how to download/install/configure squid on fedora 14
i am currently trembled today,
i am asking for help. Please help me with this
how to download squid, install and configure.
it's because this is our laboratory in our class
i don't have any idea it's because
our teacher teach ubuntu so i don't know on fedora.
i try but i failed.
please, any help is really appreciated.
First of all, Fedora 14 is at EOL (end of life) and you should upgrade to the latest release if you want to stay up to date. That being said, there are a lot of guides and howtos to be found on the internet. Pick one and go with that one. If you encounter problems when following a guide, that's when you turn to us for answers. The fact that your teacher is using/teaching Ubuntu doesn't mean he does not know how to use Fedora. Your teacher should be your first go to person. He's there to help you and teach you. Remember that he might also be a user on these forums.
sir here's the situation, in our lab. our teacher tolled us to install any kind of distro, so i choose fedora 14.
because, i tried installing fedora 16 but, it did not work. So i downgrade cause i think is't not compatible with the
spec of hardware. I tried asking my teacher but he only said, use "google" sir i tried a lot of research but all i see
is configuration.and the last, i see linuxquestions website. honestly I cannot start because i don't even know how to download squid. sir please help me I think your the only one who can help me.
A step by step procedure, first command on how to download squid, using terminal then install, and last configure.
Sir i'm new to Linux, and I really don't know because, Ubuntu command is different from Fedora. like (sudo apt-get squid) but in fedora (yum) i tried other TUT but i fail. Sir that's really i want to know. our end of class is very near and this is the last of our drills. Sir please, try to understand my English, cause i'm not really good with it.
Sir i tried already
yum install squid
ackage refresh list
I will try all this stuff,
when I reboot to fedora,
you know what this is what i am talking about
because i don't know all of this command
how to install any kind of distro.
how to use basic command like :cd
mv, how to become a root user,
the ls and etc.
thank you so much for help.
As already indicated we will not give you step by step information. What will you learn when we provide you with all the commands to get you up and running. I don't see the logic in your choice of distro either. You know that your teacher uses Ubuntu, yet you choose an 'end of life' version of a distribution that's completely different from Ubuntu AND that's considered not to be for the 'newbies' since it's bleeding edge and prone the occasional error. In my opinion you have two options:
- Change distro to a Debian based so that you can consult with your teacher / use what he already explained
- Stick with Fedora, but upgrade to the latest and start reading and learning on your own.
There are a lot of websites dedicated to the yum package manager, you can even start with the man page for yum which will tell you a lot. You even mention that you don't know the basic commands like cd, mv, su, ls and others. So first start by reading and learning. Here are some useful links:
Again, don't expect us to do your homework for you or provide you with step by step information. You should start reading, learning and practicing. When you encounter some error that you cannot explain or that your teacher cannot clarify, that's when you turn to us.
yum -y install squid
and squid was downloaded and and successfully installed
thanks for all your help suggestion to use google.

-acl lab src 192.168.0.0/24
