ifconfig and networking with windows 7
Hello all. My name is jason and I have a slight problem and Im new to linux. I actually found a similar thread but no solution. It did get me going in right direction, but as I ve said, no solution....that I know of.
I am running a mepis machine and I believe it is based on debian/ubuntu SQueeze. When I open konsole/terminal and type 'ifconfig' , I get "Command not found". Following some reading I found that ifconfig is in sbin folder of mepis.
I cd into sbin folder and typed ls. Sure enough, ifconfig is listed. So then, since i was already in the sbin folder, I typed 'ifconfig' again and I received the same 'command not found'. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong ? I very much appreciate you taking time to read this as I am certain you have received this particulay query before.
Also on a side note: how come when I type something like "cd /home/username/Music", I get no file or directory exist. Yet if I type all of that without the /'s it works ? EX. "cd home username Music it works .
