How to make PATH?


Yo!

I installed the program called AYAM. But I dont know how to complete the installation.

The program says like this:

Installation completed.
Add /usr/local/ayam/bin to your PATH.
Add /usr/local/ayam/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Use 'make -f /usr/local/ayam/lib/Makefile uninstall' to uninstall

So....what to do? Please help a newbie.

Several ways, and you can get away with some syntax variations. I have
PATH="$PATH:/new/path";export PATH
in my ~/.bash_profile. Kinda sloppy, but it works.

As for the lib portion:

Edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add, on a new line:
/usr/local/ayam/lib
You'll need to do that as root, then run:
ldconfig
afterwards to load up the changes.

Cool
