I am new to Linux so sorry if some terminology isn't correct
Okay so i used to have a webserver running SuSE 9.2 enterprise i got it free form a buddy but my harddrive died and now i installed the distrobution called Mandriva and i can't figure our how to get into a different directory
In SuSE you just type ls -a to view everything in the directory you're in which works in Mandriva but when you try to use cd / to et into a directory it tells you there's no such directory even though i can see it clear as day with ls -a. does anyone use Linux or Mandriva and know how to do this, i really need to get to my ssh config file.
Also, does anyone know if there is a way to allow root logins to the graphical interface on mandriva
okay I figured it out now this is probably another silly question. I used to use joe to edit config files in command line. What can i use in Mandriva?
The same applications that you used on SUSE should work on Mandriva. Joe is available in the Mandriva software repositories, so you can use rpmdrake (the gui package manager) to install it or login to a terminal as root and enter
