Hey guyz, I followed the instructions at http://sudonetworks.com/wiki/index.php?title=Dynamips#Installation_Steps and installed Dynagen on my eeePC, but the problem is that when I enter

./dynamips -H 7200

I get,

bash: ./dynamips: Permission denied

I would really appreciate it if you guyz could help me out with it, so that I can prepare for my CCNP exams

Thanks,

Rehman

On your eee? That's interesting.

Sounds like maybe the dynamips binary isn't marked executable. do a "chmod a+x dynamips".

Thankyou soo much greg, That worked....and Dynagen is happily working on my machine now

Also could you please point me to a place where I could learn about installing software,s on Linux (like tar.gz and bin, its really confusing) I am used to using windows where the softwares just get installed at a mouse click, but I would love to transition to linux....

Not sure there's a website for it - but for tar.gz the miracle command to start with is:

tar -zxf <filename>

That will gunzip the file (decompress) and un-tar it - leaving you with the actual files. Usually (if the programmer is polite) there will be a README file in there explaining how to install things.

Kind of depends on the program though - some have their own installers, some require the user to install them somewhere themselves.

Hello,
most, if not all, Linux distributions support packages. As far as I know the EEE uses a (modified) Xendros (sp?) distrubition. So maybe it is a good idea to learn which package system the EEE uses and how to install/update software with this system.

HTH!
Bye, Tore

True on the packages (.deb, .rpm, etc) but most smaller apps are just tar.gz files and not packaged which is what he was asking I believe.

For your flavor of linux you should absolutely be familiar with the packaging system (RPM, APT, YAST, etc) to be able to keep your system up to date.
