Bash


I have installed lindows(yeah, i know it sucks... you don't need to say it). But i cant juse the bash command. It sais: "Bash: command not found" or something like that. How can i install bash, or fix this problem? I think the "make" command wasn't istalled also. Anyone?

I doubt very much that bash isn't installed - it's the standard shell for almost every distro. What are you typing to get it to say that?

bash is a shell/command interpreter(DoS Lingo)
not a command.

And yes, Lindows isnt the best distro, even for learning linux.
Get Gentoo, Slackware, Redhat, Mandrake, SuSE, or another oldie/goodie mainstream distro.

Well that means that make is not installed, not that bash is not installed.

Bash: insert message here

means the message is from bash, not about bash.

Ummm, well you could download if from www.gnu.org I think. Thing is, I expect you need a C compiler installed to build it and as make isn't installed, I doubt gcc is either.

Search this site for gcc and lindows because I'd be very surprised if no one else here has had this issue.
