Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is probably an easy problem but i can't figure it out.
I put my /home/myhome directory on a different partition of my disk (called /gamma, which is mounted atomaticly) and linked it with a symbolic link into /home. (ln -s)
everything is fine so far, home behaves as if it was still on the root-partition.
but: i cannot execute shell-scripts from there anymore.
-bash: ./foo.sh: bin/bash: bad interpreter: Permission denied
i changed the owner of the symbolic link but with no success with the scripts.
besides i can runn scripts from /tmp which is on the root partition. somehow bash canīt access my home directory on the other partition via the symbolic link.
sorry about writing so much. if anyone has an idea, i would be quite happy.
assuming "-bash: ./foo.sh: bin/bash: bad interpreter: Permission denied" is a typo, then you need to check the execute permissions on the file, if not somethign seems to be up with your script, maybe you're using relative file paths for the shebang at the start? it does ask for bin/bash not /bin/bash...
ok, but the execute rights for the scripts are all right.
what gives me a cue is that i can actually run the scripts from my home with:
# bash ./foo.sh
but not with
# ./foo.sh which i can from any directory on the root partition.
somehow bash doesn't reach on my /gamma partition via the symbolic link??
how can i change this and be able to run scripts from home without explicitely calling the bash?
No such file or directory
