apparently whomever created the image felt these were not required files???
Thanks for your help
