i recently reinstalled slack after i messed things up real good(at least i thought it was me, installing a newer glibc along with the older version in order to get firefox to install)-i went from 9.0 to 9.1 and repartitioned to get rid of a long unused NT on hda1(mbr had been screwed somehow)-tried lilo on superblock, but no go, so redid on mbr and now must pass a "root=hda1" to the boot prompt-that's the background.
tonight i'm on mozilla looking at a site which describes startup messages and how to use chkconfig to see which services are on for startup. i switch desktops and open an rxvt and su, then "chkconfig". i get;
"command not found", so i figure it's a redhat thing and i jump back to mozilla. i then think "well don't leave that root window open", so i switch back, and there, on the screen is the following:
bash-2.05b#: command not found
bash-2.0.5b# Richard problems etc. here. However, they still look usable albeit uglier than wished.
when i arrow up thru previous commands the "Richard" line appears as if it had been a command. any thoughts would be appreciated. thanx.
