Hi this is my first post, I am a newbie to Linux PLEASE HELP!
I had loaded RH9 but then got a copy of FC1 so clean istalled FC1, everything went fine and the sys. worked great, I chose workstation install.
Then I tried to load new software from a cd as described in my ref. book's and mag's. The three trick pony, after tgzip the file and cd to the dir, in this case it was a game I had placed in my usr/home/game/gamename...
When I cd to game I could ls and see the files and here is where the problems started.
1) After the unzip there is a sh. file called setup.sh I typed ./setup to run the setup file in the curr dir, but could not, instead I got a diff. setup for RH9/FC1?
2) Thinking that I somehow had to run ./configure first I typed ./configure,
to which I get the msg $no such file or command?
and nothing happens, I have tried all sorts of thing's, I was su when issueing the command but to no avail.
3) Also when running install/remove new software it only list the software installed from the cd, and does not have a tab for 'Add/Remove' software.
Am I doing something wrong, or not doing enough?
I would really like to resolve this and get to using and loading software in Linux, because I really hate XP and MS, but I cannot figure this out. I went back and clean installed RH9 with 'Everything' same problem?
I have a 1 Ghz AMD 60 Gig HD 256 Ram, Any help would be appreciated, thank's.
