    The page makes a few assumptions, firstly that you are reasonably familiar with the command line in Linux/FreeBSD, secondly that you can compile source code, and have gcc/g++ installed, thirdly, that you know how to change from normal user to root user to install the programs you compiled, and have read the "install" instructions where to find the config files, and that if you are not happy with the default location, how to change it at compile time ... etc.

    There are no Linux/FreeBSD binaries, due to possible library incompablities ... thus compiling from source is the way to go ... , it is easy, fast, and the only way to guarrantee that they will work on your system ...

    I've got IREXL but I can't get it to even start to run.

    Have you made the rexl/rexcfgl (?) files executable?

    Getting to ROOT is a problem. I pretty new to linux.

    Okay,

    First, you can log in as root with root's password, if your distro still allows this, or you can type "sudo command" and when asked, supply your own password, or you can type either su or su - and then enter root's password ...


    They say they are. The permissions seem to be set properly. At one attempt, I got REXL to try a mail run. It didn't go anywhere, as I haven't been able to run rexcfgl.

    I create a directory "irex" in the home directory of the user that runs the rest of the FidoNet system, in my case usually "mbse" and group "bbs"
    I unzip the irexl zip file using "unzip -L irexl229.zip" in the irex directory

    Then change ownership of all files as follows;

    chown mbse:bbs /opt/mbse/irex

    chmod + rwx /opt/mbse/irex/irexl
    chmod + rwx /opt/mbse/irex/irexcfgl

    This should make both these files execuatble ...

    or you can select these files in "mc" and then press F9 then select "Files" option on the menu bar, then select chown/chmod on the drop down menu ... , this might be easier ...

    If irex complains about a missing "termcap" file copy the one in the irex directory to /etc/ ...

    Also I have found that irex does not like being called from the path, and the only way to run it is to change to the irex directory, and then run it ... , I don't understand why this is so, ...

    That is because it is not on the path, and you need to call it as "./irexl", the fullstop slash combination tells the shell "bash" to look for the file in the current directory ...

    Thanks! I'll give your hints a try soon. I've got this in XP an my linux
    on the same machine. I need to set up a second system so I don't have
    to reboot. Then again, I think I can read BW and Termail that I get
    in the XP system in Ubuntu . . .

    University. I have a laptop on the yacht hooked into the GPS and auto pilot that came with CentOS 5 and nav software installed, it works well and quickly. Almost like OS2 in it is stable and not being developed further, but looks similar to Red Hat.

    BTW, isn't there a way to alias the commands? IOW, set linux to know
    that DIR = ls ?

    Yes, you set it in your .bashrc file, in your home directory ...

    as these examples show ... ;

    alias ls='ls -aF --color=always'
    alias ll='ls -l'
    alias search=grep

    Yep! I need a book!

    PDF format ... , and if you have a place I can upload them, you are

    What I need is a real book with paper pages that can be bookedmarked

    Re: test

    I tried as "me" and via "sudo". Even though I'm in terminal and
    in the correct directory, I get "file not found".

    That is because it is not on the path, and you need to call it as "./irexl", the fullstop slash combination tells the shell "bash" to
    look for the file in the current directory ...

    That threw me. I'm used to doing something like that if I want to run something in a differnt directly.

    Anyhow, it worked. I still have things to do to get it really running
    though.
