Wink alias newbie

yo peeps,

I'll str8 to the point. I had Mandrake 9.2 not long ago. When I wanted to run a program, i didn't have to type './' before the binairy. Now with Mandrake 10.0, I have to do it. It's annoying and I'd like to make it back to the way it was in 9.2 without reinstalling 9.2.

Thx in advance.

you just have to add it to the $PATH valiable like this

export PATH=$PATH:./

this will ass ./ to the default searchable path.


echo $PATH

to see them all

you can add other things like

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/jdk1.3.2/bin

that would add


to the searchable path
