What is the sudo command to run terminal?
« on: December 21, 2011, 01:30:24 pm »

I'm trying to install preload. And when I run sudo apt-get install prload it
does nothing.

So my questions is how to get the terminal to run commands?

sudo needs to be setup.

You can install things by using su and then enter root password.

apt-get install is not a Vector Linux command, try slapt-get

Have you tried using menu>system>Gslapt package manager

vsuper <your administrative command> will run things as root after you authenticate

example:
vsuper gslapt

preload sounds like an interesting application.  I'll have a look at building it for the repositories.
(Probably after christmas, though.)
