TCC RedHat FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Tech Computer Center logo

Before August 2003, our Linux workstations ran a Slackware release of Linux. To improve service and maintainability, we have changed to a Red Hat Linux release. This will impact Linux users in a number of ways. Here are some frequently asked questions:

I get `JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly. We cannot execute /usr/local/bin/java'.
Change the definition of JAVA_HOME in your .bashrc or .cshrc to "/usr/jdk1.2".
Why is the sort command not sorting things in the correct order?
Here's an advisory from the man page for sort:
*** WARNING *** The locale specified by the environment affects sort order. Set LC_ALL=C to get the traditional sort order that uses native byte values.
Why do I get a `xxx not found' message when trying to run an application?
If you have been using a package but it is missing now, please file a ticket at
Why doesn't the man command give me manual pages any more?
In your .bashrc or .cshrc file, change the MANPATH to include /usr/share/man/.
