Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i dont want to think and going to bed in min... rename your My Downloads folder to MyDownloads (remove the space). and try the command again, so the path will have no spaces, and you dont need the dbl quotes
Run the command with quotes as in your first example, but replace the "~" with "/home/<yourname>". When you run the command as "sudo", you are telling it to run as root, and I doubt root has the file "/root/My Downloads/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.bin".
Edit: sudo might understand the "~" as being you, but from your error message, it is having trouble resolving it. Specifiying the complete directory path should still take care of it.
ya, padma.. i dont think that since using sudo will replace /home/username with /root, ie i dont think it will look in roots home folder rather than the currently logged in users' folder. but ya, specifying the complete path might be good to try. i used sudo and ~ and it worked fine but i didnt have any spaces
Ok, I moved the jre SH file to my desktop, to make things simpler. These are the error messages I got.
sudo bash "~/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.bin"Desktop
~/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.binDesktop: ~/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.binDesktop: No such file or directory
bobby@cpe-24-174-165-252:/usr/java $ ~/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.binDesktop: ~/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.binDesktop: No such file or directory
bash: /home/bobby/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.binDesktop:: No such file or directory
I did it, I did it, hot damn I did it! It finally is working. It took me 2 days to download a single file, but it is done! Thanks everyone, and especially nadroj, who has spent long nights explaining and helping. This ends this thread, but we made it to page 5, so good work.
As Jase said, you have to be root.
Open a terminal (console)
You will see that on your menu.
At the command prompt, enter
(root password) - (invisible)
cd /home/bobby/My Downloads
rpm -ivh 3ddesktop-x.y.z.tar.gz
Then follow the package instructions
so all is well lyko? gj and your welcome. things similar to this should be somewhat more comfortable from herein.
your post before last looked like you type the wrong path to the file so you got the error that the file/directory didnt exist, because it didnt.
note: i think with limewire in order to connect you have to share files.. at least mine wouldnt connect till i was sharing files.
