    Odd Linux Problem

    Hi all,
    I have recently installed CentOS on a computer and have been learning it. When I try to install a binary file I am told that the uncompress command cannot be found. I have not experienced any other problems with bash, so I dont understand why this is happening. I am still fairly new to linux and appreciate anyone who can help me with this.
    Thanks,
    Draco

    ----------------

    Also,
    I don't know if this is related but when I try to use sshd_config it says permission denied, even when in root.

    Get Gentoo...

    Heh - just kidding. Could you post a sample of the commands you issued and the output you got back from the shell?

    I just found a website that shows how to deal with the uncompress problem, but I still need help with the ssh permissions

    Well, it looks like you don't have enough permission. You can get an idea of your permissions by issuing the command 'ls -l' Mine looks like this:

    Code:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root   1354 Apr 15 19:59 ssh_config
    If you don't have something which looks pretty much like that, then you will need to change the permissions or possibly the owner/group
