Thread: CLI utilities?

  1. #1

    Default CLI utilities?

    I have been wondering how to get the terminal utilities such as "ifconfig" and "traceroute". I used to have Ubuntu and when you didn't have an application intstalled, it told you to type sudo apt-get install <package name>. i tried it on SUSE, but all i got was "bash: apt-get: command not found." then i tried "install" but I don't think thats the command. any help?

    what deltaflyer said, AND read up on the SUSE way in: Basic openSuSE
    concepts http://tinyurl.com/66h4rw

    that is, there are SEVERAL ways to install new programs on SUSE, none
    of them use apt..

    on the other hand, i do believe that both "ifconfig" and "traceroute"
    are in the default install...but, have you tried and not been able
    to use them??

    OH, they are both in /sbin which requires root...so switch to root first

    su -
    [give password...you will NOT see what you type]

    or use sudo
