      I guess you guys missed the hey day of Amateur Radio when help was freely given when questions were asked. Nobody ever said "go buy the ARRL/RSGB Handbook and find out for yourself."

      I also guess you never saw those words in the Amateurs' Code about being friendly and helpful.

      To all newbies out there, keep asking your questions, because the majority of list subscribers will try to help you.

      FWIW I've been using Linux since1993/94 and I've rarely found help in the man pages. Sure there's lots of information there but a description and a list of command line options is a long way from giving practical examples on how to use that information. My saying has long been, "the man pages are written BY people who don't need them, FOR people who don't need them".

      I agree completely, and there���s also the thought that the gentlemen may have just needed an answer quickly due to time constraints.

      I���m in the linux learning process myself, and have been utilizing the ���google search��� for a lot, and even then sometimes come up with a dozen ways to accomplish the same thing.

      I always preferred the teach a man to fish theory.�� But for that to work, they have to be willing.��

      ��

      I am not sure that is the case here.�� The answer is easily found by putting the question into a search engine.

      When I started dabbling with Linux in the mid 90's there weren't as many answers readily available on the net, but there were local Linux users groups.�� Failing that, I would ask my friend.�� His answer was always the same "read the man page"

      ��

      With that said, I have another friend who picked up a Raspberry Pi, and totally missed the whole idea that it is a learning platform.�� When he asks me to set it up, I tell him to go finger diddle his Iphone and play angry birds and shut up :-)

      I believe there is a variable to apt-get

      I'm not going to give it away and I'm in the office...

      The education you are going to get is....
      the command "man"�� it's for manual.

      man apt-get

      that will show you the manual for apt-get.....

      If you're new to linus and man-�� return advances 1 line... space bar pages down
      you have to use CTRL Z to exit. CTRL C or CTRL X may also exit.

      Your homework assignment is to play with "man" try:
      man df
      man ls
      man lshw
