i have mandrake 10 installed with windows 2000 on my comp. n i m executing 1 linux program on d:/ of windows from linux. in tht windows directory i type
instead of going there everytime, i created 1 "soft symbolic link" in my /bin
ln -s ........[target]
first it was not allowing me to create one ....so i logged in as superuser
n made a link. i tried to run it as a normal user
it gave me an command not found error.
then i tried as :
it gave me the following error:
./executable : You can run the executable with name `executable' only.
but when i made a soft link in my home directory "/home/ranger
" it worked n i can run it as
i created "/home/ranger/bin
"folder ....made a sym link in this bin folder....added this folder to path: but again the same problem as i faced it when made a sym link in /bin
just tell me th reason n the solution for this.....
