I need to delete a file!!!


Newbie

Can't seem to delete the XF86Config file so I can rename the .backup version to take it's place.

When at the text mode, how do you delete a file?

REMOVE XF86Config doesn't work.

There's no DEL command.

What Linux needs is DOS.

don't delete it, "mv" to XF86Config.old or something for security

Does it? Why?

Dos you type del and linux you type rm.

Like acid said though - you better move it not delete it until you are sure it works.
