New to Linux. Please Please Please Help
I bought a netbook for the wife to use when i'm away at sea. Never used Linux before but didn't think it would be that hard to understand.
Basically i am trying to update Firfox from the version 2 to latest version
It says the operating system is Linpus Linux Lite v1.0.21.E
So far i have spent 2 nights looking through the internet for various commands.
This is what i have done.
went to mozilla site and downloaded latest version. Now once on computer and downloaded im having differculties installing it.
I have read the "how to's" on here and tried various bits but cant get it to work.
i try installing and it says file doesnt exist. I tried creating a directory to put downloaded files into but it says file doesnt exist when i try and do it
I have found that the yum commands work best. Not sure if this is correct or not.
Please can someone give me a step by step on how to do this. Please basically. I know this is probably easy but i really am a newbie to this so i'd really appreciate your help.
Its on a Acer aspire one
How do i sign in as admin aswell? i turn on computer and it just goes into normal/user mode. I cant click on the "check for updates" tab on tools
Massive thanks in advance
