head: command not found
Hello. I have an Acer Aspire One netbook running on Linpus Linux (Fedora 8.6).
I'm trying to install some apps by running .sh files, but every time I get "head: command not found"
I've checked in usr/bin and there is a HEAD, in capitals. I've tried changing it into low (head) but then I get that the option -n is unknown, so I have assumed they are not the same.
Is there any way I can include the command "head" in the system?
thank you in advance for your help.
Hello jalvaro, welcome to LQ,
Linpus is not a fullfeatured Linux distribution. You should install a more recent distribution instead.
In order to help you, could you please open a terminal and post the output of
*And no, running lspci ain't gonna fix any of that ;-p
Great!!! That worked. I found, downloaded and force installed a Fedora 8 coreutils.rpm and now I have a beautiful "head" command in my usr/bin, and I've been able to install almost what I wanted.
Thanks a lot for your help. Anyway, I'll look for than new linpus to see if I can upgrade.
By the way, here is where I found the Fedora 8 repos in case anyone as outdated as I am needs them:http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/
All I have to do now is to find out why Acrobat reader doesn't work although it tells me it is installed,but that is another issue...
PD: Linpus 1.7 is a 64 bit, and my processor is a 32 bit one, so I cannot upgrade. I think mine must be the old linpus 9, 32 bit and completely outdated now, but working perfectly for me (apart from the reader problem).
Thanks again for your help.
