Could someone help me with the following questions. I have
just recently installed Red Hat linux 6.0 on a new system. I have
installed the os as a server, without preconfiguring any of the
partition sizes, I just let the Red Hat install program set it up as
defualt. Every thing went well with the install except for three
1. Why, after doing a ' ls ' from the root dir ' / ' do all
the sub dirrectorys have a / after them. ie: etc/, dev/, home/. I
have another server that's the exact same os, ( only a consultant set
that one up ) yet that server doen't have the trailing slash's.
2. Why, after createing a new file on the server that I
loaded the os on, do all filenames end with an '*' ie: firstfile*
secondfile* etc. After doing a ls in any dir, where I created files,
the files end with a *.
3. How do I set the linux xwindow system to kde. What is the
easiest way to do that. I can log in as root, and for some reason (
after clicking on the desktop to get the menu's to come up ) there is
now option to get to linuxconf etc.
Any help would be appreaciated. And sorry for the newbee
