Default making software changes to Suse 10

Hello,
tried to use
after my software manager installed Suse 10 on a new partition, I used the YaST2 Software Management tool, as well as the same 5 installation CDs, to install various other programs that I need, including emacs (I'm an old-school Linux user, including RH 6.2 and 7.0). However, I find that the programs that I thought installed are not usable, i.e.:
icaw164201:~ # emacs
bash: emacs: command not found

Can anyone suggest where to look to track down these programs, and/or a robust, perhaps old-school way of installing these programs for Suse 10?

Cheers,

Maybe your path setting is wrong. Did you try to find the binary with:

updatedb

and then:

locate emacs

Thanks for your kind response. I eventually found everything in /var/tmp/dirinstall. I just have to figure out how to set my paths accordingly, and I'll be fine.

Cheers,

GME

You can set the PATH variable in /etc/profile. After the next login, you should have to new PATH.

You can also put a .profile (with a dot at the beginning) with the PATH into the user's homedir. Something like this:

Code:
# ~/.profile: executed by Bourne-compatible login shells.

if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
  . ~/.bashrc
fi

PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11
export PATH
