Red Hat I keep reading all these tales of woe of people having bad experiences with Linux. Sure, I've had my own bad experiences, across many an OS, but just lately I've been running a Red Hat Linux 9 desktop full-time at home and have yet to run into any major issue. What follows is an overview of my personal experiences with Linux. But first, a bit about me.

Apt in Red Hat 9
by DaaT on Tue 22nd Apr 2003 23:18 UTC

Hey folks, small quirk with Red Hat 9, must be me doing something wrong.

I installed it yesterday and wanted to do what i did with RH 8, that was mentioned here, can't remember exactly but was something like

apt-get update
apt-get install synaptic

Then use Synaptic. Problem is, when i type apt-get (or just apt) from terminal (su or not) it says no command found. I downloaded and installed apt from freshrpms and even downloaded synaptic from there, rpm seems to install fine but then the app is nowhere to be found.. any ideas?

Thanks,
DaaT
