Linux Gurus, I need some help, please....


Recommended Posts

Hi guys I have a problem, I need some suggestions from all the experts and those who have experience in Linux. Before we go any further, I just wanna say a big THANK YOU to you guys for taking the time to help me out. I truly appreciate the help. I'm a total newbie to this so any help you guys can give me would be great!

Right, I ran into a problem when trying to install BlueCat Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 8.04.1.

My problem is this:

[email protected]:/tmp# cd /opt/BlueCat

[email protected]:/opt/BlueCat# /tmp/install

Installation directory must be empty

install: terminating

[email protected]:/opt/BlueCat# /bin/ls: cannot access *: No such file or directory

Could you guys tell me why I'm getting this error and how I can resolve it please? I've already set all the relevant folder permissions to rwx and I'm using sudo passwrd.

If you guys want, I can post everything I typed in the terminal. :confused_face:

Thanks a bunch guys! I really appreciate the help. ^-^

:sadcat:

@Jason, you had a look at their documentation? Yeah, it sucks, no help there. I tried emailing them, so far no reply.

@grawk, yup, done steps 1 and 2.

When I did this:

[email protected]:/opt/BlueCat# /tmp/install

It means I'm already in the "/opt/BlueCat" directory and I'm trying to execute the "install" file located in "/tmp" right? That's what their instructions told me to do... :confused:

What does "bash -x" do?

Thanks for trying to help me figure this out guys. I really appreciate the help. :)
