    ghex editor installation problems

    Attempted to load ghex; first load seemed to be ok. Because of a warning I tried again; procedure I used shown below.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    [root@uruserver root]# cd ~xxxxxxx
    [root@uruserver xxxxxx]# rpm -i ghex-2.8.1-1.1.fc2.rf.i386.rpm

    warning: ghex-2.8.1-1.1.fc2.rf.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature:
    NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6 (same warning I got the first time)
    package ghex-2.8.1-1.1.fc2.rf is already installed

    In hopes this error was not critical I attempted to use ghex and got this,

    [root@uruserver xxxxxxx]# ghex plNetAuthServer_xxx.xxx.x.x
    -bash: ghex: command not found
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    As far as I know I have a clean Fedora Core 2 install with no errors.

    Many may think, "why did he not use a newer version of Fedora". I have not be able to do so because of my computer hardware limitations or software problems. But that problem is not the issure here.

    Any help in understanding what the heck is going on would be greatly appreciated.

    I think Red Hat differs from other distro by requiring the terminal users to call the commands from the /sbin directory while others prefer to include it as part of the path.

    Try
    Code:
    /sbin hedit filename
    or you can do a search of hedit like
    Code:
    find / -name hedit
    and call it from its directory

    The binary might not be called ghex. On Fedora 15 it's ghex2. You can see the contents of an installed RPM package with
    Code:
    rpm -ql ghex
