VLC installed but cannot be found
 
I just did an installation of vlc with Alien's Slackbuilds. It compiled and installed OK. But when I execute "vlc" at the prompt, it is reported as missing. A

bash-4.2 # vlc
Quote:

bash: vlc: command not found
I looked back at the messages showed up when I installed it, there isn't any suspicious line which might be causing the problem:

bash-4.2 # installpkg /tmp/vlc-2.0.3-i486-1alien.txz

Package vlc-2.0.3-i486-1alien.txz installed.
A search for 'vlc' came up with:

bash-4.2 # find / -name vlc

/root/vlc
/usr/lib/vlc
/usr/include/vlc
/usr/share/vlc
Anyone please give me some ideas on where it is lurking?. Thanks

Your running x86 version of Slack?

To find binaries, source or manual page(s) a more appropriate command is "whereis vlc".

To check which files have been installed by "installpkg", type "less /var/log/packages/vlc*" or open /var/log/packages/vlc* in a text editor.

EDIT FYI I append the file /var/log/package/vlc-2.0.1-1alien. it's not exactly the same version as yours and it's from installation of a an already built package but your shouldn't be very different.
