where is "whereis"
« on: August 03, 2015, 03:37:16 PM »
I am new to Tiny Core.  Loaded CorePlus-current.iso into 349M of RAM on an old Dell Inspiron 2600 laptop using "plop boot manager" and a USB drive (CDROM does not work properly).  Tiny Core was the only distribution that would come up and work at all.

Using App->Cloud->Browse->Download Only of "util-linux" Status shows it completed OK.

Tried to use "whereis" but it was not present.    Depends tabs shows it is supposed to be in /usr/local/bin/. 

It is not there.  What am I doing incorrectly?

Apps "provides" function would tell you that it is in the util-linux extension.

I have been able to download and run Apps such as "xfe".  But after downloading the util-linux utilities the "whereis" command is never placed anywhere that I can find.

Download Only  does not "install" the extension.
Try
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i util-linux
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)
