Three Simple Questions
These should be easy but I can't figure them out.
1. On my university's machines in an Xterm window, if you want to run a script in the current directory called compile, all you have to do is type 'compile' at the prompt. On my RH8 machine at home, you have to type './compile'. Why, and how do I change it?
2. Is there any huge difference in the functionality of the gcc java and javac that comes with RH8, and the Sun SDK versions? Will it affect my very basic programs?
3. When I had RH7.3, there was a useful thing called KPackage. I can't find it even though I've done a full install. Where did it go? Similarly, if you try to install a package and dependencies are missing, what do you do? I tend to search for it on Google but is there a better way (or even an automated process)?
