Hi, I am very new to Freebsd so this might be a dumb question, but I can't find an answer through FAQ..
I used the command "make install clean" to install some ported applications, and the installs went off without a hitch and reported successful.My problem is that I can't find the locations of the installed applications or the executables for the apps to run them.What am I missing here? Normally the instaled binary of the applications are in /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, /usr/X11R6/bin... If the applications has been succesfully instaled via ports, type whereis application-name, and it will show you the place. For example, previous to the instalation, if you type whereis xmms, it will just show you /usr/ports/chinese/xmms. After the instalation, typieng the same, whereis xmms, it will show you something like that. bash-2.05b$ whereis xmms xmms: /usr/X11R6/bin/xmms /usr/X11R6/man/man1/xmms.1.gz /usr/ports/chinese/xmms If you have /usr/X11R6/bin in your path, (echo $PATH will show it) just typing xmms in a terminal will run the application. Thank you in advance. Michael Brady ______________________________________________ LLama Gratis a cualquier PC del Mundo.
