it's 'normal' that the system doesn't recognize the 'dnetc' command until
it's not in the /bin directory
to execute you rc5 client just go to the path, ex : 'cd /root/dnet' and type
then './dnetc' then the client will start
if not try a 'chmod 777 dnetc' before and resart './dnetc'

in linux world, if you didn't set a symbolic link in the '/bin' directory to
you executable file the system doesn't recognize the command, but unlike DOS
you cannot start a command just by typing its name when you are in the right
directory, you must precise the path to the system, that why you must type
'./' to tell the system : run the command 'dnet' from the CURRENT directory
( ./ )

hope it helps..

Lycoris is known to be a very "windows-like" version
of Linux, meaning at least that it uses a GUI that is
similar. So I downloaded the client from the web, and
it showed up as a zipped file (tar file, whatever) on
the screen.

I clicked it, and it showed me the files inside. There
was a Docs folder full ot text files, a dnetc file
(which Linux told me was an executable) and a file
called dnetc.1, which I dont know what it was.

I previously downloaded a buff-in.rc5 file.

So all these files are in the same directory now. The
dnetc executable has a cool little gear icon. I
clicked on it to start it up, and nothing happens. I
look under the processes running on the system, and
its not there. I was expecting the first-time user
set-up screen that I normally get with a windows based

I opened up a shell, and changed directory to the
folder, and saw the dnetc executable there. When I
type it in to run it "dnetc", it said it couldn't find
the file, even though the ls command showed it was

So thats where I am now.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully, after messing around
with Linux for a couple months, it will get easier.
