Im quite new to linux and have a problem.
I got a dedicated linux-server yesterday and everything worked fine. I ordered an additional IP and typed "netconfig --bootproto none --ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --netmask 255.255.252.0 --device eth0:".
To restart the network i typed "/etc/init.d/network restart" but the network never came back so i had to remotely reset the power to restart the server. Everything started upp fine and the IP worked.
However, the command "netconfig" didn't work anymore. Now i have to type "/usr/sbin/netconfig".
Today, i tried to install RRDtool. I unzipped all files and typed the commands as i was told to:
No errors but the command "rrdtool" didnt work. I had to type "/usr/local/rrdtool-1.0.45/bin/rrdtool".
I also tried to install another program. Same problem, the command didn't work.
Does someone know what is wrong? Can it be solved?
Very pleased for help
and yes, i was logged in as root the whole time.
