I'm a newie on Linux. I have a question in regards to pointers.
We are installing openfiler on a linux machine. One of the linux machine has:
openfiler -> /usr/sbin/httpd
The other one doesn't have the pointer "->". What does the symbol "->" means? And how do I make it to work? Any help is appreciated.
Did you get this output from the ls -l command? If so, it indicates that openfiler is a symbolic link (like a shortcut in Windows) to the program httpd, which is in the directory (folder) /usr/sbin. When you type "openfiler" the httpd program will be the one that actually runs and does the work.
