Under 2.0, the printing commands are in with the networking packages. If you didn't install networking, you don't have them. This is easily remedied by installing the NetKit-B RPM off your CD-ROM or by FTP'ing the newer NetKit-B-lpr package from a 2.1 mirror near you (see above for a list).
Under 2.1 you are most likely just missing the NetKit-B-lpr package from your installation. Install that and everything will be fine.
It's called the user group scheme, and it's described in the manual. What it basically does is allow you to use groups to allow multiple people to use a common set of files and edit them, transparently. It goes like this:
At this point, by making the default umask 002 and giving everyone a private default group, you can easily set up groups which users can take advantage of without doing any magic. Just create the group, add the users, and do the above chown and chmod on the group's directories.
We only ship xmh because it is part of the standard X11 distribution. xmh is basicaly shipped as-is from the X11 distribution, and is most likely broken. We've found that there are several better alternatives. If you want to use mh mail, install the mh RPM and the exmh RPM. exmh is a much better GUI mail reader than xmh.
Some of you may be accustomed to other distributions and the fact that color ls is installed by default. Red Hat does not do that, but it is possible. The best way to find info on it is to do:
In short, you can probably put something like
.bash_profile file. You also need
alias ls="color-ls --color=yes" in there if you want it enabled
You need to do
make zImage or
make zlilo instead of
make zlilo is the best choice for most
beginners as it will not only build the kernel, but also
install it as the default for you if the make goes well. Be
careful doing this, however, as you will lose your old kernel.
make zImage will build a compressed kernel and place it
/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot. You must copy it to
your root dir and run lilo yourself to use this one.
If you used make, you got a file called vmlinux. This is an uncompressed kernel image, and will NOT work! LILO will only boot a compressed kernel.
Simple. Read the RPM-HOWTO, available in the
directory on any Red Hat Mirror.
Lets say you do the following as root:
You'll get ``hello: command not found''
gcc -o hello hello.c hello
By default, `.' is not in your path. You must run:
(dot, slash, h, e, l, l, o with no spaces)
For security reasons `.' should not be in your path.
You need to answer 'y' to the line that asks:
If you didn't do that, you'll need to rebuild your kernel and enable it.
You didn't read the Netscape installation instructions!
When you untar the distribution of Netscape, you will get an
nls directory. Depending on where you untar the distribution,
you will need to set some environment variables. You should add
lines similar to the following to your
Change the above paths accordingly to reflect the actual location where you installed everything.
export XKEYSYMDB=$XKEYSYMDB-/home/foobar/lib/X11/XKeysymDB export XNLSPATH=$XNLSPATH-/home/foobar/lib/X11/nls
You most likely didn't install the kernel sources. Find the
sources for the kernel on your system and install them. Then
/usr/src/linux exists. You may need to make
a symlink from
/usr/src/linux to the directory with
your kernel version.
Then you need to
cd /usr/src/linux and do:
and then you can hit control-C after a few seconds (it
makes some symlinks that you might need right at the beginning).
There is currently no Openwindows package for RedHat 2.x. It is available in Redhat 3.0.3 in xview-3.2p1-2.i386.rpm
Before asking where some particular piece of software is (like
diff for example), please see any RedHat mirror
and look in
current/i386/RedHat/rpm-contents.gz. This file
has a query of all available RPMs and their contents.
through it for what you want and it will probably lead you to an
RPM that you don't have installed. Use

xtexsh is based on older versions of Tcl/Tk than what we ship. Unfortunately, it has not been ported to the newer versions as of yet and it does not work at all.
netcfg is the victim of poor GUI design in the nameserver department. To add a nameserver:
