Dynamic MMap

how do I create a directory?
how do I find a directory?
this is what I got:
[~]# var/lib/dpkg/status
-su: var/lib/dpkg/status: No such file or directory
[~]# create apt.conf
-su: create: command not found
[~]# /etc/apt/apt.conf
/etc/apt/apt.conf: line 1: APT:efault-Release: command not found
/etc/apt/apt.conf: line 2: APT::Cache-Limit: command not found
/etc/apt/apt.conf: line 3: APT::Get::Purge: command not found
/etc/apt/apt.conf: line 4: Acquire::cdrom::Mount: command not found

The cache limit hack is mainly for people who don't understand the real source of the problem, ... a messed up /etc/sources.list file, or a poorly planned partitioning scheme.

I agree with rickh about it being a hack.
Post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list so we can see if that is the problem.

And here is a link to help you with some basic CLI commands. To learn about any command type:
man "command"
apropos is very useful. To learn about it type:
man apropos
For example, try:
apropos make
If you look through the list generated you will see the command to create a directory.
