Redhat 9.0 not recognizing executable files

Hello All,

I recently installed Redhat 9.0 on a computer I have as well as glut. I was able to get everyting in glut to compile but when I try to run the test/demo programs included it gives me soemthing along these lines:

bash: test19 command not recognized

Though if I startx I can double click on some of them and they will work.

Anyone have any ideas of what I'm doing wrong?

have you checked your path including your working directory?
or try run ./a.out suppose a.out is the executable you are talking about.
