domainname - permission denied


Hi,

I have recently installed debian 3.2. Set up all the configurations. However, when I run the command "domainname -f", if give me "domainname: command not found". I then tried running this command in the directory where the command is, I get "./domainname: Permission denied"

Could anyone enlighten me to what is going on?

Thanks!!
PCKHO

Go to the directory containing the 'domainname' executable and do 'ls -al domainname' and post the output. It may not have the executable bit sit or something like that.

Thanks Matir for the suggestion. I've checked the directory.

"hostname" command which resides in the same directory does not have the executable mode enabled as well. But it could be executed. "domainname" still can't be run.

Did you follow Matir's suggestions regarding to post the output of the ls command (you could do that for the "hostname" command, too) and Asking questions the smart way?

Hi,

This is the directory that I found the files. Not sure if it is the correct one. The directory is "/proc/sys/kernel"

Rgds.
